A place to find out where Anne is and how she is feeling. Goal: Make this blog obsolete.

Thank You

Letter sent to the Jamestown Sun:

The illness of our daughter, Anne Dodson, has brought many challenges and struggles.  Throughout it friends and family members have supported us in a variety of ways.  The benefit last Friday, however, stands out for its generosity and community spirit.

We cannot thank enough the event’s organizers and the businesses, organizations, and individuals who donated items for consumption and the silent auction.  We wish space allowed us to name each one of you.

Thanks also goes out to the many people who attended the event.  Anne’s treatment is far from over and every donation helps.

In the end, though, it is not the monetary contributions that stand out, but the spirit of generosity and the very presence of support that uplifted our spirits and, particularly Anne’s.  For that, and all the prayers, we are deeply grateful. Thank you.

Chris and Rosi Dodson
