We at The Rochester Voice have already pledged a portion of our June profits to benefit a former Lebanon girl's quest to get a new prosthesis to help her walk more comfortably.

Destiny Phaneuf was just 13 when she accidentally fell asleep on the railroad tracks near the trestle that runs over Milton Three Ponds and was struck and dragged 182 feet.

She lost much of her left leg, just below the knee.

Now, after 10 years of recovery and rehab, she is in need of a new prosthetic that has an ankle function, so she can walk uphill or upstairs without pain and discomfort.

This new prosthetic will cost upwards of $60,000.

Her gofundmepage at has only raised a little over $300 since it was put up about a week ago shortly after a two-part series in The Rochester Voice on how this horrible accident has taken a physical and emotional toll on her young life.

The Rochester Voice is not only pledging a portion of its June advertising profits. It's also going to give a free annual subscription valued at $50 to anyone who pledges $50 or more on her gofundme page.

Destiny works for a living, but she can't work the hours she'd like due to the pain she endures every day.

And insurance won't cover a new prosthesis, which is why she's asking for our help now.

Please donate today, and if you donate $50 or more, make sure you email and let us know so we can give you a free year's subscription.
