Sarah and Mark Gonzales are a happily married couple who live in Castle Rock, Colorado. They have a beautiful daughter, Briana, who is 21 months old! Both Gonzales' are serving in our military as reserve soldiers and recently, Mark, has returned from a tour in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, upon his return, they discovered Bree has cancer, Pilocytic Astrocytoma: A very common type of brain tumor but they are generally benign (non-cancerous); Bree's is cancerous and inoperable. The only option is a radiation and chemotherapy regimen. This course of treatment will be very difficult for Bree and extremely taxing on the family, mentally, physically, and emotionally.

On September 21st, 2013, we will be hosting a Silent Auction at the Tailgate Tavern and Grill for the Gonazales family. A new charity, "Cops Helping Soldiers," has offered to assist with the auction. "The Tailgate Tavern and Grill," have offered up the space and services to accommodate this event. Please come by the Tailgate tavern and grill on September 21st, at 5pm for great music, great food, silent auction items and to help this wonderful family out. If you cannot make it, please donate to this account online at http://www.gofundme.com/3vc8kk

Thank You!

Kindest regards,

Laughing is the best medicine. Keep your chin up and try to laugh as often and loud as possible. Stay strong, Bree!
