Club Med G.O.s read and watched the top entries, then voted to send a family to Ixtapa Pacific. Winners, or their nominators will be contacted directly. Here are the results: The winner, with the most votes was:5) Kathy from Pennsylvania writes: I nominate Ethan and his family for the Club Med family giveaway. Ethan, 5, born deaf, received his first cochlear implant at one, this year his second. During recovery, he was diagnosed with leukemia. One of three children, older sister Emma 7 and younger brother Eliot 2. This leukemia’s only treatable with bone marrow transplant. Eliot was a perfect match. After heavy doses of chemotherapy and total body radiation to kill all his bone marrow; August 20, Ethan received the gift of life, from Eliot. He’s home now while his immune system builds to defend him. He’s unable to be around anyone other than immediate family. Mother, Johanna is nurse, mother and teacher, home schooling the children to prevent the spread of germs. Father, Yancy juggles a full time job and numerous doctors’ visits. Ethan will be quarantined from six months to a year. Life has been put on hold for this family. What could be "BETTER MED" than CLUB MED for a family who has been through so much? Please consider them for this vacation. "CLUB MED is the BEST MED". Read about their journey and see pictures, go to http://www.lentfamily.org//blog There was a tie for second between the story about the wildfires in California and Shayne M. Re-read their stories here. 3) Anita in San Diego writes:I would like to nominate my good friend Marta and her family who just lost their home last week in the terrible fires that stormed through San Diego County. We’ve had fires before of course and Marta and her family were always on the spot helping those in need and their horses which needed evacuation to safety any hour of the day or night. Last Monday October 22 Marta and Tony and their kids and horses and dogs evacuated their home at 4:30am and by 6am the fire roared through the beautiful valley and their home was gone. In spite of the horror and heartache, Marta has maintained a smile and quiet calm and strength saying "it was only things and we can replace those - our family and beloved animals are all safe and we’ll re-build on this spot better than ever!"Marta has volunteered many hours of her time in the community and has befriended my autistic son and gifted him with many hours of horse therapy and friendship that have opened the door to him in ways that I could never have hoped for.If anyone deserves a vacation in beautiful Ixtapa, it’s Marta - she’s MY hero!!4) Heidi of Utah writes: I am nominating the family of Shayne M.Shayne, his wife Debbie and his children deserve a Club Med break. Shayne works 60 or more hours a week to keep his family afloat. He is a driver at my work and I watch his long hours and listen to his conversations with Debbie over the days he can’t be home but is only 30 miles south of her loading his truck for the 3rd, 4th or 5th time in a week. This wouldn’t be a big deal; however Shayne should have been dead more than 1-1/2 years ago. He was bitten by a recluse spider on his leg and the poison went into a main artery and into his entire system. He was treated initially improperly at the E.R. and was then told after many doctors appointments that he would die within the next few weeks. He has lived, but it has depleted him and affected most of his organ functions. Every day is a battle for him, but he smiles, supports his family and is a cornerstone at [deleted] Petroleum. Club Med would provide the perfect place for his family to heal and re-group to keep fighting his disease.Read More...
