Upstate group helps teen diagnosed with muscular dystrophy

Posted: Updated:

An Upstate community service group is asking for help to make the dreams come true for a Easley teen diagnosed with muscular dystrophy.

The Cowboys and Angels Ranch Lean on Me Project is hosting a volunteer day July 20th at 8:30 a.m. to help the teen's family. It will benefit 17-year-old Brandon Hammond and his family.

The group is working to finish building a home for his grandparents, including putting in hard wood floors that are wheel chair accessible, and air conditioning and heat. Once that is completed, Hammond will be able to move home with his family before his chronic illness continues to progress. His family has been struggling due to the financial constraints of paying his hospital bills, to get the house finished.

Cowboys and Angels are asking the community to help out with their time, or money.

"We'd like to have more community support to help bless this family, so they actually can get moved in," said organizer Jan Dial. "Brandon is full care, so it will really relieve the family, if they get to move into a finished home."

The group is asking for volunteers to join them July 20th at 8:30 a.m. at 126 Abigail Lane, Easley SC 29640 to help them clean windows, paint interior walls, clean floors to prepare for flooring & cabinetry of the grandparents residence.

Mail checks or money orders to:

Jan Dial/ Lacee Dial memorial fund

Memo: 'LEAN ON ME' project

Piedmont, SC 29673
