DODGE CENTER, Minn. (KTTC) - It has been one month since 17-year-old Harmony Henderson's life was changed forever. A car accident turned her and her family's life upside down. But now community members are there to support them.
One word used to describe Harmony Henderson is "strength."
"Harmony always had a spark in her eye, always tough, strong, sassy," says Kyla De Leon, a family friend. "A fun girl to be around, she always just brought a ton of energy to the room. "
And it's that strength that has her fighting against the odds after a car accident nearly took her life.
Yet within tragedy comes unity, shown off in full force in Dodge Center.
"I think it's great to show the family support of the communities around here," explains De Leon. "Show them the support we all have for them, not just in prayer and faith in having her get through this, but being here and donating our time and money."
Hope for Harmony is both the name of the event and the message that is being delivered.
A silent auction, fun new hair styles, henna tattoos and a dance were put together to help Harmony and her family.
"It's been a wonderful gathering of people," says Jessica Quimby, one of Harmony's aunts.
Jennifer Ellingson, another aunt says that, "It's the benefit of living in a small town and having known everybody."
The love for Harmony could be felt from one end of the room to the other, and none felt it better than those who knew Harmony the best.
"Well, it's been a big struggle," shares Lexi Bryngelson, Harmony's younger sister, "but things are getting better and we've all been doing well. She's always been there to support me and now I think it's our time to support her."
Strength is what Harmony brings to those around her, and the hope and love the community brings is what is making Harmony and her family even stronger.
