Deedy is a nearby neighbor and longtime friend.
I hear from Harold Hubbard, Deedy's partner, that she is beginning to make a recovery from the terrible accident she went through last month-- dragged almost under the wheels of a dump truck which had caught its raised dump section on an electric wire, which wrapped itself around Deedy's leg.
She managed to free herself before she was drawn under the wheels of the truck but suffered injury to the leg. However, it seems that the danger which held all her friends in dread -- that she might lose the leg-- is ameliorating.
She is a very brave woman, whose survival may be attributed in part to her walking every day, rain or shine. I have always admired and had the utmost affection for Deedy, who does so much for her family, her students (at Rochester school) and her friends.
All the help we can offer, we want to offer. I hope others might see this and wish to help Deedy and family (she won't be able to work right away, and Harold has had to take time off from work too).
If anyone wishes to help them,
Deedy Andersson and Harold Hubbard

Financial donations are probably the most helpful. I am fairly sure that everyone in Rochester knows of the situation and are trying to help out as they did during Hurricane Irene and after, one to another.
