Gary & Wanda Smith (16540L)
Region Five Directors
November of 2022 brought many changes to the Smith Family. I was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Cancer. It is very rare with only about 12,000 new cases a year in the United States. It is in my lung, liver and three vertebrae in my back. This cancer cannot be cured but we are told that it can be controlled. I received my second treatment on January 9, 2023. The current treatment is an injection every 28 days. I will probably have scans of some type every three months to monitor how well the treatment is working.
Now that you know the biggest change that 2022 brought in our life, we know that God has everything under control. God has already answered so many prayers.
After receiving my second injection on January 9th, we headed to Tampa, Florida for the Florida RV Super Show. Our early team of volunteers were Greg & Margie Harrop as co-host, Carl & Gayle Webber, Gene & Grace Failmezger, and Steve & Joanne Wyble. This team worked hard preparing for 211 Newmar Family Coaches the week before the RV Show began.
Wanda & I want to thank all the volunteers helping with parking, registration, the Klub Store, morning coffee and donuts and just being there when needed. This is the second largest event for the Newmar Kountry Klub and without volunteers it would not happen.
We want to thank Newmar Corporation for their support of technicians working on our coaches,
for Norbert Drust’s Training sessions presented, and for the Newmar executives sharing and taking questions from attendees.
Thanks to North Trail RV for the great coach display and Klub support, not only at the Super Show but throughout the year for the Florida Klub Chapters and Region Five.
In closing Wanda & I want to thank all of you for your prayers and support as we face the challenging times of medical treatments. Our intent is not to miss any Klub activities, naturally with Gods help and guidance and your continued prayers.
