I’m writing regarding the well-written article by TX. writer, Nathan Beeston about Maddie Cook’s battle with bone cancer (Dec. 2, “Take that, cancer!”).

As many know, the fight against cancer is very stressful, but also very costly. My comment is to give thanks to those who were responsible for the several fund raisers that were given in her behalf, such as those by the students at Syracuse High and the community of Syracuse, the firefighters and law enforcement, friends and neighbors as far away as Boise, Idaho, and finally family.

We are blessed to live in a great time when we are given the advantages of great professional knowledge and technology that a short time ago would have appeared to be nothing short of miracles. Although, in these past years, we have truly seen many. Thanks again.
