Our friends Carla and Lance Hoffman, who were badly burned in November during the Tea Fire in Santa Barbara County, Calif., were released from the hospital on Wednesday.
According to an update on the Lance and Carla Fund website, the two made Olive Garden their first stop. “They were celebrating and taking in a myriad of smells and sensations after two months of hospitalization,” writes Lance’s mother Linda Hoffman. “It was an exciting time!”
They will stay with Lance’s grandmother in La Habra so they can continue physical and occupational therapies with burn specialists at UC Irvine Medical Center.
In related news, the eBay auction of the original artwork generously donated by Walt Simonson ended today with a winning bid of $5,799. We at Robot 6 are floored by the outcome, and extremely grateful to Mr. Simonson.
The proceeds from that, and our other auctions, will directly benefit Carla and Lance.
