Appreciates benefit

To the editor:

On Aug. 2, my awesome friends and family organized and gathered for a benefit at Rides Bar and Grill in Fort Dodge, to help me with medical bills accrued from treatments to combat non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the benefit, and all the support that has been shown to my daughter (Sophie) and me since November, 2013 when I was diagnosed. The saying “It takes a village to raise a child” is especially true in my case, as I have so many people who have stepped in to help my family.

Sophie and I are forever grateful.
