Default Arianna Perez Benefit Fun Fly April 18-20, 08 Clearview Field, Argonia, KS

Guys and Gals:

Thanks to those of you that helped last year. This year we moved the location and the date so make sure to mark it on your calendars.

April 18-20, 2008 at Clearview Field, Argonia KS.

I am preparing a fun fly to benefit my Niece, Arianna Perez. She was born with a defect that left her right leg quite a bit shorter than the left leg. For the surgery / procedure, my sister and my mom have travelled from Puerto Rico to Maryland 6 times in the last 3 years. Up unitl now, my brother-in-law's medical insurance has paid all the medical bills. All we had to pay was the plane tickets and the hotel stay in Maryland.

Arianna went thru a bone enlargement procedure two years ago on the lower leg. All went fine. And she's home recovering with her leg in a cast. Last year Arianna broke her leg, and the procedure had to be postponed until her leag healed engough to continue the procedure. This year, she will have to go back and start the procedure to enlarge the upper leg. The doctors told my sister that they would prefer if they stayed in Maryland for the length of the procedure, that is about 6 months.

So I'm trying to pull of the strings that I know of to collect some money to help pay for the plane tickets, and the hotel stay. And in the event that the medical insurance runs dry.

Please send me a PM or e-mail me at rafael.flores01 at gmail.com (remove the spaces and the at) if you have any questions.

Less than two weeks for this event. I'm going to Clearview Field this weekend to make sure all last minute details are under control.

Hope to see you there!

Rafael
