    I will try to make this very short and sweet. In September 2018 our family was struck with pediatric cancer. We found out in the emergency room that my 11-year-old daughter had stage 4 sarcoma cancer. A fairly rare cancer.
    She battled through thick and thin for 14 months of treatment. The first 2-3 weeks was critical.
    It is known for this type of cancer to almost always come back. And we learned last month that it has. She had her first treatment again last week. She had her second last night.
    When her and my wife arrived home this morning they were met with a big box full of goodies. Money, very memorable gifts, a toy for her cats, and a nice stern sweatshirt that she loves. And she could care less about Pinball LOL
    I have been acquaintances with Chris and Melissa Marquette of Cointaker over the years from seeing them at shows. Never great friends, just acquaintances. I say this because this is the type of thing you might expect from your best friends. This came from the heart.
    This wonderful box of joy came from them. And it lit my daughter up. I can’t say enough about them. This goes far beyond the hobby. Thank you Cointaker!
    FYI: 4% of all cancer funding from the federal government goes to pediatric cancer. Only 4%!

    What a lovely thing to do. Amazing people! And I wish your daughter a full recovery. I know this must be hard for you guys, if you ever need a fellow pinhead and fellow dad to talk to or vent to, just PM me.

    That’s amazing! I love this post!
    The absolute best to your little girl, she seems like a fighter. I’m a dad of 2 girls and this hit me right where it counts. I hope everything comes out good and much love to Cointaker!

    Thanks for sharing your story and a big thumbs up to Cointaker. Best wishes for your daughter's health, and for your family as this is difficult on everyone. Cancer sucks!

    Great post and an even better picture, thanks for sharing. It is so awful that your family is going through this battle again. Cancer sucks but when it hits a kid it is so much worse. After all she has gone through and after having just had a treatment she has such a bright smile! It is great to hear how some in our pinball community can be so thoughtful. I know it is often said and the words sometimes sound empty, but I will be keeping you and your daughter in my prayers for strength.

    Awesome picture.

    I am sorry to hear about your daughter. As a dad that hits you hard anytime you hear about cancer. That must be really tough. Love the gift. I have never bought anything from cointaker but they will get some business from me somehow someday.

    All prayers to your daughter and family. I am so glad she pulled through. Life is precious as is family. I lost three children and that puts things in perspective. I am 50 and diagnosed with Parkinson’s and have had it since I was in the navy in 1992.

    Cherish everyday and never go to bed angry and make sure to say I love you every chance you get. Tomorrow is not guaranteed to anyone. Keep playing and enjoy your family.
