The Jarman Family Wins New Roof through ‘No Roof Left Behind’ Program
LYNCHBURG – April 5, 2017 – After thousands of votes were cast, Lynchburg Roofing announced John and Pam Jarman of Lynchburg as the winners of the ‘No Roof Left Behind Program.
The Jarman family has a lot of support from the community. With hundreds of votes, “A Miracle for Hunter’s House” came through to win a brand new roof from Lynchburg Roofing and the No Roof Left Behind program. Hunter Jarman, a student at Heritage High School in Lynchburg, has been through over 20 surgeries and soon will be going through another major surgery at Shriners Children’s Hospital in South Carolina.
“He’s such a trooper,” said his mom, Pam Jarman. “He has such a faith in his doctors, they are like a family to him. He trusts them so much and knows it’s going to be OK.”
Hunter has two older sisters and one older brother. His oldest sister, Brooke, will be having a baby this year; his older Brother, Anthony, and second eldest sister, Kaitlyn, are both about to get married. Kaitlyn is currently a student at Liberty University.
“We are so thankful to those who nominated us and voted for us to get a chance to win this roof,” said his father, John Jarman. “We have been praying for a new roof for a long time and we are blessed that Lynchburg Roofing had this contest and several of our friends nominated us. We were so happy to see we were chosen as a finalist and everyone is working so hard to get us votes.”
Hunter has many medical challenges including severe scoliosis, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Ocular Albinism, and Mitral Valve Prolapse. Part of his previous treatments involved bracing and casting on his back. He will have to go through another major back surgery soon, where they will have to take the current rods out and replace them with new rods and do a spinal fusion.
Brenda Meeks, a staff member at Heritage High School who sees Hunter daily, nominated the Jarman family for the contest.
“Hunter is a remarkable young man. He is my hero; just an inspiration,” said Meeks. “He’s in chronic pain all the time but he’s so upbeat and positive. The Jarmans give back to Shriners Hospital, too. It’s just remarkable what they do, they give so much to people and I thought it would be an awesome thing to do to give back to them.”
Hunter is an ambassador for the Shriners Children’s Hospital in Greenville, SC, and also a Virginia State Champion for Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in 2013. He has a wonderful team of doctors who work together and help him overcome his challenges.
“Hunter’s medical team genuinely cares for him and they are like one big happy family,” said Pam Jarman. “We love to give back by doing toy drives, lemonade stands and fundraisers for both hospitals. We are so thankful for all the support we have been given with everyone voting. Even our doctors here and in SC helped us get votes.”
