As so many of you already know the Twilight Community lost one of its family and one of our future fans. If not, read the full story about it here. In less then 48 hours Judy Hornberger went from loving mother who was waiting on the birth of her grand daughter to a grieving mother and grandmother. The tragedy seemed to be ripped from story line of Breaking Dawn but unfortunately in real life the tragedy was the reality. Many of us in the Twilight Community had the privilege to meet Bethany and Judy while doing our Twi Pilgrimages. The sadness and sorrow hit us all
Many of us have donated to the Bethany Francis fund to help with the medical bills that Judy and Bethany’s husband Dan are sure to endure while the doctors tried to save Bethany and Baby Natalie. No amount of money will bring Bethany and Natalie back but it will help a family struggling with so much loss to not have to worry about how they are going to pay for all of this. The tragic events have altered their lives forever and as a Community we can come together and support one of our own. If you would spread the story and the link to donate to everyone that you know.
Last but not least, the family of Bethany Francis have created a website called rememberingbethany.com, in honor of Bethany and Baby Natalie. If you knew Bethany, please visit the site and share come of your interactions with her friends and family. We have been blessed to share so many fun and amazing times with one another and I know her family would enjoy hearing from you and about how meeting Bethany affected you.
For me I know just putting a person with a screen name is always great. I remember seeing Bethany and Judy at the Eclipse premiere and they were so excited to be a part of the madness that is the Twilight Fandom. Judy and Bethany were true Twihards and like all of us they were a big part of the Twilight Community, not just Twifans. That is why so many sites and stars have come out to support Judy and Bethany’s family. Thank you to Spunk Ransom, Dairio Twilight, Twilight of France, Twilight Facebook, Fandom Gives Back, Guri Weinburg, Kellan Lutz, Erik Odom, Daniel Cudmore, Charlie Bewley, and many more.
With everyone's support we have collected a total of $4281.00 for the family. Keep it coming TwiFans!
