We are continuing to raise money for Gage and the Hoy family!
Due to COVID-19 concerns, we will be canceling the breakfast portion of the benefit, which was scheduled for March 22nd. We have started a GoFundMe campaign for Gage at this link gf.me/u/xqz4gw Please consider donating, leaving words of encouragement for the family, praying, and sharing the page. Please check our facebook page for additional updates – https://www.facebook.com/romanbartenbreakfast
Donations can also be sent to the “Gage Hoy Benefit Account” at Frandsen Bank and Trust, PO Box 200, Lonsdale, 55046. All donations are anonymous.
To quote our Grandma Julianna, “When you’re feeling sorry for yourself, go do something for someone else.”
These next few days… or weeks… we may be feeling sorry for ourselves that those events we have been so much looking forward to have been cancelled. Maybe it was a sporting event, or a vacation, or a very worthy fundraiser like the many that happen this time of year.
So we all have a chance to DO SOMETHING GOOD for someone else!!! Whether or not you were planning on attending our breakfast, or another benefit, your support is needed now more than before! Together our community can come together, focusing on a family in need, giving them hope!!
About Gage: Doctors telling you that the cancer is back is not good news to anyone – especially for a happy, easy-going young boy. Gage Hoy is bravely fighting back. Diagnosed at age 3 1/2 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Gage underwent over three years of chemotherapy. However, ongoing blood tests confirmed the cancer has returned. Now intense chemo treatments mean lengthy hospital stays, requiring a parent with him around the clock, and will continue through 2021. On the bright side, Gage is a huge “Lego Guy” and is looking forward to water sports, karate, football and hockey! He is a “laid-back but goofy” big brother to Harper, age 6. Both attend Tri-City United Elementary Schoo;. Gage is the son of Asher and Marissa Hoy of Lonsdale.
