Local family sets up foundation in daughter's memory

Charlotte Guedry

The family of 14 year old Brittni Griffin has set up a foundation to help cover the costs of her medical bills and her funeral.

Griffin was with family members in Mississippi on a camping trip, when she became ill. After turning severe, she was air lifted to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital in Baton Rouge. The family now faces waiting up to six weeks to find out the reasons for her death.

Anyone interested in donating to the fund is asked to stop into any Whitney Bank location.

Once immediate costs are recouped, the family will donate any remaining funds to the St. Amant High School Band, the family church, and her local soccer team.
