— Heather’s Cup aids Ellyana’s health battle

There’s truly a sense of community and caring in our area. Last weekend was living proof.

The fourth annual Heather’s Cup was held at Chestnut Ridge High School on Nov. 4 in honor of Heather Miller, a beautiful young girl who passed away in 2010 from Ewings sarcoma.

Heather’s Cup is held each year to raise money for Heather’s Haven and a local child and family in need.

Our daughter, Ellyana, was the local child who benefited from this year’s event, and it is important for community members to know just how much we appreciate and commend their efforts.

Eight youth football teams participated in the tournament and were excellent, respectable representations of the families we have in our area. Special thanks to the teams from Chestnut Ridge, Ferndale Area, Westmont, Northern Bedford, Meyersdale Area, Everett Area, Hollidaysburg Area and Tussey Mountain.

Food, money, gift baskets, time and much more were donated by schools, businesses, churches, groups and families far and wide. Everyone made us feel welcome and supported – the prayer circle was beyond words and left us absolutely speechless.

As we continue to seek medical treatment for Elly’s cardiac, GI and vision problems, we know she has a team of well-wishers around her. We just can’t thank you enough for your support and prayers.

This event means more to us than you will ever know.

In Heather’s memory, we are reminded of one important thing: FROG – Fully Rely on God!

Nicole, Eric and Elly Dull
