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%!
