We hope to see all our friends in the Lynchburg community come out and show their support for young Andre during this charity event, and our goal is to ensure he has all the support he needs
Lynchburg, VA (PRWEB) May 11, 2017
Forest Hill Insurance Agency, a central Virginia firm offering financial planning and insurance management assistance to communities throughout the Lynchburg metropolitan region, is embarking on a charity drive to gather support for a young local man facing a deadly disease.
Andre Norwood, the young man who is the focus of the charity event, has recently been diagnosed with Rasmussen encephalitis, also sometimes referred to as Rasmussen syndrome, which affects neural and motor capabilities. Andre is only the 9th case of this disease in North America, making treatments both difficult and expensive.
“We hope to see all our friends in the Lynchburg community come out and show their support for young Andre during this charity event, and our goal is to ensure he has all the support he needs,” says Carrie Mattox, founder and executive director of Forest Hill Insurance Agency.
Mattox and her team are working to promote the charity event throughout the Lynchburg community utilizing a variety of online outreach programs centered on sharing information over email and social media. Additional publicity is expected after the release of an article slated for publication in “Our Hometown,” a monthly online magazine hosted by Forest Hill Insurance Agency: http://foresthillagency.com/magazines/.
The Forest Hills Insurance team is an active participant in a nationwide charity assistance initiative referred to as “Agents of Change.” Ongoing involvement in this initiative will see Mattox and her team working with even more regional charitable causes on a quarterly basis.
