Friends of Beach family raise funds for medical bills

Friends of Stormie Beach, a Hayden teen seriously injured in a car accident June 20, are raising funds to help pay her medical costs.

The 16-year-old girl was airlifted to St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction and was in intensive care for more than a week. She was upgraded to fair condition this week.

The car she was riding in was not insured, and Medicaid will not cover all the medical expenses.

Her brother, Chase Beach, also was in the accident. He was released from the hospital last week. Their mother, Libby Beach, is a single parent. Donations can be made to the Libby Beach Fund at any First National Bank of the Rockies branch.
