For The Love of Layne!

Updated: Thursday, January 25th, 2018

Big Apple Pizza owner, Scott Van Duzer, wanted the entire family to see the support they have from the community. From the fundraiser, a DJ called the mother and grandmother in the hospital so they could say some words to the crowd.

“If you could see what I’m seeing and what everyone here is seeing, you would be amazed at the amount of support,” the DJ said to the crowd.

“It’s been an inspiration to us and we’re truly overwhelmed by all of the support and the well wishes you’ve been sending to us,” said Leigh Chesney, Layne’s mother.

She also updated everyone on Layne’s condition, saying she’s healing and her prognosis improves daily.

“We were able to hear her speak [Wednesday] for the first time since the accident. She repeatedly said I love you, I love you, I love you. It was just amazing to hear her voice,” Leigh said.

She’s hopeful for more good days to come, knowing, they’ll have plenty of support down a long road to recovery.
