CHEERS! to supporters of Abigail’s battle with cancer

abigail-grandparentsCHEERS!, from Dianne and Charlie Rose, grandparents of the County’s Abigail Heffernan, to all those who helped raise $46,253.07 to assist in her battle with cancer.

“Prior to the start of high school in 2015, our granddaughter Abigail Heffernan (Abby) was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and later tested positive for the Philadelphia Chromosome, a specific genetic abnormality. She has edured nine intense months of treatment and doctors have said she has at least another two years until treatment is complete.

“So we sat down one day and decided that we wanted to help in some way. That’s when we decided we would ask for donations from local businesses and have a ticket fundraiser. That’s when our “Our Fight For Abby” began.

“We sold the tickets at $20 each, with great prizes. We also had a gigantic yard sale on May 24 weekend, which was also a great success. On the Saturday of the yard sale we drew the names of the winners for the ticket prizes.”

The winners are as follows:

1st Prize… Load of fire wood donated by Hald Robinson Logging, won by Kenda Gillespie, of Bancroft. This was kindly donated back to Abigail.

2nd Prize… Regal Propane barbecue donated by Bancroft Home Hardware, won by Melanie Wright and kindly donated back to Abigail.

3rd Prize… Rock Heritage Pots & Pans, donated by McCaskie Electric, won by William D. Watson and was kindly donated back to Abigail.

4th Prize… Meadowbark Recliner donated by Leon’s of Bancroft, won by Garnet Smith of Bailiboro and also donated back to Abigail.

5th Prize… Samsung 40″ Smart T.V. donated by Poppa Charlie and Grandma Di, purchased at McCaskie T.V.& Stereo, won by Ed Hoover of Bancroft.

6th prize… Milwaukee compact driver, donated by Wilson Tim-Br Mart and won by Deb Esposito of Bancroft.

7th Prize… $100 gift certificate donated by York River Concrete, won by Brett Hele of Picton.

We would also like to thank McCaskie T.V.& Stereo for the fantastic price reduction on a queen size electric bed for Abby.

Special CHEERS! to all the businesses in Bancroft and Picton that donated money and merchandise to Abby and to friends and family that helped sell tickets, and all who have helped in anyway these past nine months!
