Lindsey’s Wish, Inc. is a not for profit organization to assist children in Highlands county who are battling cancer through charitable donations and fundraising efforts. Lindsey’s Wish plans to be a tax-exempt incorporation that will distribute funds to the children’s family for medical expenses or assistance in any other financial needs.
The creation of Lindsey’s Wish is to carry out the legacy of a child who battled cancer in Highlands County for more than two and a half years. Lindsey Hammortree was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer on May 12, 2010. Lindsey’s wish was to help children fighting cancer. Lindsey passed much too soon on December 10, 2012 but with hopes that people will remember her fight and support other kids battling much like she did.
