As lifelong Alaskans, we are thankful to be a part of such a caring community. Recently our brother-in-law, Russell McLaren, was diagnosed with having cancer of the brain.
As a family member you try to come up with something you can do to be of help. The answer to this was solved by the generous support of our family, friends and community members. A fund-raiser was organized and held May 14 at the Soldotna Sports Center. With the help of many friends and family it was a great success.
We want to thank all those who donated time, money and love to make this event a huge success. We are all lucky to live in an area where people care and are willing to give. Many local businesses are asked to donate to the community time and time again, however, I have never been turned away without an offer to help and for this I am grateful to live in such a place.
Thank you to all who helped with this fund-raiser.
Teri and David Birchfield
