Charlotte Snyder is an amazing 15 year old who is truly an inspiration to anyone she meets. Diagnosed at 4 months old, she has had many hospital stays over the year. She does treatments 3 times a day for up to an hour each time, and takes numerous pills each day to keep her young body well. But it never phases her. She always has a smile on her face and ready to take on the world! She currently loves fashion, mine craft, and you tube videos and hopes to be an FBI Forensic Scientist when she grows up. Charlotte is not a "typical" teenager and she takes this as a compliment.

Bill Pellegrini is retired carpenter and handy-man. When we met Bill in 2009 he was in a tough place but since then, he's gotten his income stable stabilized, secured a GA drivers license (after 30 plus years), and most recently, found a new place to live at St. Mark's Towers (our H.U.D. facility). But last week, Bill was in Augusta at the VA Hospital for a needle biopsy an pulmonary function test. He has no family except his church and we are honored to walk with him as he prepares to fight. Bill is not a "typical" carpenter and he takes this as a compliment.

"In 2017, Harrison and I paddle boarded 111 from Key Largo to Key West (pictured right south of mile marker "0" in Key West) to raise support for and awareness of Cystic Fibrosis because a young girl in our parish has CF. This fundraising effort raised just under $10,000. It was amazing. Today, 4 members of our congregation and one member of our family in Kentucky are also simultaneously battling cancer. So this year, we are doing something even bigger. We've joined forces with 200 other paddlers in the "2019 Crossing for a Cure". Working together, we can defeat CF and Cancer. If you have any questions or would like to speak to me directly, I work Sunday through Thursday at St. Mark's Episcopal Church. Give me a call at 912-265-0600. Or feel free to call my cell at 912-222-8746."
