Mother and daughter share a moment together while wearing the t-shirt that will raise $1 million dollars
by Doug Robinson “Mom is sick. Mom is really
sick and I want to do what I can,” comments daughter Debby, as tears flowed down her cheeks. “She loves her grandkids so incredibly much. She would do anything for her kids and grandkids and never expect anything in return. She has supported my family in more ways that I can put into words.”
“Mom was diagnosed with ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease last spring,” commented Debby Yennaco Peretz of Windham. “Since learning of mom’s battle with cancer, we have made it our mission to raise one million dollars during 2011.” Debby, inspired by her mother Carol Yennaco’s battle with ALS, has established a charitable organization called: MISSION, 1 WORLD, 1 LIFE, 1 YOU, 1 HUGE DIFFERENCE in efforts to raise the money for their goal.
“Besides her family and politics, my mom loves to play her Solitaire every day, and collecting sand dollars on the beach in Naples, Florida! My mom’s greatest hobby is collecting her thousands and thousands of sand dollars that she finds while strolling along the beach of her second home. I even made her a sand dollar bag to collect all her latest finds in. She is so proud of her sand dollars. She loves sending the grandkids sand dollar care packages whenever she is in Florida and the grandkids get excited every time they receive another sand dollar package in the mail. Pretty funny, but yet, we will all have wonderful memories from our sand dollar collections.” And the tears became bigger and bigger. Tears interrupted Debby’s speech. Debby hurt as she talked about her mom who had been recently diagnosed with ALS, or more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Cancer does not care if you are a nice person, nor does it care if you are a bad person. Cancer does not care if you go to church or do not go to church. Cancer does not have a conscience. Cancer only kills people we love. Sometimes drugs kill the cancer, and
sometimes the drugs taken do not kill the cancer. However, when the “C” word enters into the lives of those we love, we all fight back, attack, and do what we can to combat the deadly disease head-on. Those affected with ALS usually do not develop until after age 50, according to the ALS Association Website (www.alsa.org
). Persons with ALS have a loss of muscle strength and coordination that eventually gets worse. This eventually makes one unable to do routine tasks such as going up steps, getting out of a chair, or swallowing. Breathing or swallowing muscles may be the first muscles affected. As the disease gets worse, more muscle groups develop problems. ALS does not affect the senses (sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch), bladder or bowel function, or a person’s ability to think or reason. Symptoms include: Difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, gagging, choking, muscle cramping, eventual paralysis, and speech problems, claims the Website. And there is no cure.
In an effort to raise funds for research, Debby and her 1.1.11 committee has designed “green” shirts for infants, toddlers, men, and women. Their movement is commitment to raising $1 million dollars in 2011. T-shirts may be purchased for $11.11, plus shipping, at www.1-1-11mission.com
. “Mom was so excited and
maybe even a bit surprised when she found out that I started my 1.1.11 mission to help find a cure for her horrible disease. This is now my life’s mission. To find a cure for ALS and help millions of families battling this horrible disease like my family is while sharing the Million Dollar proceeds with other foundations such as MS, Breast Cancer and Children’s with Cancer. I am truly lucky to have had such a fabulous role model that I try to live up to every day of my life,” says Debby. For more information on how

I am a beautiful female 5 year old Torti with lush black and brown fur. Like most cats, I am curious and do enjoy exploring my surroundings once I acclimate to a new
space. I’ve been here for a few months and it took me a while to come out of my shell, but I am ready for my new home. I am not a lap cat, but I am a great companion and
want your love and attention. And when I’m happy or want more attention, I’ll be sure to meow and tell you! Please be patient with me though as I adjust to my new home. Like all of the pets here at the
shelter, I am spayed/neutered, microchiped, and up to date on all of my vaccines. Come adopt me today.

Humane Society Hours ADOPT-A-PET
I think my previous owner was a Star Wars fan and named me after Hans Solo, which is okay with me because I’m smart and handsome just like him! I’m just 2 years old and a happy and playful guy who loves attention! I’ve lived with dogs before and don’t mind the other
cats here that live in the “Bachelor Pad” with me. If you adopt me or one of the other adult cats here at the shelter between October 8th and18th, you will receive $25 off our
adoption fees! There are many great cats here and the shelter is discounting the adoption
fees to help us find new homes. I can wait to meet my new person (or family) and please
know you don’t have to be a Star Wars fan to love and appreciate me!

Dean Tibbetts spends every day manning operations at PSNH’s Schiller Station, helping power the Miss Wakefi eld Diner. And after a hard day at work, he’s been known to recharge with a cup of coffee and a slice of cherry pie in his favorite booth at – where else – the Miss Wakefi eld Diner. So, perhaps it’s fair to ask…
is cherry pie a renewable ENERGY SOURCE?
