The Gist family is asking for your support in our battle to fight cancer. Our family has been victimized by this disease several times, most recently with the loss of my father last year. Cancer is an awful disease and can be devastating to a family but it seems most cruel when a child has to fight this battle. This is why we have joined with a group of our friends to raise and donate over $20,000 to pediatric cancer research.
You may be asking why the event is titled "Jam Cancer in the Kan" . The culminating activity of the fund raiser is a Kan Jam Tournament in October. Kan Jam is the frisbee tailgate game and Tia and I will compete against other teams to help "Jam Cancer in the Kan". The campaign also features a lemonade sale by our kids and a 50/50 all with one goal of supporting pediatric cancer research.
So if you are able please make a donation or reach out if you are interested in getting involved.
Pat, Tia, Olivia and Jimmy.
