Come out and eat with us! The annual Jadyn Fred Foundation and Paul’s Pancake Parlor fundraiser is a great place to meet new people, support a great cause, and eat lots of pancakes while also getting the chance to win fun prizes!
See you March 4, 2017 at Paul’s Pancake Parlor! Thank you to the Missoula Broadcasting Company for getting the word out and to Paul’s Pancake Parlor for being a place our community can gather.
We know you’ve all been asking when is the annual Paul’s Pancake Parlor Fundraiser!
Woohoo, here’s the delightful and decadent answer…
Bring all your friends and family for a very fun time supported by so many local businesses, celebrities, and community members. If there’s someone new to town, and they don’t know about this special event, be sure to share it with them so they can be more connected as well as meet a ton of new friends. Great networking, great pancakes, but even more it’s a great time!
See you there!
Welcome to our guest contributor, Katie Huisman, with CMR High School HOSA, as she tells us about their buckets of love for kids with cancer. She shared her article in a special talk at the basketball game at halftime to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer. Watch what a great job she did or scroll down for the article transcript…
And there’s one more opportunity on Feb. 10, 2017 at CMR vs. GTF in Great Falls. There’ll be a spaghetti feed at 4pm, silent auction, and halftime entertainment. Don’t miss it! The kids have worked hard to support their community. Let’s get out there and support them! Take it away, Katie…
Katie: CMR and GFH High School HOSA have teamed up to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer in Montana. The Jadyn Fred Foundation is an organization that helps the costs associated with caring for a child with cancer.
Standing with me is Austyn. Upon birth, the doctors discovered a large tumor on Austyn’s thigh. Within hours after delivery Austyn and Justine were air lifted to Seattle Children’s Hospital and were told their baby had cancer. At 4 days old Austyn underwent her first surgery to have a central line placed. She received 10 weeks of chemotherapy. She underwent surgery again at 3 months old to remove the tumor with minimal damage done to her leg. Austyn was able to come home for the first time at 4 months old.
Over the past five years Austyn has had numerous check-ups in Seattle. The Marchion family feels they were blessed by overwhelming support from the Great Falls Community. The Jadyn Fred Foundation was a generous supporter. Their financial support helped with medical bills, living costs and travel expenses.
Days after Austyn’s first birthday her MRI showed another spot on her leg. She had to undergo yet another surgery to have it removed. Once again the Jadyn Fred Foundation was there to help!
Austyn has now gone 4 years with no evidence of cancer. This May she will have her last check up. If all is well she will be considered cancer free! The Marchion family can’t express how grateful they are for the Jadyn Fred foundation and all of their support.
We are selling CMR T-shirts up near the concession stand and currently passing around buckets for donations to support the Jadyn Fred Foundation as they continue to help other families in Montana like Austyn’s. Thank you for your support of such a worthy organization.
JFF: We are grateful for the overwhelming success of this buckets of love fundraiser event. Thank you to all who contributed. You’ve made a difference in the lives of Montana children just like Austyn! See you all Feb. 10th!
