Fat Cats was a Success!

Amazing turn out at Fat Cats.  I can't tell you how happy Macey and our family is about the turn out last night.  It was so incredible to see all of the love and support for Macey.  Macey couldn't have been more happy and touched by each and everyone of you for being there.  There were even people we didn't know coming by to show their support for Macey.  Last night epitomized the true beauty of the human spirit and the gifts and donations were selfless acts of kindness and love.  Even though I didn't know everyone there, I'm quite certain Macey and my daughters knew almost everyone.  I would like to personally thank the following people for going out of their way to make this event happen and for the wonderful donations and support.

Fat Cats - For setting up the rooms, donating some of the prizes and accommodating our requests and giving us a place to make this all happen.  Thank you Christie and Rachel.

Hazen Photography - For bringing the breathtakingly beautiful framed prints of our girls.  For those of you who didn't know, those beautiful works of art were created, printed and framed literally hours before the event.  Hazen Photography was gracious and kind to do this for Macey and Maranda and we are thankful beyond words.  As you can see too, their work and those photos say it all.  In this case a picture is worth a thousand words.  And our family would like to say a thousand thank you's to Teresa and Ryne Hazen and all those involved in creating those works of art so quickly.

97.1 ZHT and the Morning Zoo - For helping us to promote the benefit for Macey.  They were more than willing to help out and even let us come to the studio to talk about the event on the radio.  So thanks again Frankie, DB, and Jess!

My Family - I would like to thank my wife and daughters for putting this together and for dealing with their impatient Dad when things got a bit stressful towards the end.  You are all beautiful, understanding, patient and the perfect balance of making our family so special.  I love you all!

And last and most importantly, our family and friends! - The Miracle Moo benefit wouldn't have been successful without each and everyone of you.  Thank you for being supportive, thank you for loving my daughter and thank you for the very generous donations.  It will help Macey so much. 

The Travelers - The Cheney family for driving so far, even though you were all exhausted.  Again, no words to describe how thankful we are for you.  Macey loves you all so much and your presence meant the world to her.  Also, Marty Lewis from work who drove a long way with his little girl to show support for my family.  Marty and the guys in the lab where I work are awesome.  So thanks to all of you!

We will continue to fight this terrible disease with Macey and with the love and support we have behind us, Macey's Unyielding strength, determination, and positive attitude, there is only one possible outcome.  Victory!  We will win, we will beat this and we will never accept anything less...

  1. Dear Angie,

    You and your husband really are dear people to me. And your husband has turned into one of my most valued and beloved friends in life. He and I have shared so very many happy and times together, both onstage musically, and in regular life.

    Aside from the fact that you both have created and nurtured a beautiful family, I must turn to the unpleasantness of your one daughter’s current medical condition. Let it be said that Macey’s malady, while extremely unfortunate, has inspired my class of sixth graders to ponder the meaning and the beauty of life. My students have been given an opportunity to share their love with someone they’ve never even met yet! And this is something everyone should experience in order for this world of ours to become a more just, humane, and happier planet for all life.

    We (My class and I) love Macey. We celebrate her completely and root for her eventual FULL recovery! AND, we love Miranda, too, and all of your girls, and we do not forget that it is Miranda’s birthday, too! ☺ Thank you both for persevering during this tough time. Thank you both for Macey and all of your girls; our planet is the richer for it. And thanks for putting up with the long and storied relationship between Kenneth and I; he is the only musician I’ve ever played with that has made me laugh uncontrollably onstage. And he’s just the most wonderful bassist for this drummer to play with.

    Melissa and I loved being at Fat Cats with all your friends and family.

    With much love and affection to you, Kenny, your daughters, and the “Miracle Moo”!

  2. Fred, thanks from all of us! You have been such an incredible friend and strength for my daughter. Your generous actions, continual support and love have been monumental in Macey's attitude and recovery. Thanks from all of us. With love to you and your students at Cooperview Elementary!
