We are very sad to report that there is a young man going door to door in the Las Vegas area representing himself as part of Kassidy's Army. We would NEVER go door to door asking for donations, please call the police or email us at See official fundraisers below!

Our prayers are with you all! We live in Boise (coming from Vegas 4 years ago). My mother-in-law was diagnosed on 9/7/2011 with a pontine glioma and has been receiving treatment through UCLA. She was also inoperable and did not get a biopsy due to the location in the pons. They have named the little creep "glioblastoma multiforme Grade 4". I have a blog for her at

Every brain tumor is different but it is nice to be able to learn from each other. Thank you for your blog!

Mrs. Merrit & family,

Hi, I'm Trisha, the new treasurer for Centennial's National Honor Society. And my fellow officers and I have been talking and we would love to help out with the fundraising.

We were thinking that we could sell these bracelets and shirts around Centennial when school started if you would let us & we're coming up with more ideas. We'll let you know when we come up with something. <3
