Local businesses are once again rallying around Anakin

12 year old Anakin Fretts, seriously injured in an accident on Texada Island in September,
touched the hearts of many including, recently, the owners of 2 restaurants, 2 farms and the local branch of Martial Arts.

The Marine Inn restaurant is having an all day breakfast from 6:30am to 2:30pm tomorrow with all proceeds going to the Anakin Fretts family. Hatch a Bird Farm and One Tree Farm both offered 20 dozen eggs a piece to the Marine Inn Restaurant. The Complex Concessions offered a 5 lb brick of old chedder cheese.

Anakin and his family has been staying at the Ronald Macdonald house in Vancouver since Anakin was airlifted to the BC Children s hospital. Anakin moved to Sunny Hills Rehabilitation in early December.

Allan and Aubrey Sharp, also both injured in the same accident, spent a few days visiting Anakin this week. Anakin is still on a feeding tube but that may soon be a thing of the past.

The Sharps are happy to report that he can walk up stairs with help, enjoys swimming therapy, paints and is learning sign language.

Anakin, a 6th grader at Ecole du Soleil, the French School, understands both English and French just fine.
