On Monday November 7, 2016 Mariette and Lily Freeborn, two sisters in their early 70's were walking home in High Prairie after having supper at Subway. They were startled by a man who demanded their money and treated them like punching bags. Lily suffered a significant blow to the face and Mariette endured several hits to the stomach area. There has been amazing community support for these two sisters as they are on the road to recovery. We have had strangers reaching out wanting to do something to help given the severity of the situation - which is what was prompted us to create this online fundraiser for them. Neither of them drive and have enjoyed walking around town as needed for necessities and for enjoyment. We as family and community, hope nothing but the best in the future for them and realize that some of their usual everyday activities will be difficult in the days ahead. We are very grateful for the support they have had, it has made a big difference for them knowing so many care. Also your kind comments on the page will be shared with them.
