Local Girl Named National Ambassador

Local Girl Named National Ambassador

When looking at 12-year-old Madelyn Edgecomb, one would see a happy & smiling young
lady who loves to read, make crafts and listen to music. When you look a little closer and see the scars
and stitch marks on her head, a different story is being told.
Madelyn suffers from an incurable brain condition called Hydrocephalus, and the scars and stitch marks
are the result of the multiple brain surgeries to implant the device in her brain, known as a shunt that
keeps her alive.
Occurring in approximately 1 of every 500 births and in over One Million Americans today, (including
former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords), Hydrocephalus is a condition in which excessive fluid gathers
in the brain, abnormally widening spaces in the brain and placing potentially harmful pressure on brain
tissues. Because of lack of advancements in treatment, many affected individuals are left unable to lead
full and productive lives.

Food Distribution at Christ Church August 23rd

God's Bread Box will hold our monthly food distribution August 23rd at 9:00 AM in the parking lot of Christ Church, 740 N 19th Ave in Lemoore.

We have been distributing food to the needy for three years. Originally, it was budgeted to help 250 families with a box of nutritious food. This year we have stretched our budget to fill an average of 350 boxes each month. The economy may be improving elsewhere, but there are still many people in Kings County/Lemoore area needing help. We are a non-denominational 501(c)3 organization and are completely staffed by volunteers. Some of our funding comes from grants, but most is from the generosity of the community of Lemoore.

Donations are needed to help feed the hungry in Lemoore. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
