Crisis in Bayview

Recently, Jerry Berry, owner of the Captain's Wheel restaurant was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. This type is one of the most virulent cancers.

Unlike restaurants in the big city, resort town places such as this are marginal operations at best. They make money in the Summer and lose it back in the winter months. Jerry has Medicare, but no supplemental insurance. Some of his Chemotherapy drugs are not covered by Medicare and will cost $3000.00 per week out of pocket.

Friends of Jerry Berry are banding together for "Love and Life" December 10 at the Captain's Wheel in Bayview from 7:00 to 11:00 P.M. There will be several fund raising events including a silent auction, live auction, raffle and a $10.95 buffet.

Entertainment will be provided by Whiskey Rock. An account has been set up for donations at the Hayden Branch of Wells Fargo Bank. We urge all of you to help if you can... Jerry's survival may hinge upon your help...
