Wish list

A wish:

To our highly connected athletic friends, would you ask your favorite champion to send something to Soren, or visit if they’re in the area? He just got a picture from Tom Izzo, a RedSox baseball autographed by Jacoby Ellsbury, a picture from Bruin Brad Marchand, and lots, lots more!

Soren is also a fanatical quarter collector thanks to Bubba (Eric). He needs the following states/territories to complete his collection:
1) Vermont, 2) Arkansas, 3) Iowa, 4) California, 5) Kansas, 6) New Mexico, 7) Hawaii 8) DC 9) Guam 10) American Samoa.
thanks from Soren! His collection is complete and he put it together proudly!

      1. Ayrn, sorry if you didn’t get my voicemail. The fruit was WONDERFUL and a great idea. Devoured by Soren and family alike. Soren just learned to swallow pills (we are so proud!!) from the child life specialist, who uses candy of various sizes. He’s worked his way up to ~M&M size, not quite jelly beans yet.

    I want to play with Harlan at the pool!! Let me know some afternoons/evenings that would work best for you guys. Sending all my love!

    Let me know if it is okay to stop by on Sunday afternoon for a few minutes to drop off some items for you guys. I have read the wish list… Let me know if there is something that you need over other items and I can get it for you. I can also do a target run if you need anything else. Email or text me and let me know. Thinking about your guys 🙂


    1. Hi Jess, Sunday could be tough for seeing Soren but I hope to be able to meet you for a few minutes. Erika might actually hit you up to stay with you Sun night, depending on treatment side-effects. Target/grocery runs could be very helpful. Text us when the time comes.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I would be more than happy to help out with your Corgi’s. Just let me know.

    Hi, Vaughan– I’m going grocery shopping tomorrow (Sat. 8/3) and will pick up Clif bars aplenty. I’ll also pick up apples + melon and drop it off at your house. I’ll check in on the other site, too.

    On other notes, we’re around all weekend and love dogs and can also hang out with Harlan. Give a call if this fits the bill: 603-749-1961


  5. Carrie Barron says:

    I am so incredibly sorry to hear this news; my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I would love to help in any way needed- I am a huge animal lover so I can help with the corgi’s anytime- please don’t hesitate to let me know- day or night!


  6. Laurie Palmer says:

    Hi Vaughn and Family,
    My family and I would be more than happy to take your Corgi’s into our home and be part of our family if this would make it easier and we would love to have them here. We have 2 aussies, Sidney who is almost 10 years old, Dagen 6 months and Annie our Corgi who is 3 years old. We have plenty of room in our home and hearts for them. Of course you know what would be best for them. Just throwing it out there as a very do-able option and hoping to reduce your juggling act. Thoughts and prayers again to all of you!

    Vaughn & Erika, Do you need any help with yardwork? I like gardening (even weeding) and would be happy to mow sometimes as well.


  8. Jessica says:

    Re: portable healthy food…what is your set-up at the Boston end: do you need stuff you can eat while driving, or out of a cooler, or in a hotel room with microwave, or from a backpack, or what?


  9. Amanda DeBlauw says:

    Could you email me an address to send a donation to? I’m so sorry to hear that your family is going through this. Praying for you.


  10. Kim Snow says:

    I have some quarters for Soren! I have New Mexico, DC and Vermont. I’ll get them to you and keep looking for the others.

    I know an amazing woman who works at the Boston Bruins. She pulled together a huge care package of Bruins stuff – including a rally towel and signed pic of Marchand. I am getting it tomorrow night and will give it to Jen Goldberg or leave at GP.
    I’m also waiting on an action figure from a friend in the WWE. But he is traveling so could take longer.
