My family is trying to raise money for my 4 year old nephew Treiton
the son of Matthew and Janelle Carpenter of Collinsville. Treiton
was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma on July 25, 2006. We are
hosting a softball tournament at the Collinsville City Park
Labor Day weekend, with the fee of $100 for each team to
participate. We just started planning yesterday and would really
like to get the word out around town. I know the good people of
Collinsville will help them out as much as they can. Treiton and
his family are currently in Memphis, TN for his treatment, which
is experimental. They are expected to be there for at least 2 to
3 months. Matt and Janelle are unable to work and we are trying
to help pay for their monthly bills and medical bills that have
already started coming in from Saint Francis Hospital. Thank you
for your help! -- Carrie Brasel -- Aug. 3, 2006 -- (Tournament
has been set up at Arvest Bank under the name Treiton Lewis-Carpenter.
Donations will be used to help pay his medical bills from
St Francis, along with house payment, car payments, etc...
that the family has to keep up with while they are away at
St. Jude for treatment. [8/9/2006
update: The account is open, but you MUST tell them it is
for a TRAGEDY FUND in Treitons name. They cant
look it up on the computer by his name, but they have a file
at the Arvest next to Braums in Owasso. -- Tracey Jarrard]
