On August 7th, 18 year old Sam Jordan was in a near fatal dirt bike accident. He was air cared to UC Hospital to the SICU where they found he had a severe spinal cord injury, along with a broken wrist, broken ribs, a broken collar bone, a collapsed lung, and brain shearing. He had surgery on the 8th where they inserted rods into his back. Although his spinal cord was not severed, he did severely bruise his spinal cord. The doctors are unsure as to whether or not Sam will ever walk again. They stated it could take several months, up to a year or two before they will know the damage and whether or not Sam will get sensation back in his legs. We are remaining hopeful that Sam will in fact walk again. Sam’s biggest hurdle at the moment is his lungs. Sam suffered from severe lung trauma. On top of the collapsed lung, Sam has what is known as ARDS. This stands for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. He is currently on a ventilator, but making progress.
On September 22nd, Sam was moved to Daniel Drake Rehabilitation Center in Cincinnati, OH, where he will continue his recovery. He is expected to be there for the next 6 months.
We are asking for your love and prayers for Sam and his family. The goal of this benefit is to raise money for medical bills, and any necessary modifications needed at home. His medical bills are now well over $500,000.

ATLA’s holiday sale held in memory of Jackie O’Brien

10:00 am

This year, members of the Anderson Township Library Association are honoring one of their own by dedicating the Holiday Used Book Sale in November to the late Jackie O’Brien. The sale will be held:
• Thursday, Nov. 6, 10 a.m.–8 p.m.
• Friday, Nov. 7, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
• Saturday, Nov. 8, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.

A longtime Anderson Township resident, O’Brien and her husband were instrumental in forming the first Anderson Township Library Committee in 1980 and remained involved with the group.

“Jackie never met a stranger, never said an unkind word about anyone and was a dear friend to the Anderson Library Committee (now Anderson Township Library Association),” said ATLA member Jackie Weist. “She was a goodwill ambassador and could always make us laugh. Since she was a founding member of the Anderson Library Committee, we decided to dedicate the fall holiday sale to Jackie. And since she loved to travel, we also presented a three-volume set of National Geographic travel books in her honor to the Anderson Branch Library using the funds donated to ATLA in her memory.”

Proceeds from the Holiday Used Book Sale help fund programs and materials at the Anderson and Mt. Washington Branches. Both branches accept donations of books, CDs, DVDs and gently used games and puzzles, as well as eReader devices to be raffled off. Raffles with various prizes will be held each day of the Holiday Used Book Sale. ATLA accepts cash and checks; no credit cards. The Anderson Branch is located at 7450 State Road. For more details, call 513-369-6030 or visit www.cincinnatilibrary.org/support/atla.html.

Rock ‘n Aspire is a grassroots fundraiser created by the wife of a young police officer in Cincinnati, Ohio, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis right before their wedding. Fans of music, the couple decided to plan a concert to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The 1st annual Rock ‘n Aspire concert took place in 2010, and the event has successfully raised more than $20,000 to date.

“After my husband was diagnosed with MS in 2008, just weeks before our wedding, I developed a passion for creating a world free of MS. There are so many people in Cincinnati affected by MS, and this concert helps fund the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.” said Simcha Kackley, founder and host of Rock ‘n Aspire.

“The MS Society has been a positive influence in not only the community programming and everyday lives of people living with MS but also a driving force for research. As a neuroscience PhD candidate at University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, I see the impact that the MS Society has in the research field through their many grants. Our goal is to cure MS and we are making progress!” said Haley Titus-Mitchell, Rock ’n Aspire committee member and daughter of MS patient.
This year’s concert will be bigger and better than ever with four great bands, appetizers, a cash bar including a Signature MS Drink, AND over $5,000 in raffles all night long!
