ALBION, NY - You have a chance this weekend to help a young lady and her family after a terrible accident.
Ashley Weigele, 17, was in a boating accident that left her paralyzed from the chest down. The life-changing event has left Ashley with limited mobility, not only in her home, but when it comes to getting outside. So her family and friends, led by her former high school guidance counselor, are planning a fund-raiser on Saturday to help.
"We got together and we said, 'Let's do this for Ashley,' " he said. "I don't think we'll have enough to buy a van, obviously, that's quite a bit of money, but we're trying to get as much as we can so, hopefully, they can put some away and maybe use some of it to … help out with their own living conditions."
