The Pancake breakfast for Ky Loop on April 5, had a really good, even a really great turn out! I don’t know the exact numbers but there were well over 100 folks who came to the Community Center to have breakfast and spend some time together. The event started at about 6 AM and continued until after noon. I spent a good part of the day there, helping in the kitchen and was touched to see the large turnout. Late in the morning, Ky Loop came by to join the crowd. Many of his friends were responsible for organizing the event, as well as spending a lot of time and their own money to help move the event foreword. Ky sincerely thanked each of them. Ky is looking good. He said he had gone through his 3rd round of chemo and had not started to feel the major ill effects of the therapy.
None of us would want to be stricken by Cancer. It takes supreme bravery to confront and fight this kind of battle. In addition to being very brave, having a large group of friends and supporters turn out to help and contribute has got to be one of the greatest experiences one could ever have. In our darkest hours, having a single friend can change our world. Having over a hundred friends offer support is awe inspiring. While term “community support” seems like a relic from another time, it is breathtaking to see so many people who care. This kind of event can re-affirm one’s faith in humanity.
Ky still needs your assistance. He has no insurance and if you can afford to make a small contribution, or even if you can’t kindly take a moment to visit his site: http://kyloop.com/donate
Hang in there Ky, we’re all sending our best hopes and prayers!
