From our friends at the State Highway Patrol Federal Credit Union

Trooper Kyle Baxter, Unit 0727 – Crash Reconstruction Findlay District, was diagnosed with a mass in his brain in early February. Kyle had surgery on February 26th to remove the mass. Due to some complications, doctors were unable to remove the entire mass. Kyle has been making great progress but still has a long road to recovery. He was released to come home on March 3 and will continue to recover at home. The family will have a lot of unexpected expenses due to this procedure and the ongoing care. The family has a bank account at the Ohio State Highway Patrol Federal Credit Union. If you wish to help out, you can make a donation by contacting the credit union and let them know you want to make a donation in Tiffani Baxter’s name. Please continue to keep the Baxter family in your thoughts and prayers. Ohio State Highway Patrol Federal Credit Union 1900 Polaris Pkwy # 400, Columbus, Ohio 43240 (614) 431-0784 or (800) 282-3006.
