EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2013
Dear PTM Friends,
Abby is the 6 year old daughter of our friend, Dougies and his wife, Tammy. The Fountaine's live in Hartland, Michigan and own their own business, Dougie's Disposal. I met Dougie on Memorial Day 2012 when we participated in the community parade together. Since then, I have grown to respect him with his work-ethic, big smile and always kind words.
In August, I stood in my driveway as Dougie told me about almost losing his daughter to kidney cancer, I fought back tears, wishing I could take the pain away from this little girl.
Since then, she has had surgery and is on chemo treatments at University of Michigan Mott. I can only imagine what the costs are like with transportation and also taking care of their other 3 children.
Now I'm just guessing, but I'm sure Dougie doesn't get FMLA or paid sick days off. And being more burdened by incoming expenses as we all know is stressful enough, let alone having a little girl sick.
If like to offer some relief to this family. On Nov 1st there is a fundraising party is scheduled. I'd love to be able to say, my SUP friends opened thier hearts and wallets...to give what they could.
Please contact me if needed at firstname.lastname@example.org
And thank you for helping Abby!
