Come See Me at the Spaghetti Feed and Silent Auction

Category: Fundraisers – Melenie – 9:26 pm

Just in case you haven’t yet gotten the word, my friends and family are having a Spaghetti Feed and Silent Auction for me! And guess what? I will even get to be there! And, boy, have I grown and so has my hair! It’s true! I’m not bald anymore! Can you believe it? We never thought I would have hair again 🙂 We are so excited and so many people have worked really hard to put this together and make it a really fun event. Many wonderful companies and people have donated some of the best items to be auctioned off that even I was surprised! I would love to see all of you now that I am feeling better-so many of you I have missed over the last year and a half. Please join us…you won’t want to miss the premier get together of the year!

If you have any friends or family who love spaghetti and fun…feel free to pass this on…the more the merrier!

Love you all,
Kennedy

On Saturday, October 21st, join us from 4pm until 7pm at
Parklane Christian Reformed Church
16001 SE Main Street in Portland
(162nd and Main Street between Division and Stark Streets)

Excellent Food (only $6/person for a full meal!) and
Exciting items to bid for including a

Kennedy Duval was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on 5/9/05 at age 4. Her family originally had no medical insurance but Kennedy was approved to receive benefits from the Oregon Health Plan for 6 months. That assistance was terminated 11/30/05. Although her father had insurance benefits through his employer, they refused to cover any of Kennedy’s cancer related expenses. She started her chemotherapy in May 2005 and will continue treatment until August 2007. On June 1, 2006, Kennedy was approved for benefits from the Oregon Medical Insurance Pool/Regence Blue Cross-Blue Shield. Her medical bills and care expenses are continually overwhelming because of the period of time that she had no medical coverage. An account has been opened in the name of Kennedy B. Duval Contribution Fund at Wells Fargo Bank (12005 SE Division, St, Portland, OR 97266) / Acct. # 2246146969. Donations may be made at any Wells Fargo Bank. The Tax ID Number for the Kennedy B. Duval Contribution Fund is 83-0484895. Any donations to her medical fund would be greatly appreciated. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers!
