Thanks Rockaway!

Dear Editor,

I want to give a big thank you to the entire Rockaway community who supported my fundraising yard sale this past Sunday. I held a yard sale on Beach 149th and Rockaway Beach Boulevard to benefit a dear friend of mine who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and was given only a few months to live without an aggressive, dangerous and expensive surgery. He has a wife and six-year old daughter and despite the fact that they are not from our Rockaway community, we had an incredible outpour of love and generosity. We were completely overwhelmed by the heart of this community. I cannot express how it felt as people drove up in their cars, or walked over with their families, just to donate. I offer a big thank you also to Rockaway Wish for their more than generous donation. The Scott family was overwhelmed to hear of the outcome of the yard sale and feel blessed even in this difficult time. Thank you all for your support and prayers, we believe in miracles!

RACHEL SELMAN
