Brigid's Service Trip Donation

Later this month, Brigid Bush will partner with Global Volunteer Network and the Bamboo Project for a volunteer trip to two rural villages in Thailand and Cambodia.

In Cambodia, Brigid will work on a clean water project in a rural village outside of Siem Reap and learn about the challenges of living without such everyday luxuries. She'll also be working and living in a village near Surin, Thailand to help build sustainable projects, support the farming community, and (bonus!) learn Thai cooking, farming, and elephant care taking with a host family.

PAIGE'S BATTLE WITH CANCER

Paige Graham just turned 29 and has cancer. Here's her story:

"I have three of the most beautiful, kind, loving little girls you could ever meet and a husband who is so amazing to all of us! I was just recently diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. The vey same disease my 5 siblings and I lost our mother to 19 years ago. It was actually the anniversary of her death when I got my port put in to start receiving my chemo treatments. Ever since losing my momma, I have been terrified of going through the same thing. Breast cancer has always been my worst nightmare, and now it is my reality. I am scared to death of anything taking me from my girls this early. They are only 1, 4 and 12. I am giving this fight everything I have, as I have entirely too much to live for. Giving up is NOT an option! I served as Active Duty in the United States Air Force for 9 years as a Medical Laboratory Technician. Although I loved my job, it was not what I would consider my calling. So I got out of the military last May to go to school full time for social work. After about 7 months of just doing school and spending extra time with my two youngest, I decided it was time to go back to work to bring in more income for my family as we desperately needed it. My first week of the job, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My bosses don't know me from anyone else yet are still working with me and allowing me to keep my job. They understand that I will have to miss a lot of work with the chemo treatments and then the double mastectomy and radiation to follow. I have already missed so much work, and I just started this job. I know I have an excuse, but I am feeling awful about it. My closest family and friends are telling me not to worry about work and out all of my energy into fighting this cancer. But I also have a family to think about. I can't put all of the financial burden on my husband. I appreciate you taking the time to read my story. My siblings and I have already been through so much in our lives. It's not fair that we have to go through this cancer crap again! But I know, God does not give us anything we cannot handle. We can get through this one day at a time! We just have to stay positive, and lean on each other for support!! I have had an overwhelming amount of support flowing in from all over the place and it is absolutely heartwarming."

ONALASKA'S CHRIS ASK DONATION

Zcare is proud to help our friends and neighbors in the community and was recently able to donate to Onalaska's Chris Ask. Chris has been a longtime assistant coach for boys basketball. Maggie Ask's Dad, Peter, is a retired principal of OHS and Maggie used to be heavily involved with the youth programs at Onalaska Park and Rec.

The condition Chris deals with (AVM), is a disease affecting the way blood travels from his heart through his arteries and capillaries and then returning through his veins. Blood flowing abnormally damages the blood vessels causing them to bulge and get twisted. If the AVM continues, it results in creating poor blood supply to his tissue; continuous pain from the skin breaking down and causing open sores where the veins burst and spill blood. If not treated, Chris could ultimately lose his arm.
This is a relatively rare disease with very few doctors or hospitals around the country knowing how to treat this condition. Dr. Yakes, of the Swedish Medical Center in Denver, CO is a world renowned specialist in the area of AVM. Chris has taken medical leave from work to focus on treating his AVM with Dr. Yakes and a plastic surgeon, Dr. Oswald, in an effort to save his arm. This means that Chris and another companion will be flying to Denver for four days every two weeks.
