Letter to the Editor

Thanks for your generosity

Wednesday, November 28, 2007

Dear editor,

On Nov. 11, Shear Attitude held a benefit day for the Lupus Foundation on behalf of our daughter, Jennifer Hancock. We would like to thank Gina Kafer, Michelle Meyer, and Angie Stone, and their husbands, for all their work in coordinating and carrying out this generous gift. These three ladies gave up a Saturday to donate their time and skills for lupus. We appreciate it very much.

We would like to thank Murphy Farms for their donation of hot dogs. Thank you to Woods for their donation of buns and chips. And thank you to Budweiser for donating bottles of water.

Finally, we would like to thank all of the people and businesses who gave monetary donations. This money has been sent to the Lupus Foundation. According to the Lupus Foundation of America, it uses contributions to, "find the causes and cure for lupus, to educate health care professionals about development in diagnosis and treatment, and to provide support to individuals affected by lupus." Your contributions have been sent to this organization with our prayers that someday a cure will be found for this debilitating disease.

Thank you to all that helped with this project for lupus, a disease that is so personal to our family.


Jane Ann and Terry Hancock
