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.
-Dara Hatcher and Dante
Dear Sounds Fast, On behalf of all of us at Helping 541, thank you very much for your recent contribution. We are extremely grateful for your generosity. Your contribution came at a crucial time and allowed us to purchase gift cards from clothing stores and food coupons from local establishments to give to these teens that would otherwise have nothing during this past holiday season. Now, thanks to you; there were smiles and spirits uplifted and hope restored that could not have happened without people like you.
