Thank You From Pleasure Island Parrot Heads

We would like to thank the Pleasure Island Parrot Heads, American Legion Post 129, The American Legion Post 129 Ladies Auxiliary and especially everyone who came out to eat and donate to the spaghetti dinner for our son Mark Grant and his family.
A huge thank you goes out to the Meyers family for donating and cooking the spaghetti. As well as the Humphrey's and Papa Murphy's for donating the salad and cheesy bread. All the volunteers that made deserts and helped collect money, serve and anything else we needed. You were all amazing we can't thank you enough.
This is such an wonderful area we call home. With truly great and caring people who always seem to step up in times of need, thank you.
Through everyone's hard work support and donations we have been able to send over our expectations to
Mark and his family. They truly appreciate the help at this time of year.
The three children will be able to have a good Christmas this year in their house with enough heat to get them through the winter.
 A quick update on Mark, he recently had an issue with his port-a-cath breaking and pushing his chemo back a week. That is behind him and he is back on schedule although a week off of the original.
He has rough days around the chemo treatments which is normal. He is able to go back to work on his
off weeks which is big for his self esteem and partial pay that keeps his health insurance effective.
There will be tough times ahead but the prognosis is good once he finishes his treatments in the spring. Please keep Mark and his family in your prayers. 
We do hope to do one more fundraiser after the first of the year to help them get through the remaining months until he is able to go back to work on a full time basis. We will keep you informed.
Thank You
