Holiday Shopping Extravaganza for Kennedy Duval!

On Saturday, November 4th, join us from 10am – 4pm at
Mountainview Christian Church
1890 NE Cleveland Avenue
Gresham, OR
Get started on your Christmas shopping BEFORE the big holiday rush with our many wonderful vendors such as Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, Creative Memories, Michele Baratta Jewelry and Usborne books. All of these companies have agreed to donate a percentage of their profits to help care for our little girl. Not only will you get a jump on the upcoming season, but YOU can make the difference in the life of a child.
Kennedy Duval was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on 5/9/05 at age 4. Her family originally had no medical insurance but Kennedy was approved to receive benefits from the Oregon Health Plan for 6 months. That assistance was terminated 11/30/05. Although her father had insurance benefits through his employer, they refused to cover any of Kennedy’s cancer related expenses. She started chemotherapy in May 2005 and will continue treatment until August 2007. On June 1, 2006, Kennedy was approved for benefits from the Oregon Medical Insurance Pool/Regence Blue Cross-Blue Shield. Her medical bills and care expenses are continually overwhelming because of the period of time that she had no medical coverage. An account has been opened in the name of Kennedy B. Duval Contribution Fund at Wells Fargo Bank (12005 SE Division St, Portland, OR 97266)/Acct. #2246146969. Donations may be made at any Wells Fargo Bank. The Tax ID Number for the Kennedy B. Duval Contribution Fund is 83-0484895. Any donations to her medical fund would be greatly appreciated. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers!

Kennedy is a great little girl who I have had the pleasure of meeting both her and her mom Melanie. Kennedy is the same age as my Madison and they are actually quite a lot alike and have played with each other as well as Kenzie. The girls pray for her regularly and have t-shirts they love to wear and Kenzie refuses to take off her courage for Kennedy bracelet same with Izzak. Izzak makes a point of telling everyone even his teachers about Kennedy! I plan to come to this event and hope lots of others come too!
