    Jodene Phenicie has colon cancer!
    She is a phenomenal shooter of many years. She is in the Michigan Hall of Fame. She has not only shot, but worked at numerous shoots. Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, and Florida just to name a few.
    She is starting chemo and radiation soon so that her tumor will shrink. Then doctors are then going to remove it. They are doing it in this order, because they believe that she will not have to have a colostomy bag for the rest of her life.
    She does not have health insurance! When her insurance became over $800 per month, she had to drop it as it was no longer doable and still pay her living expenses.
    Through the years, many of our trapshooting friends become family, as Jody has definitely become part of mine. I am trying to help support Jody in any way that can. Jackson County Gun Club and many of her friends are putting on a fundraiser shoot for her Saturday, April 6th. ALL proceeds will help to pay for Jody’s medical bills!
    If you’d like to be a part in any way, please contact me or send silent auction items to me at :
    Jacque Snellenberger, 87 Thompson Blvd., Coldwater, MI 49036
    OR send cards directly to her at Jodene Phenicie 1338 W. Maumee-Apt. 11, Adrian, MI 49221
    Jody is NOT computer literate.. lol..but I do show her all of the great well wishes I receive for her here and on my facebook. She is always amazed that so many people care. It certainly seems to boost her spirits and she always tells me who she received cards from when we talk. It matters!!!!

    To All Trapshooters who are Children of God,

    Please begin by saying a prayer for Jodi, during the prayer ask our Heavenly Father the following question: Lord, how much should I give Jodi? Then, be silent, and listen to the Holy Spirit who resides inside you, for your personal answer...

    Next, grab your checkbook and write a check to Jodi and mail it to either:

    Jodene Phenicie-1334 W. Maumee St., Adrian, MI 49221
    or
    Jax Snellenberger-87 Thompson Blvd, Coldwater, MI 49036

    Cash will help ease the worry associated with not knowing how she will be able to cover her expenses. IMHO helping to eliminate that very worry, will help Jodi the most, to Focus Her Energy on HEALING.

    To everyone who did this, or will do this, my most sincere - Thank you and God Bless you!!!

    Jodi, I am praying for you every day...I believe in you...focus your energy on healing.

    peace.

    Carl

    I've known Jody for a long time. From when I used to come to Michigan for the Fall Five man team shoots to seeing her working at many of the shoots I attend. She's always has a smile and a good word for me where ever we meet.

    It's time to give her a hand. You're in my thoughts, Jodene.

    Jim-any items that others might be willing to purchase. I'm putting in free shooting lessons from Dad and me. Others are donating jewelry, shooting supplies, shells, paintings, etc.. OR even a $20 check with Jodene's name on it sent to either her or myself. Whichever is the easiest and works best for you!

    Jax thanks for the post, just remember there are alot of snowbirds in Florida who never even use a computer, it will be spring before they find out what is going on. You have a shoot and my two dads and i will be there. Or contact the clubs around the state and have special events connected to there programs. Maybe a special event at the state shoot, like the pita does out here for breast cancer. If they could handle my wedding in mason, there is is a ton of options there for raising money, let my wife or i know, would love to help, The Stadlers & Kelleys

    If you think people from your local gun club will help out or attend the shoot, please pass out the Jody Shoot Flyer. I have some already printed up and am willing to mail copies to you. Please message me with the address and I will send them out this week so you can put some out as you attend shoots. St. Joe County in Indiana is already covered! Thanks again.

    Most of we trapshooters are conservatives and tea party type folks. We always bitch and moan about lazy people who just sit around live off the dole, contributing little to the human condition.

    We say that we will be glad to take good care of those who deserve it. Jodene is one of those. We need to take care of her.

    Give up a flats worth of bucks, or what ever you can afford, to the cause ......... she's worth every penny and you'll barely miss it. If you can't then we understand. Say a prayer. Light a candle. Send her your energy. Cross your fingers. Rub Buddha's belly. Make a Wish. Throw a penny in a fountain. Do a good deed. Pay it forward. Rub Lincoln's nose. Rescue a puppy ........ Do something positive with Jody in mind.
