The Story

A few weeks ago a much loved member of our community, nine-year-old Jack Dorr, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. He is now getting treatment in Portland, Oregon and is dealing with this challenge with courage and good humor.

In Trish's name, friends of Jack and his family have organized this fundraiser, to help pay for the expenses that are associated with obtaining treatment. Funds are immediately deposited into the Jack Hoover Dorr Trust, and will help pay for living and travel expenses for finishing radiochemotherapy in Portland, going to Portland every other week afterward, modifications to the house so that Jack can get around comfortably, and any other related expenses that may come up.

The community support that has been shown has been immense, and Trish and her family are very grateful. Positive thoughts and prayers are the most important thing, and if you are inclined to donate as well, anything helps and we appreciate it!

Thank you so much for the generous donations that have been made to help our family during this unpredictable time! I have been so moved and grateful for everything that has come our way, whether it be a monetary contribution, an act of service at our house in Ashland (while we're still in Portland!), and all of the love and good wishes headed toward Jack and his healing. He is doing GREAT, and it's in no small part because of the positive energy and strong bursts of love from all over the place!

We are excited to celebrate life and community at an event that friends are organizing for us on April 19th. You can see more information about it on the Facebook page that was created:

Thanks again, and Jack and Alex and I hope to celebrate with you on the 19th!
