South Dakotans! Consider attending tonight's fundraiser, put on by the lovely souls comprising two amateur baseball teams: Dimock-Emery & Alexandria. Proceeds will support my youngest nephew, Henry, who as of this week is officially through round 1 of chemo.
Henry got sick almost exactly two years after we lost our dad to cancer. So, our family is battling cancer again and I'm not going to lie, it's a lot & each of us seeing our personal and greater community banding together is overwhelming.
Earlier this week I was chatting with my brother and he said he didn't know what to do when so many people were trying to help them. "Thank you" doesn't feel like enough. Please know it means a lot to come from a community that is throwing things like this together without any of us asking. We're very lucky, and Henry has so much to look forward to in his life with people like you banding behind his 22-month-old self.
