To the Times of Ti:
My 7-year-old daughter, Chasity, has recently completed cancer treatments that lasted a little over two years. It was a long, hard road but we finally made it! At this time we would like to thank those who have helped us as we journeyed through this difficult time in our lives.
We would first like to thank our family and friends. You have been our rock, as well as given us a shoulder to cry on when things have been especially difficult. We cannot thank you enough for all the love and support you have given us.
Secondly, we would like to thank the Make-A-Wish foundation of Northeastern New York, especially our wish makers Rod Mace, Erin DuVall and Scott Sayward. By granting a wish you were able to make Chasity's dream of going Disney World come true. You brought us a lot of joy and happiness, and have given us the opportunity to make many amazing memories that will last us a lifetime.
Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank John Boyea, Boyea’s Grocery and Deli, as well as everyone at Moriah Central School, Moriah Fire Department, Port Henry Fire Department, and the rest of our community for your contributions, as well as all your love, prayers, and well wishes throughout the past couple of years. You are all amazing and have helped to make this cancer remission possible!
We still have a long road ahead of us to make sure Chasity’s health is maintained, but we know we could never have gotten this far without help from every one of you.
Thank you all so much!
Carrie and Chasity O'Connor, Mineville
