“In our stores, we believe that our people make a world of difference. We invest in our people so that they can take care of you.” This statement is found on the Payson Market website and it’s more than just empty rhetoric. Just ask Tina Holman. Tina works in their deli department.

In 2006, her daughter, Savannah, was diagnosed with Vanishing White Matter (VWM). VWM is an extremely rare condition that destroys myelin, the brain’s white matter. There is currently no cure for VWM. It is a progressive condition and sufferers can expect an increasing loss of motor skills, loss of vision, epileptic seizures and more. Few sufferers survive more than 5 to 10 years after onset. Payson Market, on behalf of Tina and her daughter, is trying to make a difference.

Throughout the month of July, customers will have the opportunity to purchase a balloon for $1. The balloons will be collected, and on Aug. 6, all balloons will be filled with helium and released. Manager Mike Tippetts envisions a rainbow of color floating through the sky as part of a “Find a Cure for VWM” local fundraising and awareness event. He believes in the Payson community and is confident they will come together to participate in this grand gesture of support for Tina and Savannah.

Payson Market is located at 586 N. Main in Payson. Balloons will be available for purchase until the date of the balloon release. More information on VWM as well as contribution efforts can be found at www.vwmfoundation.org.
