    Swim Meet next week

    Good afternoon, Blazers!

    We are getting ready for tonight's swim meet and excited to see everyone! 

    Next week, June 23rd, will be our final Swim Meet of the season and we are planning some special things! We will be recognizing our Seniors and have them participate in a special swim.  We love being able to do this and recognize their hard work!  We will have some special appearances from some of our Seniors that missed out last year due to Covid as well!

    Our theme for the meet will be to recognize and honor those fighting Paraganglioma Cancer.  Our own Blazer mom, Jess Dollar, is in the middle of this battle.  She was diagnosed in June of 2020. Sadly the cancer was not caught before it metastasized throughout her bones. She started chemo last summer, but it didn’t do much to help diminish her lesions, so last Fall the largest mass, which was softball size, was removed along with one of her kidneys. Because Jess’s cancer is rare there aren’t any local doctors that treat it. She started traveling to MD Anderson in Houston for treatment at the end of 2020. She has been back and forth to Houston 5 times since December for scans, surgery, consultations, and radiation treatment. Jess is weak and exhausted, but she is fighting like a champ. She travels to Houston again on the 28th to have another scan which could result in another surgery to stabilize the bones in her hip. You can follow her journey on FB or Instagram @BlessourJess

    Her GoFundMe link is www.gofundme.com/bless-our-jess .

    She also has her merchandise shop, for those interested, the shop is https://shop.spreadshirt.com/bless-our-jess/

    The Blazer family will be raising money to help her and her family during this difficult time.  A portion of the concession stand  and Spirit Wear sales on Wednesday night, June 23rd, will go to Jess Dollar.  We will also have a jar at the concession stand where you can donate as well.  

    The colors for Paraganglioma Cancer are black/white (zebra print), so let's all show our support by wearing those colors!  

    Lastly, we will be having a Fun Thursday on June 24th that will include donuts and juice! Everyone come and celebrate a great season!  Details for the end of the season party will come after the Gwinnett County Meet is completed.

    Thank you all for your support!
