I was diagnosed with brain cancer January 1, 2010. My tumor is the highest grade of 4 and is very aggressive. There are actually 2 types of tumors in the infected area. I have had 2 surgeries, radiation, on going chemo and am going to start another round of radiation soon. This experience has changed my life and helped me to realize how important life is and how truly blessed I really am. God has worked many miracles in me already and continues every day. I had the privilege of my community helping financial contribute to my family to help the many changes and relocation we had to make. With all that has been done for me I only feel it right for me to give back. I want to pass God’s blessings to me on to others.
I am now putting together a fundraiser of my own to help others in need and fighting the daily cancer battle. This fundraiser is to help with daily needs such as rent, food and utilities, things not covered by insurance or other means. I found this area lacking for those who really need it and am trying to start my own foundation to fill in the gap. The fundraiser I am putting together will do just that.
The event itself is going to be a spaghetti cooking contest for local business/restaurant chefs. Each chef will prepare their sauce and present it for the guests at the event. We will be doing a silent auction for each chef, silent auction and raffles to help also. This event could change lives and will impact our community greatly. Please take the time to consider any donations to send. Any and all are greatly appreciated.
Thank you for the support,
Sadly Heidi passed away 3 weeks after the inaugural Spaghetti Dinner event.
Those of us involved in the foundation are dedicated to continuing Heidi's vision and providing assistance to our local Lake Havasu residents and their families in this most difficult battle.
