A GOOD FRIEND IS ONCE AGAIN FACING TOUGH TIMES
Back in October of last year we (American Digger magazine and I), initiated a benefit effort/drawing for Ken MacIntyre, son of archaeologist Lisa MacIntyre. Ken was diagnosed with cancer and facing a series of chemotherapy treatments, without any adequate insurance or monies to cover them. Thanks to the manufacturers, distributors, dealers, magazines and all of you, we were able to raise $7,200, which paid for all of Ken’s treatments. Shortly thereafter Ken was declared cancer free!
Unfortunately that’s not the case now….
Ken’s cancer has returned and it looks like he will be going through an even more complicated and time-consuming set of procedures this time around, including the potential for extended stays in the hospital. The family’s insurance situation is somewhat better this time around but I know he could use some cheer. Please, when you have a moment or two send along your best wishes, thoughts, prayers, good vibes, a card, whatever. I know he and the family will appreciate it.
