Club of the Week: 4/27/2018

Posted by

This week we pay tribute to the “Most Caring Club”. This Club saw our recent promotion with “Animal Friends” and contacted us about how they, too, were seeking to find a new dog for one of their Club members who is struggling with cancer. We were so inspired by their “rally to the cause” that we’re happy to name them the Club of the Week! Congratulations DreamTeam!

Here is a what Judi, the Club’s Leader, had to say:

“One day Carol revealed that she had lost her only companion, her Great Dane! Her friend who helped her find the strength for walks when the chemo was tough going, someone to cuddle.  She disclosed that she would love another dog in her life, but couldn’t because she couldn’t be sure that she could afford the cost of her medical bills as well as the dog’s needs As a team we decided to try to raise money together to help her achieve her wish and set a crowdfunding page in her honor.”

We are diverse team of individuals that have been thrown together unexpectedly through tripeaks. We are more than a Club, we are a community. We have become friends through this game.  We have several team members that are, unfortunately, struggling with cancer or ill health. This is where as a team we feel we are unique. We almost feel that we have been thrown together as a group by fate, to support each other, like it was meant to be.

This is how we became aware of Carol’s struggles in life with cancer.

Carol is a long term team member who has to undergo chemo therapy for the rest of her life. Carol faces her struggles with her head held high, and is one of our most positive and inspirational team members. One day Carol revealed that she had lost her only companion, her Great Dane! Her friend who helped her find the strength for walks when the chemo was tough going, someone to cuddle.  She disclosed that she would love another dog in her life, but couldn’t because she couldn’t be sure that she could afford the cost of her medical bills as well as the dog’s needs. As a team we decided to try to raise money together to help her achieve her wish and set a crowdfunding page in her honor.

We are TriPeaks family and that’s what you do with family, you help out in anyway you can.”

Best of luck to DreamTeam, and to Carol! We hope you find the perfect dog to take you for walks!

  1. I truly enjoyed reading about your club and the very special interpersonal dynamic that goes on amongst all of you. You are indeed a very caring and empathic club.

    It is such a great thing to know you can count on the care and support from each of your team members when you are up against some trying times. The best thing is that it seems all of you are well aware of how lucky you are!

  2. What a blessing that Carol has such a wonderful family of angels supporting her, and each other. Your cause is one that is dear to my heart. Please contact me via email – Dlshumway68@gmail.com if I may contribute. You all are perkfectly tikiriffic!

  3. As many who will read one of the best Team spotlights ever. I too have had cancer and was given months to live. full treatmeants of chemo and radiation all my hair and weighing 70 pounds was given the words no one wants to hear Im sorry we have done all we can. 3 months they gave me. Most would accept and prepare for thier funeral. Carol dont give up and there are other options. Im in remission and have been for almost 3 years. CBD oils was my cure. I told those Doctors weak and frankly frightening looking with the determination of a 100 ppl ” Says who?” Doctors the test pinky. I replied really and you are wonderful but my maker, father above is the only one who decides that. Thank you and now release me. By Gods grace an RN i worked with as im a RN too suggested CBD oils. And omg it WORKED.
    Enough of me lol trying to say that this club is more than a bunch playingba great game tripeak Solitaire. Its like you already knew fate or you were all put together for a reason. I believe you were. Angels working to play but truly care about each otber. Its beautiful in everyway. I love my leader as im tbe co leader but wish we could be as close and supportive of one anotber as you all are. And you will get a wonderful pup who be by yourside to help ease the pain of the brutal treatments.
    All of you I stand and applaud you all! May all of you be blessed and Carol to be cured.

  4. LOVE reading about the clubs. I’ve been in 3 & none had any chats going on at all. I’m not this amazing player bit I LOVE this game, don’t have extra $ to spend on it but one day I sure hope to enjoy with a little extra, have had a rough year with each month bringing it’s share to the table – flu, my car died completely, broke my arm at wrist, had surgery, then experienced a health scare this month but hopefully getting closer to better days … lost phone service as well as misplaced my phone last couple weeks 😣 … but this game is the only one I play & so since I found my phone this weekend & am using WiFi at least 2 days I’M READY TO PLAY! Love me some Tripeaks!
    Keep up the great work clubs & enjoy playing! I’ll keep reading about all the greats & playing the game too!

  5. God’s blessings and healings to each and everyone of you. You’ll forever be in my prayers.You have awesome friendships and togetherness .Your all amazing.God bless you all. 😊🤗♡♡♡
