Friday benefit slated for Shelby County Judge Allison Harbison

A Benefit Barbecue, Bake Sale and Raffle will be held for Shelby County Judge Allison Harbison beginning at 11 a.m. Friday, June 7, at Raymond Motor Co., 301 San Augustine Street, Center.

On April 1 Shelby County Judge Allison had a seizure on April 1 and she was transported to Tyler by helicopter and the doctors found a brain bleed, according to Heather Harbison.

She stayed at Christus Mother Frances in Tyler from April 1 to April 15, with most of her hospital stay being spent in ICU. She returned home and was making good progress when she had another seizure in April 26, Heather said.

She was again transported by helicopter to Tyler and the doctors discovered an aneurysm. Because of the size and type of aneurysm the doctors transferred her to UT Southwestern in Dallas on April 27.

On April 28 the doctors were able to repair the aneurysm by placing a pipeline in her brain. As of now she is making steady progress but she is still in ICU in Dallas. Allison and her family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support.
Allison’s grandsons Tucker & Chase want to be a part of the benefit as well, so they are going to have a Lemonade Stand. They are excited to help support their NeNe...some come on out June 7th and get a fresh glass of lemonade to go along with your BBQ!!!
