Letter: Many thanks

Many thanks

Many, many thank-yous go out to Marleny Koch and friends who donated Thanksgiving dinners with Your Friends for Life for 21 of our cancer families who would not have had a wonderful dinner this year. They were wonderfully received and welcomed.

Thanks to your generosity, we also were able to work with Lift-Up to get our families a Christmas dinner as well this year! We are so thrilled that you helped us assist so many this year in loving memory of Chris and Marleny’s son, William, who passed away from SIDS in October 2010. We are honored to have you partner with us!

Our wonderful donors, volunteers and the Calway Young Cancer Center helped us surpass our goal of assisting 100 cancer families this year. We were able to assist 130 and give holiday dinners to an additional 20 families!

Thanks to those of you who helped purchase our wonderful wisconsin mild cheddar cheese in fun, holiday shapes. We sold 1,000 of them to help us support, nurture and encourage our cancer families from Aspen to Rifle. We will do it again late next fall. Thanks to our honorary “cheese heads” for selling them!

Happy New Year!
