No Filter: 5-year-old Kycie captures hearts of community; fundraiser planned

ST. GEORGE – In Episode 27 of the “No Filter Show,” co-hosts Paul Ford and Grady Sinclair spend time visiting with family and friends of Kycie Terry, a 5-year-old St. George girl who is at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City recovering from a traumatic brain injury sustained after complications arose related to type 1 diabetes.

Kycie’s story captured the hearts of her neighborhood, the nation and especially the type 1 diabetes community, and stories of similar experiences, well-wishes and messages of support have flooded the fundraising page set up to help the Terry family as well as the Instagram accounts of Kycie’s parents, Josh and Jamie Terry.

      Mesaizacd, REALLYY? What satisfaction do you and your little groupies get from your constantly posting stupid negative comments? If the community wants to do something to help this family, why do you have to make a comment? If your family was in this situation we would all help you in any way we could. I guess I just don’t understand what kind of mind gets pleasure from being so negative and rude all of the time. How much time have you or any or you fellow trolls spent volunteering your time or resources to help your community or neighbors? If you took all of the time you spend on here criticizing and used it to help your community instead of running it down, a lot of good could be accomplished. Try it!!!
