Writing About Cancer AGAIN

By in Tri-Cities, WA with 0 Comments

Yes, once again I’m going to bring to my readers’ attention the story of a young kid battling the disease I despise. Before, I told you about Mathew Blacketter, and his brave battle, and eventual loss.  I know this has nothing to do with real estate, but it has to do with the communities in which we live.

Two other youngsters in the Tri-Cities are fighting rare cancers.  Aidan Zaugg, and Cooper Larson.  Cooper’s parents had an opportunity to continue treatments, but they decided they’d rather he live the last portion of his life completely free of the devastating side effects he could have endured.

Back in November, hope still held sway, and fund raisers and support were rampant.

On Friday, the Make-a-Wish Foundation came through with a great day for Cooper – he hung out with some Mariners (of the baseball variety).

I know that when we’re up against impossible situations, sometimes miracles squeeze through. Sometimes they don’t, of course, but prayer always helps.  Probably because it at least feels as of we’re doing something productive.  Offer up a few prayers when you read this, please.  They can’t hurt and they often help.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
