A great big thank you to the Way Out Women and Friends, a group that raises funds through an annual snowmachine ride to help cancer patients in our community.
I was awarded a grant from money raised by WOW to help cover the costs of cancer treatment that are not covered by insurance. Since so many people helped to raise this money, I didn’t know the best way to thank them all personally. I am hoping they will read this letter and know how much their gift means to me. Not just the money, which will be a big help, but the fact that so many people I don’t know were willing to raise these funds and make them available.
A diagnosis of cancer is shocking and traumatic, but the outpouring of love and help that this community has offered has been a blessing I never expected. If you are one of the group of people who rode in last years WOW ride, or pledged money to support a rider, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I can tell you from personal experience how much good this group is doing right here in our home town.
