Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser

Mark Mckinzie Family Needs Your Help !

Mercy and Wayne Yaeger are looking for help for their oldest son, Mark Mckinzie. Mark, a 20 year old Wor Wic student, was having trouble concentrating due to persistent headaches. Then one august evening he had a seizure. A CAT scan revealed Mark had a brain tumor. He was flown to John’s Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore where emergency surgery was performed. After several surgeries, more than 95% of the tumor was removed.

Mark must now face extensive physical therapy and then radiation and chemotherapy treatments to treat the portion o the tumor that could not be removed in surgery. Health insurance covers portion of Mark’s care, but Mark’s mother, father and two younger brothers are facing a financial battle involving lost wages, mounting medical expenses, and the cost of commuting and staying in lodging to be by his side.

If you would like to help his family, there is a Spaghetti Dinner, DJ Dance and Golf Ball Drop Fundraiser on October 17th at the Elks Lodge #1624 in Pocomoke.

Its called UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE. Tell people to call their representatives and DEMAND that they stop catering to the special interest insurance groups and give what 75% of the American People WANT. Stop the insanity. Stop lining the pockets of the richest 1%. Why do people fight against their own best interests and continue to give more and more and more to the wealthy?

what in the heck are you babbling about?

healthcare? this is a fund raiser dinner.

I don't mind you posting but remember, this site post truth found and report on those truths.

75% of the people DO NOT want government healthcare.. they want LESS government in their lives. That' is the facts.. and not the liberal olbermann talking points.

I'd be glad to post something on healthcare to debate if you'd like. But be prepared to argue FACTS.. not mythical MSNBC numbers.

Yeah, universal health care is going to pay for the family's lodging in Baltimore. Shut up and go to the fundraiser!

Is there some reason you object to the posting of a fundraiser?

jmmb, I'm not objecting to the posting of the fundraiser. It's a great idea-the more free advertising the better. I'm agreeing with Public Eye and referring to the first comment which is totally off the wall in my opinion.

Then my apologies, please!
With everything that has been happening on this web site I hope you understand how easily it is to become confused.

The "anon" sometimes just seem to run together.......

Sorry about that. Please forgive me.
