On Thanksgiving most of us do our best to count our blessings and share time with those closest to us. My wife and I will be joining the 2 million other travelers on the highways this turkey day so that we can take our children to visit their grandparents. That’s what the holidays are all about. The holidays are not supposed to be about terminal cancer but for one City of Kent employee that’s what she and her family are dealing with this Thanksgiving. Hers is one of those stories that shakes you to your core. She’s too young and too healthy to be facing what she’s facing. I can’t pretend to even begin to know what she must be dealing with but I did offer to do my part to let people know about a fundraising event that is being sponsored in her honor to ease her financial burden as she spend her final days with her loved ones.
