Subject: Request for Donation,

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Ellis family of Lockport NY and it is with a heavy heart that I do so.

The Ellis family, like so many others in our community, needs our help. In March 2012 Lehman ‘Skip’ Ellis was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer, spine cancer and also lower back, as you can imagine this diagnosis has been difficult for the family. He has been suffering through radiation and chemotherapy for the better part of year now.

Skip is a loving father of 4 children Tanya, Justin, Ashley, and Tiffany. He is also an amazing grandfather to Keirstan, Christopher, and Emily.

Skip’s wife Gale has courageously accepted the challenges her husband’s illness has put in front of her and she does so with a smile on her face each and every day. She is certified nurse’s aide and does cleaning for side work, while she and her family need help most of all she still finds it deep within herself to get up each and every day to care for her husband as well as others.

We are asking you to help us help this family as they so triumphantly come together to help each other through these trying times. Be an example in the community as the Ellis family is an example to all of us. Gale is a courageous woman however Skip’s medical bills are piling up and proving to be too much even for her. 

We hope you will join us in helping the Ellis family and donate anything for this family to raffle off at their benefit on December, 1st 2012 at Attitude’s bar and grill 616 West Avenue Lockport, NY 14094 from 1-5pm. Any and all donation would be appreciated; gift cards, merchandise/items to be put in gift baskets, etc….

Please contact Tiffany Ellis @, or 716-536-6242, 4931 Thrall Rd Lockport, NY 14094 for donation pick ups or more information.

For cash donations they can also be accepted at

Please keep Skip in your prayers.
We sincerely thank you for your time and support

Yours sincerely/faithfully,

Friends of the Family
