There is going to be a poker run in central fl (read: polk county) in January, possibly February. we are in the beginning stages of planning a poker run to benefit a VERY sick lil girl who is a neice of someone who is in our club. We have decided that our charity will be someone local, an individual, vs. a charitable organization (not that there's anything wrong w/ that).

ANYWAYS....

I made some promises at our Jeep Club meeting tonite re: you guys. I told them you are all a bunch of class acts who will answer the call when we finally get a date and plans organized for this poker run. We expect to have great prizes, a lot of fun, and to help a very sick little girl get a surgery she needs - as well get her family TO the surgery in Texas.

A few of you owe me favors - I expect you to ante up. The rest of you - follow suite and do the right thing. I, no, SHE, is counting on the charity and generosity of a bunch of Jeepers. I know you wont let me down.

VENDORS: If you want to donate to this event - I will have details regarding our lil Angel and how you can help out in a few days. So far, we have a winch donated by the lil girl's uncle (a jeep club member). This is real charity for a real person.

Make me proud Jkowners .

Details to follow - in this thread....

Peace.

As Karn has stated this event will be planned for January or February 2010 and we will post up as soon as many of us can check our schedules. I am impressed alrewady with the reponse here but I can't say I am surprised. This site has some great people on it and no matter our political, religious, or ethnic background we all seem to pull together when its important. I even like some of you New York Yankee fans (Go Sox!!) but I would like to extend my thnaks in advance for an event that will mopst assuredly kick ass.

This is the e-mail I received from Laceys mother regarding her illness. Please take the time to read this story.

JKO Venders lets show everybody what your made of and come of those checkbooks and give us some swag.
Again the date will be posted soon and we are thinking sometime in January or February 2010.

Thanks

Jake (Jester)


In July of 1999 Lacey was born in Winter Haven, FL. She was immediately flown to Tampa General's NICU. After 2 weeks of intense testing the doctor's diagnosed her with King Syndrome. She is only the 3rd child to be born in the US with this syndrome. The doctor's said she would never live. At 3 weeks old she had her first surgery, this was to stitch down her diaphragm to allow her lung to work. This surgery was unsuccessful, so Lacey had to be on oxygen 24 hrs a day. Lacey's spine was crushing her lung, causing her to have chronic respiratory insufficiency. She had contractures of all her joints, causing her to be unable to raise her arms, walk or crawl. She also had severe kypho scoliosis, webbing of the neck, severe hearing loss, hypoglycemia, malignant hyperthermia, failure to thrive, a severe club foot and a vertical tailus. At 1 year old she had 3 surgeries to help correct her feet. She also had to have 2 surgeries on her hips. When she was 3 years old she was still on oxygen and on a bi-pap machine to help her breathe. Her lung doctor told us her condition was getting worse & if something wasn't done we could lose her. Her spine was now at a 86 degree curviture, & it was crushing her lung and in to her pelvic bone. No one in Florida could help her so they got us in contact with a doctor in Texas who had invented a surgery they thought might save Lacey's life. In Sept of 2002 when we flew out to meet with the team of doctor's Lacey was 3 years old and only weighed 18 lbs. The doctors agreed to do the surgery if Lacey had a feeding tube placed to help her gain some weight and a port so they could access her IV's since her veins were not very good. We came home & Lacey had both of those surgeries. In April of 2003 we flew back to Texas for the Titanium Rib Implant. Lacey was in a coma & on a respirator for 9 days. We were able to fly her back home a month later. The surgery helped and she was able to eventually come off of the bi-pap and is only on oxygen at night and when she is sick. Lacey had a great desire to walk and once again there was no one in Florida who could help her. Through the doctor in Texas we were able to find a surgeon who could help her but he was in Seattle. In May of 2007 we flew out and met with him and he scheduled her surgery for Oct. of 2007. She had 2 surgeries on her legs in Seattle, and we were able to bring her home 1 week before Christmas. Lacey is now able to do some walking with the help of a walker. She has now had a total of 25 surgeries & we travel every 6 months to Texas for surgery on her spine. She will continue to have surgery every 6 months for the next 7-8 years. The travel cost is an average of $3,000 - $5,000 every 6 months. Lacey requires oxygen on the plane which is $400 each trip, we rent a car and are usually in a hotel for about 2 weeks. We also have to eat each meal out or at the hospital. Lacey is a precious child with a positive attitude.

Thank you so much for considering Lacey for this fundraiser. This will truly be a blessing to her and our family.

That's an increadible story. I am dealing with a situation where a friend of mine fell off a bridge at work a few months back, and the support of the local community is what's pulling his family through the tradgety. I am in.

Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
