On May 26, Angie Stark-Czerniejewski and her four daughters were enjoying their weekend when something tragic happened that would change their lives forever.
Nine-year-old Cadence suffered fourth degree burns over more than 50 percent of her body, while two of her sisters suffered from third degree after a small, alcohol-fueled fire being used to cook marshmallows spilled over.
At this time the length of Candence’s recovery is unknown. She will undergo several skin graft surgeries and physical and occupational therapy. Wings Flights of Hope has been flying Cadence back and forth from Buffalo to Boston, MA for care.
The expenses the family will incur will be ongoing for the foreseeable future so 26 Shirts has created a “My Little Buffalo” shirt to help raise funds.
The Cadence’s Road to Recovery
Facebook page read: “To everyone that has had us in your prayers all this time, thank you. It is truly a miracle that Cadence is here with us now. She still has a long road of physical and emotional recovery ahead of her, but the power of prayer is real. We are so thankful for everyone’s love.”
A meat raffle and basket raffle will also be held at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 12 at St. Mary’s High School, 142 Laverack Avenue in Lancaster to benefit the Czerniejewski Family. Email email@example.com
