Most of us are never prepared for life altering events that take place to either us, our family, or a friend. Tragedy can strike in an instant.

As a community, we have the ability to come together and support one another, a true showing of force and love. It's true, there is strength in numbers, and each of us can make a difference by doing our part.

Jason Mills from the Augusta Fire Department contacted us to let us know that a very dear and close friend to him, a Firefighter and EMS colleague was just recently made aware that his wife has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

He asked us to pass along the information about a fundraiser that is being put together by The Red Barn Restaurant, in Augusta. Laura and her staff are generously throwing this fundraiser this Thursday (7/29). Half of the proceeds from this event will be going to support the aggressive needs to fight this newly discovered breast cancer.

On behalf of all involved we thank you for your support.
