An update of Dessie’s story…..

So it’s been a while since I’ve updated everyone.  Dessie just returned to Ethiopia where he will receive additional chemo treatments.  He was able to purchase the medication (they don’t have it in Ethiopia) and bring it from Bangkok to Ethiopia.  The doctors will be able to administer the next rounds of chemo for him.

I know that Marleen had a successful fundraiser with helicopter rides.  I believe the total was $3,500 USD, but I’m not completely certain of that.

Today I wired $1,000 to help pay for the living expenses and doctor’s fees.  This was money that was raised in 2 special events.  My daughter, Jordan, baked cupcakes – 200 in all.  I “sold” them at my Poulsbo North Kitsap Rotary club meeting a week ago and yesterday did the same at New Life church on Bainbridge Island.  What an amazing group of Rotarians AND New Life members!  I can’t say thank you enough.  Thank you Jordan too!!  The cupcakes were beautiful AND delicious.  Image
