Cancer Society Dedicates Kevin's Lodge


When Kevin Vry died of kidney cancer in 1999, his young son Patrick was afraid no one would remember his father, but his employer, Barry Grant of US Homes, found a most appropriate way.

With the help of US Homes subcontractors and his co-workers, Grant led a drive to build Kevin's Lodge, a medical facility for children who attend Arizona Camp Sunrise, the American Cancer Society's camp for children with cancer.

The facility was dedicated Feb. 3 at the camp, which is located on the R-C Ranch just north of Kohl's Ranch on Highway 260.

Arizona Camp Sunrise offers a variety of programs for children who have or have had cancer in their families.

For more information about the camp, call Tina Peoples at (800) 865-1582.
