THIS IS THE OFFICIAL FUNDRAISING PAGE FOR ASHLEY LYON AND FAMILY. Be aware of copycats, always verify that any sites you make a donation to is legit.

 First of all I would like to thank you in advance for helping the Lyon family during a desperate time please help us to reach out to friends and family (and unexpected strangers) for help.


As many of you know Ashley, 16 years old, is a beautiful young teen who fell prey of a violent sex offender in Valrico, Florida. Ashley was residing in with her family at the time.

The 41 year old sex offender was the father of one of her friends who lived in her subdivision. The sex offender lived in Plant City with his mom.

Ashley was missing for 8 days, she suffered numerous stabbings while in the vehicle from the sex offender as he fled from law enforcement on a dangerous 40 mile chase in Louisiana. The chase ended after the cops threw spike strips down on the highway. 

He preyed on Ashley until he got her. She was reported missing on June 11th. The sex offender attempted suicide and begged cops to shoot him once his vehicle stopped.

Ashley has been in the hospital with numerous serious injuries, fighting everyday with her amazing mom by her side. Ashley's mom has been sleeping at the hospital every night without transportation and does not know anyone in the area. The hospital is doing a great job providing the hospitality to her.

Ashley's mom has been in Louisiana since June 19th and will remain with her daughter until she is brought home. They are almost 800 miles from home. Arrangements are being made to get Ashley to a hospital closer to home so the family can be together during this time.

Ashley remains in stable but serious condition. Her injuries included 10 stabbings throughout her upper torso. She has suffered from numerous complications. She is a fighter and needs our prayers.

The sex offender will be charged in Hillsborough County with interference with child custody, attempted unlawful sexual activity with certain minors and traveling to meet a minor. Authorities in Lafayette will also charge him with attempted murder.

The Lyon's family have a heavy and long journey ahead of them. This page is to raise funds for the family as they face the many struggles and unexpected expenses.

Not only medical (after insurance), traveling expenses but also funds to help them along the way as they prepare for trial in 2 states, counseling, etc. This road is going to be long and stressful, let's try to ease the stress and help.

No one should have to endure this! We as a team can help this family through their recovery of such a horrible crime.

Please help even if you can only afford a dollar, it all adds up.

Thank you for your help.
