    Couldn’t listen live but listened when I could and want to give Dick and the people at American Digger a huge pat on the back for organizing and hosting the benifit. Best wishes to the MacIntyres !!!

  3. Woohoo! Was fun. Glad to hear he is on the path to recovery. I dedicate my donation in the name of my mother-in-law Joyce Perkit who passed this year from cancer. Every day is a blessed day!

    I think Ken said at the beginning of the broadcast that his chemo treatments were paid up through January 2015 or 16! Not just through this January! Such a wonderful cause and fantastic turn out (even if I didn’t win anything 😜)!

    • No, I think it’s January of 2014. We raised a lot of money but not that much, and thankfully I don’t think Ken will need chemo that long. Thank you so much for contributing….appreciate you.

      • Lisa MacIntyre

        Yes, 2014. With that part, the most important part, paid, Ken said he feels like a ton of weight has been lifted. He can now focus on healing and beating this crap! (Excuse me, but cancer is crap!) The scariest thing in the world is knowing there is a treatment that may save your life but also knowing that without money you could be denied that treatment. Our entire family slept much better last night thanks to all of you!

  6. Lisa MacIntyre

    From our family to yours…We can never thank you enough. From Dick Stout who got this thing going and secured many donations, to Anita Cook Holcombe and Butch Holcombe, who jumped immediately on board and tirelessly filled out literally hundreds of tickets, to Jeff Lubbert who sold hundreds of tickets in his part of the country, to every single person who made a donation, no matter how small, we are eternally grateful. When you are having a bad day, or someone is dragging you down, look back on this moment and remember, you helped save a person’s life. For that you can be forever proud. Bless each and every one of you!

  7. Mike Smith

    I might have been a winner of a book last night but I hope and pray the real winner is Ken and his family!
    Thanks to the donors of the prizes! It is great to hear that his treatment is now paid through January because of the efforts of the metal detecting community.

  8. Linda Bennett

    Being a winner of a prize is nice but it pales in comparison to what Ken and his family are going through. I am glad that so many people came forward for a family that many knew of only through your blog Dick.
