Thank you so much for participating and supporting the Dara Hatcher Foundation fundraisers in Bend, Eugene and Springfield Your many acts of kindness and generosity to my family, Dante and me will long be remembered. We are so humbled. I can't begin to tell you how relieved I am to be able to afford the co-pays at medical appointments, to pay our rent and utilities and to take care of Dante. As many of you know, I have been home from the hospital for three weeks recovering from several surgeries. My family is still in Bend helping Dante and me with daily living needs. I am feeling a little better each day and am getting much needed healing rest. The next phase of my treatment will be radiation beginning April 17th. I have an excellent oncology team and am looking forward to putting cancer in my past. Dante and I send each of you our most sincere appreciation for all you've done for us. We want you to know that you have lifted our spirits and reminded us of the goodness that surrounds us.

Hi Dave, this is Jessica LaMere. I wanted to Thank You again so much for helping me out. All of you guys were great. Ranae told me you guys were the one's who helped out Shane and I really wanted to take my business to you guys just for the fact that you all helped and supported Shane. If I ever need anything else I will be back for sure. I really wish there were a lot more people in the world that would care enough to help people out that are in a terrible situation as we are. I cannot thank you guys enough. My son's site is: www.caringbridge.org/visit/johngrable and it has a lot more info about John's cancer, my son Joey's heart defect, and also about my son Marshall who passed away from SIDS in 2001.
Thank You so much,
Thank you for supporting the 2012 Great Drake Park Duck Race! Attractive prizes like yours help sell tickets. Without your support, the race wouldn't have near the impact it does today. This year we surpassed the milestone of $1,000,000 donated to charities through the life of the duck race. Thanks again!
