Miniature horse lifts spirits in a big way
Lynn 3-year-old with cancer meets Idaho
Three-year-old Bridget Vinard received a pleasant surprise Sept. 13 when she was visited by a miniature horse named Idaho.
The visit was a welcome respite for Bridget who is being treated for rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare type of cancer that forms in soft tissue. She had surgery in August, and is now in the midst of 42 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
Bridget has also received considerable support from the Lynn community. A Gofundme page dedicated to her recovery has far surpassed their initial fundraising goal of $7,000 with $11,160 raised so far. LaVigne pledged that any funds not spent on Bridget’s recovery would be donated to the Jimmy Fund Clinic.
The Gofundme page is “Support Little Bridget Vinard.”cache="no-cache" ttl="0"]
