Love From Above
Love From Above, a Pheasant Heaven Charities Inc. committee, began in 2015 with the dream of Tami Bachler to help those with cancer. Today, this committee helps those diagnosed, or in the process of being diagnosed, with cancer within a 50 mile radius of Hugoton. It dos so by paying utilities, medical expenses, and travel expenses for those who have to trabel for treatment.
Love From Above also provides water and snacks for wo cancer centers in Liberal, and has givin iPads to the Liberal and Garden City cancer centers for patients to occupy their time while receiving chemotherapy. It also gives bags to chemo patients filled with items to make their treatment more comfortable.
A highlight of the event was the drawing for the Limo Rides donated by Paul's Funeral Home, compliments of the Robson family. Judy and Henry Cantrell of Moscow were thrilled to be the winners! Both are cancer survivors. Our volleyball tournament brought eight teams to the court to play.
Our thanks to the Hugoton Recreation Commission for the use of the Rec Gyms where the event was held. Also, thanks to Abengoa, with several employees becoming involved and representing their company well. Most of all, thanks to all who came by to support our cancer survivors and remember those who are no longer with us. We are looking forward to our next Relay for Life next June!

Southwest Miracle, Inc. is a local non-profit organization founded in March 2009, by local residents, Jane Eisenhauer, Tracy Gutierrez and Annette Wilson. We strive to have funds available to assist people in a time of need who might be dealing with an illness or medical condition. Those funds are used in many different ways i.e. gas cards for transportation to and from medical appointments or treatment, motel and eating expense for overnight travel. Also, we have helped pay rent and utilities. We also have a share closet with various medical equipment available to loan. No money is ever given directly to a recipient, checks are made payable to whomever the money is owed. These are just a few examples of what our foundation is about.
Our funding comes strictly from fundraisers or private donations. We have an annual fundraiser in February, including a dinner, dance, and silent and live auction. Also, we help with a local car show in May every year. Using the funds from these events is how we help families throughout the year.
