Frank Lyman was tragically killed this summer when hit head-on by a driver who had crossed the median into his lane. His wife Keira and youngest daughter, Carys, both miraculously survived after spending many days in critical condition, but have a long road to recovery ahead of them. She and her three young children have not only lost their husband and father, but also their provider. Whatever you can contribute to help the lives of these kids and their incredible mother in their lives ahead, including sending these kids to college, would be most welcome. 

If his and my situations had been reversed, I know that Frank would have done something grand and successful to help support my family. I am hoping to do what little I can, and to that end, I will be running a 50 kilometer trail race on Sept. 20th in his honor. I registered for this race the night before Frank was killed, and learned of his death on my way home from a training run, so I felt this might be an appropriate way to remember him. Any amount that you feel comfortable contributing here will be put toward The Lyman Children fund. Your name will be written on my race shirt, and I will give it to Frank and Keira's children at an appropriate time. 

Also, I would like to offer perks from my illustration business (www.hawthorneartwork.com) to those who are able to donate at or above the $50 level. Please see the right side of this page for detailed information. You may use PayPal, credit card, or mail a check made out to: "The Lyman Children" to me at 200 Valencia Street, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019. All money collected will be forwarded on Monday, September 22, 2014. I hope to be very busy drawing this fall, as it will mean we have pooled a large contribution to support Keira, Aislin, Thomas and Carys, in Frank's memory. 

Please share this with as many people as you can, and thank you so much for your help!
