In Walton County, it would be hard to come across someone who does not know or has not benefited from the impact Cindy Little has had in this community.
And we aren’t just saying that because she is a past recipient of The Tribune’s Community Spirit Award.
Little is often quick to offer a smile when needed, a helping hand if possible and as such it is quite appropriate she is the director of the largest benevolent program in the county, Faith In Serving Humanity – though she will note its success is due in largest part to the volunteers and community that supports it.
But Little finds herself battling a scary health issue. Earlier this year, while gardening, she felt like she might have been suffering a stroke. What it turned out to be was a menengioma, a tumor located at the base of her brain stem. While doctors think it is most likely not cancerous, it is still very scary.
Little said she has benefited from an outpouring of community support since the initial diagnosis, indicative of the impact she has had on Walton County. And we join all of those keeping her in our thoughts and prayers as she prepares for surgery on June 24.
