That last name may ring a bell for some who keep
up with the kids we work with, as it should! Abigal Myslivecek
is the sister of Daniel Myslivecek who went Elk Hunting in October
of 2005 on his "wish" trip.
The Myslivecek family was dealt something we all fear of the
kids we work with, of losing Daniel Melanoma just last summer.
As if that wasn't bad enough. Thursday Night (4-5-07) B4K received
a called from Daniels dad, Dean with another blow. Their 10-year
old Daughter, Abigal, has been diagnosed recently with Apastic
Anemia which is a rare condition where your body stops producing
enough new blood cells, resulting in fatigue and leaving patients
at much higher risks of infections and uncontrolled bleeding.
The good news in all this is that thanks to advances in treatments
and medicines the positive outcome of this disease is very high!
Through a mutual friend, Abigal has been given a Turkey hunt
in San Angelo TX with Jerry Golf (former Heavyweight Boxer) and
Knockout Hunting Adventures, May 3rd-6th 2007. To make the story
even better, Abigal has chosen to use a bow, which was given to
Daniel shortly before his departure from us, but was never able
to shoot because of his condition upon receiving the bow.
The only problem is the family can't afford the transportation
costs to Texas and reluctantly Dean, contacted B4K asking for
help. He hated to do it after everything we did for Daniel, but
we reminded him that is why we are here! B4K has set up all the
necessary travel arraignments and wish Abigal and the rest of
the family the best! This hunt will also be filmed and featured
on Jerry's "Knockout! Hunting Adventures" which airs
on the MEN'S channel.
Dean called while still they were still down there telling me
they had blast on the trip and wanted to let me know that Abigal
was able to harvest a nice bird, with a bow, on film on Saturday
May 5th! The ranch also worked out a deal to have the other 2
siblings hunt as well and everyone was successful!!!! Dean said
the entire trip was great and memorable and the entire family
was thankful for everything that has taken place in a combined
effort with Kickapoo Outfitters and Benefit4Kids. He will be sending
me pictures soon at which time I will post for everyone to see.
Dean also told me some good news about Abigal's condition. It
seems that the treatment is working great and her blood cells
counts are remaining up and there is an even more positive outlook
now! Please keep Abigal and the entire Myslivecek family in your
prayers, as they are not out of the woods yet.
Dean let us know that her hunt from earlier this month will air
on the MEN'S Channel on Dish Network, on Memorial Day 2007! If
you get the MEN's Channel look up "Knockout Hunting Adventures"
with Jerry Goff on Memorial Day and you will see this young lady
harvest her first turkey, using her brother, Daniel's, Bow! Congratulations
Abigal on a nice bird!
