Kathy Borman devotedly follows the ups and downs of a little Georgia tyke tragically injured when a tree limb fell on him at daycare, blamed on the winds from Hurricane Sandy.


When she learned charity Sunshine on a Ranney Day was renovating the Halstead’s home for the brain damaged Tripp Halstead, she wanted to be part of the home reveal and turned to son Mike Borman, who owns Simply Sweet Bakery in Rockwood. He designed a car-themed cake that suited Tripp’s love of the movie “Cars,” and took it to the big reveal party earlier this month.

“We ended up taking the cake into the home at the big reveal and feeding it to the family,” Mike Borman said.
Kathy reads all the updates, such as if Tripp tried to smile, felt bad or struggled in therapy.

“I’ve been following the ups and downs, the good days and bad days. I read it to my husband. I just wanted to do something for him, for the family, because they have been through so much,” Kathy Borman said.
