Since 15-year-old Mikayla Blakeley started having seizures on Saturday, Sept. 7, she has not been able to do many of the things she wants to do.

“She wants to be normal,” said Theresa Blakeley, Mikayla’s mother. “This is all new to us.”

Theresa said Mikayla has been homebound from school since the seizures started, and several of her friends have asked when she’s coming back. She added that Mikayla misses being active and particularly misses archery.

Cheryl Keith and others set up a booth at the 37th Annual Trigg County Country Ham Festival, in front of the Cadiz Comfort Zone, to seek donations for Blakeley’s medical expenses. Keith, who’s known the Blakeley family for at least 10 years, said the Blakeleys are family to her.
