-- The Lynd Company announces the Fairways at Wilson Creek Benefit to be held on Sunday, August 23rd, 2pm at The Golf Club at McKinney. The benefit tournament is for Lynd employee Christy Salmon, who was involved in a head on car collision July 5th, 2009. Christy is currently in critical care at a Ft. Worth Hospital and is making daily progress. We are requesting your support to make this tournament a successful fund raiser for her family by donating a raffle item, hole prize, sponsorship or participation in the tournament.
Christy was on her way home from helping a friend move, when a driver lost control of his pickup, skidded across the median and struck her head-on on the driver’s side of her vehicle. The impact rolled the dash back into Christy, trapping her and cutting off her air supply. When the paramedics got the dash and the air bag off of her, they found a fractured femur & severed artery, fractured tibia, and a fractured arm, along with possible severe internal injuries. She had severe bleeding and was immediately airlifted to Hendrick Hospital in Abilene. Once she was stabilized, she was again airlifted to JPS Trauma Center ICU in Ft. Worth where she remains.
Christy is 33 years old and has been married to husband, Kirk for over 9 years. They have one son, Ryan, age 7. She is an amazing daughter, wife, and mother; to know her is to love her! Employed by the Lynd Corporation for just over a year, she loves her job and goes above and beyond to make us proud that she is a part of our team. Christy has always been the one willing to lend a helping hand to those in need and now that responsibility lies upon us. Christy needs your help. She is unable to work due to the extreme nature of her injuries, and mounting medical bills will soon take their toll. The driver that hit her only carried $50,000 liability, which was depleted before she left the scene of the accident. Two air flights, spending 3 weeks in ICU, and facing many months of therapy and rehabilitation will certainly be financially and emotionally overwhelming.
