Bekka’s Story

  • In the early hours of November  24th, a hit-and-run driver struck Bekka and a friend on Grand Avenue.

    Many of you have asked what you can do and the prayers, signing the guest book and words of encouragement has kept the Peterson family strong during this difficult time. A medical expense fund has bet set up for Bekka as her home for now is going to be the hospital and there are no definite answers as to what lies ahead. Your gifts are greatly appreciated and will help the family focus on getting Bekka healthy.

    You can send your contribution to:

    Associated Bank
    5353 Wayzata Blvd
    St. Louis Park, MN 55416
    or checks can be sent to any Associated Bank branch/
    Please make checks payable to: Bekka Peterson Medical Benefit Fund

    Again, we can not thank you enough for all of your support as we wait to see what God has planned.

The Birthday Girl...

We have been very blessed this past year and we are taking the time to CELEBRATE Bekka's birthday today!!  And although there will be a special dinner, some frineds, and cake - today is also another "work day" for Bekka.  She has appointments for both Speech therapy and Physical therapy this morning.

Last week she was at the U of M for some testing and we'll get the results in about a month - so fingers crossed for that; and over the weekend Bekka got extensions put into her hair - so she now looks more like the "pre-accident Bekka" - and we haven't seen that big bright Bekka smile in a while. 

We'll keep you updated with any new progress reports!  Until then - thanks so much for the continued support and prayers!!  :)
