Benefit Concert to be held...

"A benefit concert will be held for 13-year-old Zachary Dievendorf, who was
diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. The concert, featuring a variety of
sacred selections, will be performed by twin pianists Elizabeth and Evangeline
Canfield on Thursday June 5th, at 7:00 PM at the Fulton Christian Missionary
Alliance Church. All proceeds from the offering will go to Zach's parents, Fulton police Lt. Tim and Jennifer Dievendorf. "
Not too long ago we found out that one of the Fulton Police officer's son Zachary was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. A few weeks ago we watched him and his siblings while their parents were away, and during the entire evening Zac kept complaining about being dizzy. We didn't think much of it until we got the news about the tumor. The dizziness was what actually alerted the parents that something was wrong. Right now the parents are with Zach at St. Jude's hospital in TN. Things are not looking good, and it will take a miracle from God to heal him of this tumor. As you can guess by the poster and the title of this post, Evangeline and I will be doing a benefit piano concert for Zac. It will be well advertised, so we're optimistic for a good turnout. Please keep the Dievendorfs in your prayers!

Its nice to see you getting involved. Wish we could make it to the concert. Have they tried Cancer Treatment Centers of America? They are a great place doing wonders, also including faith in GOD in the treatment plan. Hope the concert is a great success. By the way when you gonna let me record a cd for you? LOL
