Family Holiday

Hi everyone.  We know this community is great and capable of great things!  That's why we're here to ask for your help.  We're a small alliance family, just under 50 members for two alliances, most of us have been together for longer than a year, some of us for nearly three.  So when one of us is down, we all take a blow, and one of us is, with the big C we all hate.  The news isn't good, but we don't won't dwell on that.  We don't know how much time is left for this part of our family, but we want you to meet them.

J'Lyssa came to us on Christmas of last year, her daughter, Mahnara started in our training alliance, and rose to the ranks of co-leader.  Both have been an integral part of our family.  We all were ecstatic when the news came that the treatments were working and tumor was shrinking.  We were all hurt again when we found out that was no longer the case anymore.

The continued treatments, emergency visits, have all taken their toll on this small family, who already had more than their fair share to deal with.  

And now, now our hearts are heavy with pain, and we've been told, the treatments have been stopped.  There's no more the doctors can do.  All we can do is pray.  

No it's not.  We can do one more thing.  We can pull together, and we can give this family one more great holiday.  Let's pull together, and ease this burden for them.  This news is bad enough, but at this time of the year?  Let's help stuff their turkey and stockings, and give them one last great gift.  Let's show them what it means to be community, family.

I love them, and I love you all, I know we can do this,

Chef Belle and The WatchKeeper Family.
