Benefit concert to help injured student
Submitted By FUSS
A fundraising benefit concert will be held on behalf of Cole Lewis, a senior at Mission San Jose High School, who was severely injured in a car accident on the morning of November 17, 2012.
The Virtuoso International Flute Ensemble (VIFE) will perform at 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 1, at Centerville Presbyterian Church, 4360 Central Ave., Fremont. Featured flute performances will be by Amir Farsi (Flute Concerto in G Major by Mozart) and Patrick Mu and Vanessa Yeh (Concerto for Two Flutes in C Major by Vivaldi).
Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated.
Cole, as well as his sister Calyne were both passengers in the car. Even though Cole has lost mobility of his hands and feet and is confined to wheelchair right now, he is working hard to gain full recovery, and studying so that he can graduate with his class in 2013. Cole aspires to continue his study at the local college with a major in perhaps psychology, counseling or sports therapy.
For Cole to have a chance to have full mobility, he needs to get spinal cord injury functional integrated therapy (SCI-FIT). This costs about $2,000 per month for the therapy.
