The word has gotten out about Megan's treatment via word of mouth, Facebook, and an online article by Henry Briggs.  If you would like to send a donation that will reach Megan, but don't know how to get it to her, please feel free to send your donation to Mountain View Chapel, and we will get it to Megan's family right away. 

Please make the check out to "Stu Leavitt" and mark the envelope in the lower right hand corner:  "Attn: Megan c/o PC". 

Also, please note that donations made to Megan are not donations to Mountain View Chapel and are not tax-deductible.

Thanks in advance for your generosity!

Services for Lee will be Monday, August 13th, here at the Chapel. Visitation is from 10AM to 11AM in the Sanctuary, followed by Lee's Memorial Service. There will be a luncheon in the Gym following the service. Our thoughts and prayers are with Deb and Brandon during this difficult time.
