Benefit ride for 12-year-old girl


July 16, 2014 | 11:17 AM

There will be a benefit motorcycle ride Saturday for Trinity Goodson, 12, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2012.

The ride will start and finish at Lincoln Hills Christian Church in Corydon with registration at 10 a.m. and kickstands up at 11:30.

The cost will be $25 for a rider and $10 for passengers. Singles and groups are welcome for the ride that will include three rest stops and should return at about 2:30 p.m. A meal and beverages will be available at the end of the ride.

The event, sponsored by Harrison County Heroes on Wheels, also will include a poker run, a 50-50 drawing and a drawing for a $25 entry fee. Prizes will be given for bug splatter and longest travel participant. Riders must be present to win drawing or door prizes.

Bracelets and T-shirts will also be available for purchase Saturday.

For more information, contact Chuck Conrad at 812-572-3287, Cameron Green at 812-267-4748 or Darrell McGuffy at 812-620-8627.

In 2012, a tumor a little smaller than a two-liter bottle was found wrapped around Trinity's lung, pushing her heart out of place into the right lung and esophagus. After one year and three days of chemotherapy treatments, she was declared in remission.

However, in August, she started complaining of headaches and eventually blurred vision accompanied the headaches. It was eventually determined that lymphoma was found on her brain and spinal column. She's now in need of a bone-marrow transplant.

"She's about to begin a very difficult chapter of her life, one that no child or family should have to endure," Conrad said. "Trinity's family did OK financially through the first year and a half of her battle with a little help from friends and family. That year and a half took all of their savings and every extra penny they had to fight Trinity's cancer and help take care of their other two children, Cerenity and Autumn. They were just starting to get back on their feet when Trinity relapsed."

    Prayers for this family. I couldn't imagine going through something like this. No child should have to endure this much pain. Your in my thoughts.
