    Clarification-The story above reads: The 44 year old resident, identified as Donna Barton… It should read The 44 year old resident, identified as Tammy Barton… Sorry if there was any confusion, when I replied to your email I thought you had corrected her name in the article, but when I returned to your post it wasn’t that is why I posted the second comment. Her daughter has opened a donation account at 1st Convenience Bank which is also 1st Nation Bank and it is under her name “Tammy Barton”, that’s why it is so important. People are not wanting to donate because of the name discrepency. It would also be greatly appreciated if you could help spread the word about the donations being needed as well. An update on Tammy: They took her off life support this morning, she’s talking and does remember what happened.
