Donations sought for Mumm family
Meals and monetary donations are being sought for the family of Trystan Mumm, a 13-year-old former Oakhurst resident who underwent brain surgery to remove a tumor on Christmas Eve.
Trystan was rushed to a hospital in Hollister Dec. 23 after she complained of a severe headache. She was then airlifted to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto and underwent surgery the nex day.
Trystan’s family, including parents Tiffany, Tyson, and sister Trinity, relocated to Hollister last year over work concerns. Deborah Hough, a family friend who met the Mumms’ daughters through her employment at Gymnastics by Diane in Oakhurst, said Trystan’s operation went well, though pathology tests are underway to determine if it was a benign tumor.
“Docotrs said it was the best result we could have hoped for,” Hough said. “But she’s a young kid and it’s hard on her and her family. They’re asking for prayers as they maneuver through this.”
Hough said because her husband’s business is based in Hollister, they plan to visit the Mumms every Monday and will personally deliver all donations, including money or home-cooked, frozen meals.
Hough said anyone is welcome to call her at (559) 760-9799 and set up a time and place to pick up the donations. A donation site was also created at mealtrain.com/trains/e7qwe2.
