ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING is extremely proud to announce this year’s 8th Annual Paint-It-Forward Charity recipient, The Magno Family.
Nominated by the Michael Hoefflin Foundation, the Magno family profile is made up of a mom, dad, two brothers (11 and 5 years old) and Brittany (17 years old). Brittany was diagnosed with Brain Cancer on March 29, 2007. A pure-cell germinoma was discovered at the base of her brain. She has been through surgery for the partial removal of the tumor, followed by chemotherapy and radiation therapy. She is now in remission and has recovered from the combined effects of all her treatments. Brittany has an annual MRI screening to be sure that her cancer has not returned. At this time Brittany is a cheerleader at Canyon High School and is planning on attending college. Brittany and her family are very active in the community and will often speak and participate in events. As you know, life is not easy for normal families, but for a family that has a child with medical needs all the time, painting a house does not have a priority and takes a back seat.
This year we decided to announce our give-away on Valentine’s Day to reflect the spirit of love that we have for our community and those that support us all year long by trusting us to be their painting company.
After calling the Magno family to let them know that they won, we received this email from them: “Your call this morning was truly an answered prayer. I started to work on our house, but was having a difficult time in finding the time and money to do the work properly. Again, thank you ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING. God Bless, Elm & Cheryl Magno”
Stay tuned… for the after pictures and stories of how everyone volunteered their time to bring some happiness to the Magno family. We hope to brighten their day with a new paint makeover.
We are honored to have the opportunity once again to “Paint It Forward” to those who are working through difficult hardships by providing them with painting services and adding some brightness to their lives. The Paint-It-Forward charity giveaway was started in 2005 by the ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING employees to be able to give back to the community in a way that seemed appropriate. We wanted to be able to help those in need by using the talents we have been given. Each year ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING’s staff and customers consider all the worthy nominations that are sent in and they then vote on the family or organization that they feel is the most deserving.
