NVE Hosts Electronic Recycling Event
As you may already know, 6 year old Shyanne Deming has recently been diagnosed with Myelodysplasia, a bone marrow disorder, which if not treated immediately, can progress into leukemia. Fortunately, the doctors and specialists at the Seattle Children’s Hospital have caught it in its early stages and will begin treatment in early November. She will be receiving a bone marrow transplant from her older brother Ethan, who has been confirmed as a viable donor.
Shyanne and her parents, Lathen Deming and Sonya Anderson, as well as brothers Ethan and Denali moved from Cordova a few years ago and currently reside in Blaine, WA. They will be traveling frequently between Blaine and Seattle over the next few months for treatment and follow-ups.
To help with Shyanne’s medical and travel expenses, The Native Village of Eyak will be holding a lumpia fundraiser at this year’s 17th Annual Sobriety Celebration on Saturday, November 13 from 10-4pm in the Cordova High School cafeteria. Another lumpia take-out dinner fundraiser will be held on Sunday, November 28 at the Masonic Hall from 5-7pm. If you would like to help or make a donation, please contact Reyna for more information at (907) 429-7527 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please pass this along. The family greatly appreciates your thoughts, prayers, and continued support!
