New ministry ramping up

Earlier this year, First United Methodist Church began its Ramps of Love Ministry through which it installs temporary ramps at the homes of illl or injured persons in the community. The ministry sprung up at the perfect time for Trinity Fuller and her family. Fuller was severely injured in the championship game of the region basketball tournament here Feb. 9. She tore all the ligaments in her knee and ruptured the major artery in her leg. She spent over a month in the medical center in Macon, including a week in ICU. She has had nine surgeries with a 10th and final procedure coming up that will finally address the ligament damage. She required a ramp wide enough to navigate in a wheelchair with her injured leg extended which Ramps of Love installed last month. The ministry provides modular aluminum ramps that are easily installed and removed. Ramps are put in place for three months with additional three-month extension available. Only Lamar County residents can receive ramps. Call the church office at 358-1494 for more information. Meanwhile, the Fuller family has been buried under an avalanche of medical bills. An online account has been set up to help the family with medical expenses. To give, visit https://www.gofundme.com/support-the-fullers
