This post is particularly for my friends in Central Ohio.
Shortly before I left for college, the Williams family moved into my church group (Pickerington Ward, for those in the area). I’ve gotten to know their daughter Alli better over the past year or two, as she and I have sons close in age and many mutual friends.
Last week I learned that the family patriarch, Jay, was just diagnosed with advanced colon cancer. It has spread to his abdominal muscle, liver, and one of his lungs. Jay and his wife, Susan, and are in the process of moving to Utah and he’ll be receiving treatment there. But, as many of you know, chemotherapy and surgery are not cheap. I’m blogging today to let those of you locals know about a charity event being held to raise money to help with the bills.
When: Friday, April 23rd
Time: 5:30 – 8:00 pm
Address: 642 Theron Drive, Pickerington, 43147
There will a hot dog cookout, bake sale, inflatable play area for the kids, and a silent auction full of all kinds of great prizes (seriously…I’ve heard some of the stuff that’s being donated and it’s awesome!). So, if you’re looking for something fun to do with your family next Friday night, please consider stopping by the benefit!
