I would like to share some valuable information for all of Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Grandmas, Wives, etc., that we love and spend our lives with. One of our club members was recently married and a few months after he married his new bride they found out that she has a extremely rare form of breast cancer called Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Currently there are only a handful of women in the state of Kentucky that are alive and fighting the disease. This cancer has very few symptoms and is not easily detectable via normal breast cancer screenings.
Our club member Reed (F9K9) and his wife, Anita Coyle Wetter, are covered by government retirement health care as he is retired USFS and now works as a special deputy US Marshal in a federal courthouse and their policy doesn’t cover treatment at either of the two facilities in the USA that treat this type of breast cancer. Anita unfortunately found out she had this cancer too late and she is Stage 4 which is terminal. However, she is very optimistic and hopes to be with us for years as opposed to the months that her current doctor has stated.
Anyways, we will be doing a Show-N-Shine Car Show type of thing in London, KY on 9/10/11 with Jeeps, Buggies, Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, RZRs, etc., in an effort to raise money to help her travel to Huston, Texas for treatment. There will be food, music, raffles, etc., and it may be fun to bring the kids out or show a vehicle or motorcycle if you should happen to have one. We are basically hoping people will spare a couple of dollars and make a donation.
We are in need of raffle items as well as general monetary donations so anything is welcome and greatly appreciated.
I have attached a flyer to this email and I hope that everyone can come. For the ones that can’t come but would like to make a donation, you can either give it to me or make one by PayPal at the following address firstname.lastname@example.org
Anita is in the process of setting up a website, www.anitasbattle.com
with more information. Other information can be found on our club's forum thread http://www.kentuckykrawlers.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=6563&p=46678#p46678
