... for the gift
On behalf of the women and children we serve, AWARE would like to extend deep appreciation to the Juneau Glacier Valley Rotary Club. In honor of outgoing president Max Mertz, Glacier Valley Rotary Club made a financial donation to the AWARE Children's Program. This enables us to purchase a children's puppet theater and numerous books to help teach children about personal safety, communications skills and enhancement of self-esteem.
This gift will provide AWARE with an improved prospect of reaching these children, who have been exposed to domestic violence or sexually abusive situations. Improving the quality of life for the children of our community is an admirable contribution. AWARE is very grateful that the Glacier Valley Rotary Club honored AWARE in conjunction with their outgoing president, Max Mertz.

This is a long overdue thank you letter to all the generous people that have supported us during our adventures in treating my breast cancer.
We have been overwhelmed and awed by the outreach from our community. It is impossible to thank everyone in this venue, but we would like to mention a few who were instrumental in organizing a fund-raiser for our benefit: Adrienne Reynolds, Brad Campbell, Bill Janes, Eve Reckley, Scott and Stefanie Marnon, Tonja Moser, Di Johnson, Shane and Susan Quigley, Rick Kaufman, Jeff Brown, Norma Strickland, Dale Goznell and Lise Paradis, Pauline Higdon and the Craig family.
We would like to extend our appreciation and thanks to everyone who donated items to the fund-raiser as well as to the Hangar for donating the ballroom for the event.
A special thanks to Kim Frangos, who has diligently managed organizing dinners for us, and all of you who have prepared the wonderful dinners. Having a few dinners prepared for us has been a tremendous help.
We want to thank our co-workers at the City and Borough of Juneau for their patience and generosity during this crisis.
We want to thank my team of caregivers for the amazing support, constant availability and dedicated vigilance to my care: Dr. Emily Kane, Dr. Bob Urata, and Dr. Sandra Tatro. A special thanks to the compassionate and resourceful women at Bartlett Regional Hospital's Infusion Therapy Clinic, Tamara Simone-Collins, RN and Sue Morin. There are, of course, many more to thank than can be acknowledged here, but please know we are very appreciative of your thoughtful care.
There is no expression of thanks, appreciation and gratitude that we could write that acknowledges how each of you has touched our lives. We are confident that it is with all of your support, enthusiasm and encouragement that we will successfully fight against this disease.
