Community pulls together for “Paisley”

  • Written by 
Paisley Corbitt Paisley Corbitt

The Jackson County and surrounding areas have come together to aid a four-year old little girl who is battling Neuroblastoma cancer.  Paisley Corbitt is the daughter of James and Tyisha Corbitt.  Her grandparents are Wayne and Gayle Corbitt of Graceville.  

Currently, she has completed two rounds of chemo therapy and is expected to have stem cells harvested at the end of the month prior to starting her third round of chemo.  

This past weekend, Donnie Edenfield held a concealed weapons class at Circle Grill in Graceville.  There was a great turnout by the community with over 40 people attending the class.  All proceeds from the class were donated to Paisley and her family to help offset the enormous bills they are encountering.  Jackson County Tax Collector Mary Carol Murdock gave a brief explanation of how the application process works.  Kelly Register was an integral part of the success of the class.  The four-class covered weapon safety, use of force, laws regarding carrying a concealed weapon, as well as tips for staying safe.

Donations can be made at People’s Bank of Graceville, First Federal Bank in Graceville, Wells Fargo, and Regions Bank.  Also, donations can be dropped off at Circle Grill in Graceville.

Circle Grill along with Graceville Lions Club, Graceville United Methodist Church, and Cook’s Drug store are hosting a fish fry benefit on Sunday February 26 at Circle Grill.  All proceeds will go to Paisley and her family.  Plates are $10 each and can be picked up from 11-1:30 on Sunday.

The family is so appreciative of the communities’ outreach and support!
