Rally For Cancer Victim


 





It has been six years since Jamie "Jester" McKinnon of Team Blitzkrieg was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma cancer; undergoing surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. With your help, her recovery has been a great success, as she is nearing the end of the five-year recurrence period for all recovering cancer patients. We thank you sincerely and deeply for supporting her and remembering her throughout this ordeal. She will turn 21 this year, and is as independent and strong as ever.

Our own relief is subdued, however, as we learn one of paintball's foremost players is now facing the same trials and uncertainty. We ask once more for the paintball industry to step up to help one of our own: The family of Kevin "Joker" Wilkes - of Team Joint Fury and William Shatner's Magnificent Seven fame - has come under the gun.

On April 8, 2003, Kevin & Linda's 7-year-old daughter, Kayleigh Wilkes, underwent surgery to remove a malignant tumor and affected kidney. The initial procedure was a success, but there is a long, most difficult road ahead for Kayleigh, as she must undergo both radiation and chemotherapy. While the surgery recovery is progressing well, the forthcoming months of
treatments and hospitalization is looming. There is no question of the huge toll this family must now endure. The Wilkes need YOUR help!

To the Paintball Industry: We ask the manufacturers and retail representatives to step up to the plate and donate product for a prize raffle to benefit Kayleigh Wilkes. The raffle will take place on Sunday afternoon, May 25, 2003, at EMR Paintball Park at the conclusion of the
"Twin Towers" scenario event.

Send your product donations for this raffle to:
The Kayleigh Wilkes Fund Raffle
C/O EMR Paintball Park
P.O. Box 728
Rt. 706 & 601
New Milford, PA 18834

For cash and check donations for Kayleigh, make checks payable to Kayleigh Wilkes
Send to: Kayleigh Wilkes
125 Blough Road
Fairless Hills, PA 19030

Paypal donations for Kayleigh to: Kwilkes@princeton.edu

If you are a blood donor, please donate in the name of Kayleigh Wilkes, c/o
Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Pediatric Oncology

Guys and gals, please take five minutes out of your time to address an
envelope; drop in a check, or open your Paypal account and send what you can
to help Kayleigh fight an enemy no child should ever have to face!

Sincerely,
Patrick "Pacman" McKinnon, Diane "Mother" Howe, Michael "Blue" & Sue Hanse
