**************************************************


To the Ropers In Need,
My name is Jimmy Petersen and I am from Burwell.  In July, my nine year old daughter, Dylan, started having severe leg pain in her left leg.  After many trips to different hospitals, we finally got sent to Children's Hospital in Omaha where they found out she had staph infection in her hip and was in very critical condition.  After a short surgery by Amazing Doctors and a few sleepless nights, we were able to come home...(with the help of Amazing Nurses).  She has since made a full recovery, with no muscle or bone damage.  Dylan is back to doing what she loves; doing cartwheels and riding horses.
To the people who donate to this cause---Thank You from the bottom of my heart!  It is so nice to see perfect strangers paying it forward!

Sincerely,
Jimmy Petersen


**************************************************

Thank you LeAnn and Ropers,
LeAnn it means so much that you have set up a fund to help me and other roping families in times of need. Neri and I are sincerely grateful for all the contributions that have been made and for the funds LeAnn has shared with us. I have now completed my chemo treatments and I'm looking forward to regaining my health. I also must say a word on breast cancer awareness. Women be proactive, men encourage the ladies in your life to be deligent with getting mammogram and doing self-examines. It saves lives! See you next year.

With great thanks,
Neri & Patty Barstow
