For Dale's Benefit

As some of you know, my brother-in-law found out he had esophageal cancer in December of 2009.  He then had radiation and chemotherapy which was followed by an esophajectomy.  After surgery more chemo followed.  Through it all he continued to hold down his full time job even if that meant coming home each day for a nap and being exhausted at the end of every day.  Unfortunately he had to relinquish his job the end of January.  So his family, our family, and some of his friends and co-workers have quickly put together a benefit to raise money to help with medical and living expenses now that they are without Dale's income.  You can check out the blog I developed for more information.

This has been a hard year and a half and we have some hard times ahead too.  If you are a praying person please keep my sister, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew in your prayers.
