Nosara area residents are trying to raise money for the treatment of the son of a popular local couple.
The boy, Jacob Cameron, is the son of David and Angie Cameron of Nosara. He is being treated at the Children’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado, because he has a tumor on his brain stem and may have only a year to live.
Costly radiation treatments offers the possibility of shrinking the tumor, giving the child more years to live, as well as a better quality of life. The parents are now living in Broomfield. Colorado, to be with their son.
July 16, a week from tomorrow, from noon to 3:30 p.m., local businesses Marlin Bill’s, the Gilded Iguana, L’Acqua Viva, La Luna, and Rancho Tico are headlining a poker run fundraiser followed by a silent auction and raffle held at Marlin Bill’s. Participants may pick up an entry form at any of the above locations. In addition, the Frog Pad will be selling raffle tickets and will have entry forms for pickup.

All participants must return with their cards to Marlin Bill’s by 3:30 p.m. where the top three hands will win prizes. This will be followed by the raffle and silent auction.
