To the President, Board of Directors and Members of Ring 10,
Amazing this organization is to have come into our lives and helped us in ways and words we cannot say. On November 28, 2014, the day after Thanksgiving, I was standing too close to my propane heater and my pant legs caught fire. Tragically, I received some second and third degree burns to the backside of my body. I am blessed to be alive today.
To this day, my wife, Mary, and I never knew or had any thought of a miracle/blessing (Ring 10) to step in and offer to help us in such a way that we are still in awe. We thank you, Matt, for calling and keeping in touch with me to see how things are going. Each day I’m fighting another round. I’m currently in the rehabilitation unit stretching, bending and learning to walk the stairs and all that’s needed to get me back to where I need to be. Fighting another round.
Again, thank you, Ring 10, for all that you do. You have helped us in such a BIG way by providing help with our utility bills. Another stepping stone for not having to worry. I will never forget this as long as I live.
During my fighting career, I often used this phrase, “I may get knocked down, but I won’t get knocked out.”
I’m thanking God every day for allowing me another chance and thanking him also for you, Ring 10, for making another chance easier as I begin the healing process.
