Letter: What a great support system


My name is Christine Barag. I have been in the Verde Valley for most of my life, went to school here, worked here and have chosen to be here living my life.

In October, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It has been a bit of a struggle, but I have a spectacular support system. With that said, I would just like to say Thank You to all the merchants, citizens and great friends from Jerome and Cottonwood that donated items, time and money for me at my Bean’s Boobie Carnival. There were so many faces of friends that I have not seen in a while and so many that could not be there but showed their support.

It is nice to know that as big as all of our towns seem to grow there is still a loving community that will pull together when someone is in need. I am on my way in my recovery and appreciate all that I have been blessed with and hope blessings find you. Thank You All.

Christine Barag
