A Big Thank You

We want to thank everyone for their amazing support of Dominic, Harrison and our families. It is truly overwhelming. Haircuts for Hope raised another $1600 and the home health agency that oversees Dominic is fundraising as well.

We want to wish Jeff Nobel, Dominic's speech therapist's father, our thoughts and prayers and luck as he is heading to Germany to undergo this procedure as well. Please say a prayer for him and his family.

The donation letters will be going out this week to anyone who contributed by check. The fund wants to close out the accounting by the end of the month and get the money wired to the Xcell Center. Again, we are so grateful to everyone for the support. With all the well wishes and prayers, we are hopeful for a positive outcome. We will keep you posted throughout the summer and then when we get to Germany in August.

5k run and pasta dinner a huge success!!!

On Saturday, May 23rd, the Cottonwood Community held a 5k fun run for Dominic and Harrison. Over 300 people came out to support the boys and over $5800 was raised. It was an incredible day of fun and support. Dominic and Harrison had a blast!!! We had so many people come to help and we even ran into some old friends. It is amazing how the word is spreading. Our local Fox station showed up and did a story on the 5:00 and 9:00 news. I'm not sure if this will work, but here is the link to the story, if you have not seen it yet:

Last Friday night, the swim team for our local pool held a pasta dinner to benefit the boys. They served over 300 homemade pasta dinners and raised over $1500. It was an unbelievable night! (Unfortunately Dominic was sick and did not make it).

We are so overwhelmed by this outpouring of support for our families. We do not even know how to begin to say thank you to everyone.
