Ms. Patty (Sprague) was diagnosed on Thursday with a large tumor on her brain.  The doctors are very optimistic about the success of removing the tumor and the surgery will be on October 16th at Roswell Park Hospital. Ms Patty will be not be able to return to teaching for 4 to 6 weeks.

Patty has been a part of AAB for over twenty years and is truly family to us all.  All of us at AAB want to support Patty and her family at this very difficult time.  Hopefully, all of us can support the Go Fund Me.   Any amount would be greatly appreciated. We will also be asking families to participate in meal preparation which can also be done on line.  Dinner can be dropped off at the Academy or at her home.  And lastly, anyone living in the Buffalo Hertel Avenue area that can help with driving her daughter to and from classes please let me know.  

Most importantly of course, your prayers and good thoughts are needed most.  Please keep Patty and her whole family in your  hearts and prayers.


Love, Ms. Maris
