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.

Coat Drive For Children In Need

Coat Drive For Children In Need

Clovis Police Corporal Dustin Dodd, joined by Officer Scott Borsch, is renewing his winter coat drive for children in the City of Clovis this holiday season.

Last year, the public and members of the police department donated a total of 475 new or gently used coats and jackets for those in need.

Donors are encouraged to drop off new or gently used coats to any of the following partner locations: Caltrans, which provided the drop off bins at area stores and churches; Target Corporation; Walmart Supercenter on Herndon Avenue; Kohl's at Sierra Vista Mall and all Clovis CVS stores.

Several area churches are accepting donations as well.

The goal is to provide a coat for every child in need in the Clovis Unified School District this winter season.

The coat drive runs through December 15th.

Please note, there are drop-off bins located in several Fresno stores as well.
