Kudos for supporting girl with cancer

We have to express a huge thank you to Randy Casto of Renegade Classics, and Big Diamond Tattoo and Reggie Hall for the wonderful poker run they put on for our daughter, Meghan. Thanks to these people’s efforts and the tremendous support from the community, we have been able to donate our full energy to helping Meghan fight this horrible disease called cancer. Thanks also to Bobby G Productions and John Zuerflueh for all of their help in the last year.

This community has been absolutely amazing in its support of one of its own. Meghan gets so much love and encouragement when we are out and about, doors are opened for her and people are always giving her a big smile. We are so lucky to live here in Grass Valley!

We also owe a ton of thanks to Walt Abbey at A&A Physical Therapy for getting her back on her feet. Meghan is on crutches and we hope to have her on a cane and then without any assistance in the near future. Walt gives her the help she needs and always shares a joke or two to make her smile, even when it hurts.

Rose Cappacolli was instrumental in helping Meghan stay up to speed with her fifth-grade class. Meghan was able to earn almost all A’s even while doing treatment with this wonderful woman’s help.

The Penn Valley Lions Club very thoughtfully provided Meghan’s little sister, Sarah, with a brand-new bike and added so much joy to her life. Thank you.

We could go on and on, that is the community we live in. We are so grateful to the many people and merchants that have helped so much over and over again, we can’t begin to thank you enough.

Meghan’s prognosis is good, she has anywhere from two to five more surgeries to go on her leg and she will be tested regularly to make sure the cancer doesn’t come back. But for now, she is in remission and we will just be thankful for that.
