Family thanks community for support
In February 2011, our daughter, Sarah Daria Matthew, was diagnosed with brain cancer. At the time of her diagnosis, Sarah was a senior at Chugiak High School. Our family began a battle for her life and the community of Eagle River and Chugiak stood with us.
Sarah grew up in Eagle River since the age of 5. She attended Eagle River Elementary, Homestead Elementary, Mirror Lake Middle School and Chugiak High School. We received support from many of the staff and families associated with those schools.
The beauty of the love and kindness shown to her during this awful illness is a reflection of the loving community that Eagle River is.
Our family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the people and entities who gave Sarah and our family love and support during her illness and passing. Our initial thoughts were to try and list all of the people and entities that reached out to us, but the list would be endless.
Please know that each one of you who helped Sarah made her battle that much easier and we will be forever grateful. God bless you all.
The Matthew Family, Julius, Edna, Julia and Stephen
