I wanted to thank Z Care for all the great things that is does for this community.  Specifically, I want to thank you for the donation we received in the form of gas cards at Christmas time last year.  Our daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia almost a year ago.  Ever since then her grandparents, who live in Texas, have been trying to find a way to see her to make sure with their own eyes that she is okay and to give her lots of “grandma and grandpa” hugs and kisses.  Due to their own health issues they were not able to make it up here this year so we decided that if Raylin’s health permitted it, we would visit them in Texas at Christmas time.  With the doctor’s okay and the gift of the gas cards, we were able to go to Texas and spend time with them.  It was an awesome vacation for us as it allowed us to take our minds off of all the dr. appointments and clinic trips lately.  It was awesome for Raylin’s grandparents because they finally got to see her in person since her diagnosis and reassure themselves that in the long run she’ll be okay.  For that, I thank you.  Sincerely, 

Nicole Cooksey

I would like to take the time to give you guys a HUGE thank you for your support and giving to the benefit that was held for me on December 10th.  It amazes me how warm and thoughtful of a community we live in!  Your donation helped me get caught up on bills and when i received the letter, it touched my heart.  Thank you again and please give your listeners a big shout out and a big thank you from me personally for being there for me during my trying times.  I have another Dr. appointment on the 4th of January.  A new year and I am hoping this last surgery worked and I can start off the New year in the right way.  Again, thanks so much for your support, generosity, and caring ways.
Much Love and Respect, Tina Trueblood
