Help Arrives For Montana Family In Seattle For Chemo
SEATTLE, Wash. - Help is pouring in for a Montana family who had their truck and many belongings stolen while in Seattle for their son's chemotherapy treatments. Karen and Jeremy Hartle of Kalispell, Mont., say they've been overwhelmed by the offers they've received since the truck was taken Tuesday outside the Ronald McDonald House in north Seattle.
The donations included everything from offers of cash and a rental car to a new car seat. The Hartles say they're grateful, but they're sheepish about receiving the help. The truck is covered by insurance, and they say there are other families staying at the Ronald McDonald House who need assistance more than they do.
Jeremy Hartle writes on his blog, "we shouldn't be the only family focused on." He asks people to direct their donations instead to places like Seattle Children's Hospital that work to fight cancer.
