70th member going to be in MSG territory

Recommended Posts

OK, the title pretty much says it. My name is Phil harley and I'm a 70th explorers member who's daughter will be visiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital from time to time. My current costume is an ANH tusken & I have a set of phase 1 clone on the workbench waiting to be finished. I'm based out of Wichita, KS which allows me to troop with both the 70th and Star Garrisons. I got the idea to get on the boards so I can see when & if there are any events in the Memphis area that will coincide with our trips out your way. I was also wondering if there are any members in the Memphis area that would be up for a few hours at St. Jude for the kids. After all, we are the bad guys who do good. Hope to hear from y'all soon.

Hey Phil,

Glad to have visitors from other garrisons. Do you know around what dates you will be in the area? Are you up for a little extra travel to get to events or just things in the Memphis area?

Hey Phil, welcome! My first comment is I hope your daughter is okay. St. Judes is a great place, and one of the charities my wife and I support.

If you have an opportunity for us to troop, just give us some lead time and dates, and I will do the best I can to make it there.

Thanks,

jw

Well, We're going to be out that way the end of this month with really nothing to do from 1-31 thru 2-3 in between appointmentsand such. After that, we don't know yet. As soon as I find out, I'll be back on here. If things stay as they are, with trips every 6-8 weeks, we'll be back out that way around Mid March.

Thank you all for the welcomes & well wishes for my daughter. She was diagnosed rith Retinoblastoma, a cancer that affects the eyes of children birth - 6 years old. she was diagnosed on 12-4 & we were at St Jude the next week. the cancer advanced so far, so fast, the had to remove her left eye. when we come back that way the end of the month, they're doing a lumbar puncture & spinal tap to make sure no cancer got from the eye into the socket itself. & on 2-4 we get to spend all day at the oculist getting fitted for her prosthetic.

I'm calling patient services tomorrow to see who I would talk to about setting up a troop for the kids & what all that entails. Once I get all of the info, I'll pass it on here and get the contact info to the command staff so you guys can troop there more often if you like

When I first got the mask, she wouldn't go near it now she knows that Daddy is in there and whenever she sees Tuskens on the movies she points & lets the whole room know that that's her daddy.
