RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. — A young family in Randolph County was about to get bigger. Stacie Lawrence was expecting her second child when she was hit by a truck driver last month.

Lawrence survived but her baby didn’t make it.

Troopers say the driver blew through a stoplight on U.S. 64 in Asheboro.

For the past month, Lawrence has been recovering at UNC Hospital. She had broken bones, including her pelvis, a ruptured spleen and traumatic brain injuries. On Tuesday, Lawrence was taken to a rehabilitation center in Atlanta.

“They are re-teaching her everything from eating, to her name, to pictures of family and friends and her daughter,” explains Kelli Behrens, one of Lawrence’s friends.

It could take years for Lawrence to fully regain her memory and mobility but her friends wanted to do something now. They are holding a benefit to help Lawrence and her family.

“We really need everyone to pitch in and help this one time. If there was ever a time, this family is the most deserving,” explains Behrens.

The fundraiser will be on Saturday at Ramseur Wesleyan Church on Leonard Park Street. It is $8 per plate for the barbecue dinner and there will also be a raffle.

“Any money that is raised here will help ensure that Stacie does have a home to come home to when she does come home,” explains Behrens.

Lawrence just turned 30 last week and has an 11-month-old daughter.

      From Lexington come down 64 East, towards Raleigh. When you come into Ramseur, you will pass over the bridge, and at the second road (Hwy 22) you will veer off. Then at the first road make a right, on Main St. Go through Down town and make the next right onto Brooklyn Ave. You will see the church and fellowship hall at the top of the hill. That is where we will be. We will have directional signs in Ramseur as well, just follow the arrows. We will be serving from 11-6. Thanks for your support, this is a very deserving family.

    Also, I want everyone to know that we have a fund set up for the Lawrence family at Wells Fargo. If you are unable to come out to the benefit and still would like to give, you can go by any Wells Fargo location and make a deposit into the Stacie B Lawrence Fund account. Thanks for your time, thoughts, prayers, and donations.

    Nobody said this family is MORE deserving. They simply care enough to try to help them. You have the choice of helping this family or any other family in need or not help at all. It is sad to me that you would even ask that question.
