Who We Are
For The Cause
The following message from a thankful parent is one of the many reasons why we do what we do!
To Whom It May Concern:
It is with a warm heart as I express our family's gratitude for your generosity. The gas cards that you provided for our family, definitely helped soften the blow of our devastating news of our son Shane's recurrent Lymphoma. Many trips are made to Tampa General Hospital and not worrying about filling up our gas tank eased our transition into our "new" normal lifestyle.
We drove our super hero two hours for him to attend Camp Boggy Creek for a week. He is a true inspiration, at his young age of 12, who is taking his newest journey with more courage than any other soul on this planet. It is his strength and spirit that moves our family.
Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your gifts and best wishes.
David, Cheryl, Ryan, and Shane Salyer
