Thank you to Victoria Hansen and Dave MacQueen for sharing Mary Ashley’s story and trying to find her a matching donor. Thank you to Dr. Twombley and Nurse Lisa at DCI for your care each day, and to Howard and Jan Kirk, Ken and Marge McDugal, and Bruce Klien of Hilton Head Auto for the donation of the golf cart, batteries, repairs, and special delivery service to brighten her days 🙂 Thank you to the many people who have been and are trying to test for her as well. May God bless you all!

From Jan Kirk: This was a special day and I believe it brought a little extra joy into Mary Ashley’s life. The two key principles who were responsible in making all of this happen are Ken and Marge McDougal of Hilton Head, South Carolina. Ken suffered a serious stroke last year and was rushed to MUSC where he received incredible care and excellent rehab at Roper Hospital. He is still making a progressive recovery but has physical limitations on the left side of his body. They were passionate about offering their golf cart to Mary Ashley! That golf cart was Ken’s baby! He was such an avid, excellent golfer. Bruce Klein, general manager of H and H Auto Body in Hilton Head, South Carolina, provided all the detail work, new batteries, personalization, and transportation of the cart up to Charleston. Without these very special and generous people, the golf cart would never have happened.


Thank you so much to Ken and Marge McDugal for their kindness and generosity!
