Romans 5:3-5

"We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems or trials, for we know they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disapointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love." Romans 5:3-5

More Angels.....

Zach's Fund Run 

The genuine concern that our family has received over the past few months continues to overwhelm us. So many unexpected blessings.  I want to tell you about two more "angels" that have blessed us.

Melide Mackee and Rebecca George
These two ladies are busy moms who are very involved in our community. 
 On July 24th 2011
they hosted a fundraising event for Zach.
Zach's Fund Run  5km  2011

We were unaware that this had happened until last week when Mel and Rebecca gave us a beautiful memory book of the event as well as a cheque for the Funds that were raised...$1400.00!!!

I want to share with you the note they wrote to us...

To Tanis , Perry & family,

Melide and I would just like to express our concern for Zach and your family.  We can only imagine what you as parents are going through.  That is why we asked ourselves, "what would we do"?  Our answer: "whatever we had to do to keep our child healthy at any expense"!  We realize the financial burden this must bring and decided to help, even if it is just a little.  So we decided to host a 5km FUND RUN for Zach.  With the help of local businesses we were able to host this event with very little cost.  Zender Ford, Fox Maple Homes & Stony Plain IGA are just a few that deserves big thanks.  As for Melide and I we are just happy to help!
Melide Mackee & Rebecca George

This entire journey has been a very humbling experience.  The love, concern and support we have been given is amazing.  Thank you Mel and Becky.  Thank you to your supportive husbands and families.  It is impossible to adequately express our gratitude.  Thank you so very much. xo

The kids did a 1km Fun Run.....awesome!

We would like to extend our thanks to
 Fox Maple Homes, Zender Ford, Chris Hansen Marketing, Stony Plain IGA, First Avenue Vending Services, Zurich Insurance, Intact Insurance, Drayden Insurance and to everyone who took part in this event.

As a side note
When we sat down with Zach and showed him the album they made and explained to him what these folks were doing to help him, he said "I just can't believe all these people care about me..."
God Bless
