Lakeside Baptist Church, located at 447 Dalewood Drive in Salem, will host a pancake breakfast on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 8-10:30 a.m. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door on Saturday or at the church prior to the breakfast.
Proceeds from the event will be be donated to Steven Myers and his family (mom Norma and dad Carlan). On Aug. 13, Steven and his brother Aaron were on Route 311 on their way home to Salem from Craig County when they were in a car accident. Aaron was killed in the crash and Steven sustained serious injuries. (Mark Taylor of the Roanoke Times has more on this story.)
On Oct. 8, he will enter a rehabilitation program as an extension of the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Ga. where he is currently recovering, according to mom Norma Myers.
“It’s a sacrifice being away from home,” says Norma, who will be staying with Steven in Atlanta, “but it’s a small sacrifice for the recovery.”
Steven may participate in the halfway program somewhere from six to eight weeks, according to Norma. Steven’s doctors are shocked and pleased with his progress, she says.
“It’s been two weeks and two days, but it feels like so much longer,” Norma said on Friday. “He’s done so well here.”
