She asks everyone to do what they can to help – give blood, pray – things that have truly changed the course of this young man’s life. “Please consider donating,” she pled. “Noah has received several units since he has been in the hospital…can’t imagine not having that available for him.”

The innocent faces are pictured at left, the acting victims: Kayla Simon, Cloey Simon, members of SADD, Reed Day, Brynn Negangard and Machaela Cobler, SADD member. See more photo coverage on the back page of today’s paper.
