YOU CAN HELP: Benefit breakfast Saturday in Highland Park for West Seattleite hit by train

This Saturday, you’re invited to a pancake breakfast at Highland Park Improvement Club (12th & Holden) to raise money for an 18-year-old West Seattle resident who survived being hit by a train last month in South Seattle. His godmother e-mailed WSB to get the word out, saying that Vincent Hance “is super lucky to be alive and doing amazing!” The event Saturday is from 9 am to noon, with a $5 donation requested to support Vincent’s family: “They don’t have a lot of money and his mother has missed a lot of work.” They also are accepting donations via a GoFundMe page, which tells the story of the incident that left Vincent in the Harborview ICU.

    The link for the funding page doesn’t seem to be working. This one from the Forum does:

    Thank you HPIC for providing an avenue for the best of our community to show itself. I am so appreciative of what you all bring to Riverview and Highland Park.

    Good luck Vincent

    It breaks my heart every tome I read one of these stories. People in this country should not need to resort to GoFundMe for medical assistance. If this country would just behave like a civilized country (and I know that’s asking a lot these days) we would have a single-payer health care system and a functioning safety net for everyone, not just for those with friends and the savvy to launch an online campaign.

Sorry, comment time is over.
