Injured baby's medical condition improves but she is now in danger of being taken away from her parents. Assistance fund established.

Noblely Yvonne Lawson Assistance Fund

The good news is that Noblely Lawson's medical condition is beginning to improve. Noblely is the one-year-old baby girl who was critically injured after she and her family were mowed down by a careless driver as they pushed Noblely's stroller down Sharon Road West in south Charlotte on July 6th. The pressure on Noblely's brain has been greatly reduced and she has been taken off medication that was temporarily paralyzing her. She has begun to respond, smiling more, moving her mouth and opening her right eye. Her left eye is badly damaged from the orbital fractures she received as a result of the accident.

The bad news is that if her parents aren't able to obtain suitable living arrangements in a house or an apartment on the ground floor, DSS will take Noblely away from them. Noblely's parents, Summer Brown, 16 and Shane Lawson, 19, currently have no permanent place to live. Before the accident they had been living with Shane's brother at a week-to-week motel. Since the accident, Shane has been staying at the hospital with Noblely but will have to return to his job at Wendy's next week in order to keep it.

An assistance fund has been established for Noblely with the goal of collecting enough money to prepay a year's worth of rent in a suitable house or apartment. DSS will inspect the premises before Noblely will be allowed to live there with her parents. Contributions of meal vouchers are being sought for the parents, who are spending their time at the hospital with Noblely. To date, Mama Ricotta's and Outback Steakhouse on East Boulevard have each provided a meal to the parents.
