I love my friends!!! Spread the word!!

Hey all you KHS alumni! We are planning a very casual mini-reunion for ALL classes on Sunday, December 26th, 2010. If you’re in town for the holidays, come to the Silver Star in Longview around 7pm where we’ll all get together to catch up with old classmates and have a good time! See you there!
Blue and Gold will always run deep though our veins and there’s no doubt that when one of our own has fallen we all would do anything to help her back up. Our fellow Hilander, Maya Thompson class of ’96, found out this past August that her 3 year-old son Ronan, has stage IV Neuroblastoma; a rare and very serious cancer. (If you want the s*it scared out of you, Google it). He has already had one surgery to remove a tumor behind his left eye and will be starting his 5th round of chemotherapy very soon. Next month, he will fly to New York to have another surgery to remove the massive tumor in his abdomen and will stay in NY for about a month while he recovers. Obviously all of this accrues ridiculous medical bills for the family even though they have insurance. We thought while we are all having fun during our little reunion it might be nice to help out the Thompson family. We are asking a suggested $5 donation from each person, which will all be donated to The Ronan Thompson Foundation to help the family out with his medical bills and once he beats this, they will continue to raise money in Ronan’s honor to donate to hospitals, cancer research, and childhood cancer awareness. We will also be selling “F*ck you cancer” and “Our little hero” bracelets for $5 each and “Rockstar Ronan” T-shirts for $20; all of the proceeds go to Ronan’s foundation. We hope you can come out to reminisce with all of your fellow classmates and donate to the Thompson family if you are able to. “To be with us, you have to be good. To stay with us, you have to be strong. To beat us, you have to be kidding. We Are Kelso.”

  1. I’d like to purchase bracelets, but I live in Texas. Can you ship them to me? I don’t mind sending an extra couple of dollars for shipping.

    1. Hi Stephanie…email me at rockstarronan@gmail.com, let me know what style you want and how many of each. Please include your address. I will respond ASAP! 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. That last post makes me wish I were Kelso! (not a clue what Kelso is…)

    Meanwhile, I read, I follow, I hope, I love Ronan like my own and sometimes when I close my eyes I can see his eyes from the pic with the flower.

    Maya..you are an amazing woman, mother, female, citizen, wife, human, rockstar birther, friend, runner, prayer, child of the world, daughter, (probably a great Kelsor too, but again, not a clue what that is). Crying, therapy and or drugs do not make you any less of the above, they make you better at the above! Power to the Kelsos (whomever you are!).
    Love Elisa
    P.S. I’m glad you will be friends and family for Thanksgiving, not in a hospital!

    1. LOL! Kelso, Washington is where I grew up. Small town, huge hearts, amazing friends. 🙂

  3. Maya,
    Was so glad to hear how important and loved Jim is in your lives. He is simply one of the greatest guys that could be. Also happy to see your quote from Sark– he’s great, isn’t he? Wishing you & yours a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! Love, Sue
