‘Incredible’ event shows support


We would like to express our gratitude for the outpouring of love and support we received at the recent benefit held in my honor.

We would like to specifically thank The East Dunkirk Ladies Auxiliary, The East Dunkirk Fire Department, The Chautauqua County Fire Police, and all of the volunteers for hosting such and incredible event. I was amazed at how the community rallied to support me by making basket raffle donations, cheer for the wheelbarrow of cheer, donations to “fill the boot,” and for the purchasing of the many Chicken BBQ dinners. My husband Carl and I are truly humbled by all of your love and support and continued support as I journey on to get my “new lungs!”

Words can not nearly express how much we appreciate all of this and want to thank each and everyone who has reached out and are supporting us on my transplant journey.
