One last wish
Dear Editor:So many times the people we know or have known fall upon hard times and the people in this community don’t know about it. I want to spread the word about an unfortunate illness that has gripped a family who used to live here, in hopes that this community can give a little life to someone whose life is ending. Stefanie and Mike Levesque have two young daughters, Liz, 6, and Jenna, 4. They now live near Boston. Stefanie has been battling breast cancer, and now it has spread to her liver and lungs. Although she is getting treatment, the second round of cancer has given her a much shorter life expectancy of between 18 months to two years.While Stefanie still has time, courage and strength to enjoy a family vacation, we would like to be able to send her family (ONE LAST WISH) to meet some of her children’s heroes: Cinderella, Snow White, Mickey Mouse, etc., at Disney World in Florida. And it’s not really the magic and wonder for the girls as much as it would bring some much-needed enjoyment to Stefanie’s soul and to create a lasting recordable memory for their family.So we are asking for donations. Any donation will help for sure. If you would like to help in a tax-deductible way, make a check out to Messiah Lutheran Church with the name Stefanie Levesque in the memo section, 1235 Mountain View Drive, Aspen, CO 81611. Stef was a member there until she moved. The church will deposit the funds to the account on your behalf, giving you a tax-deductible donation. Or you can donate directly to Alpine Bank, for the Account of Paula Lamberti, Terri Newland, Stefanie Levesque and Michael Levesque, the routing number for any wire deposits is: 102103407.Thank you for your thoughts, prayers and support. Karen Bromka, Paula Lamberti and Terri NewlandAspen
