• A benefit for SANDY TYE is scheduled for Feb. 10. Sandy has been a longtime member of Poor Boor Riding Club and resident of Palo Pinto County. She is Grandma Sandy to the kids at the club and most of the big kids, too. Sandy is the type of person who will help anyone she can, and she has loaned her horse to people to ride at the playday so they can enjoy horses as much as she does. Sandy has served as an officer of the club for many years and does everything she can to help the club continue.
Sandy has become ill with infections in both knees after knee replacement surgeries. The infections have spread to other areas. While the doctors at PPGH are working to get the infections under control, Sandy will have a long road to recovery. She has mounting medical bills and she is looking at months of hospitalization and rehab to recover.
