The Hunt For Education
Organized by: DONNA DIXON
We have been extremely fortunate to know our friend Brian for over a decade, both as a colleague and as a friend. Brian is truly one of the good guys in all facets - work ethic, character, morals... in summary, he is a world class human being and the world has been a better place with him in it. About a year ago, Brian and his family received devastating news; he was diagnosed with stage four kidney cancer and was given 6 months to live. Brian stepped up and faced the news like any other challenge in his life, like I knew he would. He fought and he continues to fight. He worked - everyday - like he always did. He focused on all the things that were important to him - especially his family - his wife Kendra and kids; Allison Marie 11, Alexandra Gwen 11, Abigail Elizabeth 10 almost and Angus Ian 4.Even though Brian was committed to fighting this, his biggest concern when diagnosed was not his future, but that of his kids. His concern was he did not have their college funds set up so they would have the opportunity for the college education that he wanted for them. Brian is a self taught man, extremely intelligent and talented and went back to school late in life as he understood the value education. Education is important to him and his greatest wish for his children.We have decided try to grant this wish for Brian and are raising money to start a college fund for his kids so they will get the chance for a greater education that their father realized was the key to opening any and all doors to a great and fulfilling future.
