We are the “Rogue Waterski Team” of Southern Oregon and we currently have a waterski club with 10 families.  We have been deeply saddened by the loss of our youngest member, Dylan Robert McNeil.  Dylan became very ill with bacterial meningitis. This type of infection is very aggressive and in Dylan’s case progressed too rapidly for successful medical intervention.  Dylan passed away one day shy of his 2nd birthday.  This was so sudden and completely devastating for the McNeil Family.  They are like family to all of us, and we are all struggling as to why this happened.  Dylan will always be remembered for his BIG smile and infectious giggle. 

Our hearts go out to the family at this time.   The McNeil’s are two of the most genuine people we have ever known.  They also have a 6 year old son and are absolutely amazing parents.  Both Marcus and Sabrina McNeil are members of the American Water-Ski Association and they skied in their first competitive tournaments last year.   They are very involved in the water-ski community and are extremely passionate about the sport.  They have huge hearts and would do anything for anyone, but right now they need our help.  We feel that one way to help out right now is to ease the financial burden for them during this tragic time as they try to start healing. 

We have organized a raffle within the waterski community, in which all proceeds will be given to the McNeil family to help with these unexpected expenses.  Your support is greatly appreciated and we thank each and every one of you that is able to help out at this time.
