Our 2005 recipient is 14-year-old Chelsie Cayford, who has a brain tumor and has undergone three brain surgeries. $20,200.00 was given to Chelsie, plus family and personal gifts of interest.
Chelsie also will receive the surprise $500.00 Christmas gift in 2005. Chelsie was quoted in last year's Idaho Statesman as saying, "Kids who are sick need to know that people care, you don't want people to feel sorry. Do something fun to lighten up the day, something they can remember."
