    In case anyone is on this forum is interested they are having raffle to raise money for the Carter Family. This little boy (Wilks Carter) is 10 months old and the doctors confirmed this week that Wilks has Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) & it is in the bone marrow and it affects his skin. Chemo started this week. He will have treatments once a week for 6 wks, then be re-evaluated. Treatments are one syringe & only last a few minutes, so that's a blessing. Treatments will last at least one year. Wilks, Casey (Dad), Rebecca (Mom), & Lillian (Sister) are now beginning a long journey... See this link for more info on his condition and periodic updates: http://www.bullnettlenews.com/....aspx

    Thank yall so much for the prayers and contributions. It is amazing how many great people there are in the fishing and hunting community. Please continue to lift them up in your prayers. Your prayers are working. God has heard them and answered them. They got word this weekend that the cancer is NOT in the bone marrow! What a victory... Keep looking up.. Thanks!
