Kains give SUV to Woodford couple facing health crisis
Woodford County Library’s adult services librarian, Emily Saderholm, and
her fiancé received an SUV from Jack Kain Ford last week.
The 2011 Dodge Nitro will provide the couple with reliable
transportation to Indiana University Medical Center, where Saderholm
will receive treatment and a liver transplant. She has been diagnosed
with JAK2 genetic mutation that causes blood clotting issues that
necessitate a transplant, according to a press release from Jack Kain
Ford in Versailles.
Having lost two sisters to a rare liver disease after both were not able
to get transplants, McIntosh’s plea for help to get reliable
transportation “really resonated with us,” said Bob Kain, general
manager of Jack Kain Ford.
“It’s a very special day, I know for Mike and Emily, and also Jack Kain
Ford,” he said, “that we can help our community and help great people
like this in a time of need.”
He then turned to McIntosh and handed him the keys to the SUV.
McIntosh said his grandmother in Breathitt County always told him the
highest compliment you can give to someone like the Kain family is to
tell them, “They’re good people.”
“They’re amazing people. And it tugs at your heartstrings. A very
emotional time and you’re just awesome folks,” he said.
During an interview after he officially received the keys to the Dodge
Nitro SUV from Jack Kain Ford’s Back Row Joe inventory April 2, McIntosh
told the Sun that he was hoping for a discount on a vehicle, but never
anticipated being given one.
“I was … flabbergasted,” McIntosh said. “… This is beyond awesome.”
During his eight years living here, McIntosh said he’s come to
appreciate this community and people like the Kain family who live here.
