If there is one “friend” that stands out for my seven-year-old grandniece Faith Fulmer among the 1,535 that she has on her facebook page (Faith’s Friends) to see her through her fight against a rare children’s bone cancer, that person might be David Graham.
Faith comes from Medford, a small city in southern Oregon, and David owns a restaurant there called 38 Central. They didn’t know each other a scant few months ago when a friend of the Fulmer family was lunching at his place and mentioned a little girl whose family could use some help…lots of help.
On Saturday, the 25th of this month, the Qi Brothers band will hold a benefit at 38 Central and will donate the door charges directly to Faith – and a fine arts auction that same night will provide funds. Naturally (that’s how things work in a small town), there will be a donation jar.
There are many other sources of generosity and support that have come forth – additional restaurants in the Rogue Valley as well as Handprints of Hope in Grants Pass which put on a concert. The love, and the donations, keep flowing in.
My regards, respect and appreciation for those who have demonstrated this extraordinary level of care – I will do a much more inclusive blog another time.
