We might be busy concentrating our efforts on the Light the Lamp for Mikko benefit, but YOU have been keeping the Mini-Sticks for Mikko program going! We received a call from the Defending the Blue Line office indicating that a package had arrived, and in it were three sticks and a very touching note to Mikko! We continue to be amazed by the generosity and support you have shown the Gegens!
It’s been nearly a year since the little guy was diagnosed; a year which has seen surgeries, a series of chemo-therapy treatments, a stem cell transplant, and several extremely painful anti-body therapy treatments (only one more of those left)! Thank you all so much for mixing in a little smile through all of that!
Here is a Hastings Star Gazette article that talks about the benefit, and some of the other events that the Gegens have participated in. Check it out if you get a chance!
