As some of you know, this summer I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. My wife has started a Relay for Life team in my honor. Our children and their friends have been actively involved with raising money for this cause by selling bracelets and window art, as well as other things. The doctors told us that there would be a chance that I would need a blood transfusion if the chemo doesn't work. After finding out this news, a few of my friends decided to put together a blood drive to be ready if the need arives. We will be holding a blood drive and bake sale in Millerstown, Pa on Sunday, November 3rd from 9am-2pm at the Millerstown Recreation Building. All procedes from the bake sale will go to the American Cancer Society. We will also be holding a Spaghetti Dinner March 1st, 2014 at the Newport Family Center.

That is great! Do I understand correctly that the bake sale is the day of the blood drive? Is there anything Bill and I can do to help you out at all?

Yes, you are correct that the bake sale is the same time as the blood drive. We will not turn down anyone wanting to help or donate anything. Any help is greatly appreciated.

As you know we are only a few miles away just up the road. Please know we are available for whatever you need, at any time, not just with this project. But do let us know what we can do to help out. I can certainly bake and will, but do let us know what else you need. I will be at your beckoned call. I know Bill will as well now that he is doing and feeling better himself.

Glad to hear he is doing better. Are you still going to Buttonwood the last weekend in October? We should know more of what is needed for this then. I know my father in law was planning on making a kettle of soup for it and grilling hot dogs, but not sure what else yet. We truely appreciate the support.

I have shared with the people that were at Buttonwood over the weekend, but for those that weren't, on my last PET Scan, there was no signs of the cancer anymore. I will still be getting chemo until right before Christmas and follow-ups after that, but for now the chemo has worked.

That being said, there is still a huge need for others for the blood that we are trying to get as many people to donate blood with our blood drive this Sunday in Millerstown, PA. We will be holding the blood drive from 9am-2pm at the Millerstown Recreation Building (Right next to the the community pool off the exit).

We will also be holding a bake sale at the blood drive to raise money for our Relay for Life team. We will be having homemade soups (Chicken Corn, Chicken Noodle, Chili, Vegetable, and Ham and Bean), Hot Dogs and Sausages, Beef BBQ, Walking Tacos, Nachos with Cheese, baked goods and more.

Please come support these two good causes if you can.

Hope you are feeling better better Happy, we missed you yesterday. We had 68 people attempt to donate, approximately 3 times what the blood bank expected. We also raised about $1800 in bake sale/soup sale money for our Relay for Life team. Thank you to all that helped with the success.
