Give It To Team Bobbi!

June 30, 2011

Give It To Team Bobbi!

Jet City Pizza of Marysville is joining the fight against Leukemia and Lymphoma.

Give It To Team Bobbi!

Members of the Costa Family of Marysville have joined together to form a team for the Light The Night Walk for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on September 24, 2011.

Sisters Jeralita, Rietta and Charvette Costa lost their mother Bobbi Costa to AML (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia) 10 years ago.  Joing them on Team Bobbi for a second year are Charisha Costa, Lekenzie Mortensen, Serenity Monar, Azucena Garcia and cousins Cynthia and Taylor Neuhoff and Angela and Danika Mogenson.

Jet City Pizza owner Tristan Costa is the son of Rietta Costa.  He is proud to find a way to support the team and the fight against the disease that took the life of his Grandma so suddenly at the young age of 59.

Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is a fast-growing cancer of the blood and bone marrow.  In AML, the bone marrow makes many unformed cells called blasts.  Blasts normally develop into white blood cells that fight infection.  However, the blasts are abnormal in AML.  They do not develop and cannot fight infections.  The bone marrow may also make abnormal red blood cells and platelets.  The number of abnormal cells for leukemia cells grows quickly.  They crowd out the normal red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets the body needs.

Rietta Costa said “ it was all so sudden, we didn’t even know she was sick. One day she didn’t feel well and went to the clinic. They took her by ambulance to the hospital . Within 4 days she was on total life support and then in 1 short week was gone. We had never heard of AML and she didn’t even have a chance at treatment it was so aggressive. We walk in the hopes of a cure for AML so that others can live.
In honor of Bobbi Costa,who would have been 70 this July 1st, Jet City pizza will donate 25% of every full price order Wednesdays from June 29- August 31 when you say “ Give it to Team Bobbi”

Following in his family’s philanthropic footsteps, Tristan Costa believes that the measure of true success is being able to give back to your community. Most recently he was a sponsor for the Marysville Tulalip Relay for Life, providing over $1100.00 in free pizza to the organizational meetings.
Jet City Pizza is located at 11515 State Ave Suite C Marysville WA 98271 360 653 5858

Could This Be The Most Beautiful Place In The World?

June 10, 2011

The Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful places in the country – maybe even the world.

Often it lacks the sun around here but honestly when the sun does make its appearance, there is no other place to be. One of my favorite places here is the Olympic Peninsula. Rain or shine, it doesn’t matter.   It is one of the MOST beautiful spots in Washington.  There are so many beautiful sights from the Olympic Mountains to the rainforest to the waterfalls, to the ocean.  It is definitely a must see.

Not too long ago, Tomi was an avid Twilight fan (she has since moved on to Justin Bieber) so we took a road trip from Everett to Forks (about a 2 hour drive) to visit the sites mentioned in the movie

This photo was taken at La Push, home of “Jacob”.  La Push is a small community located about 14 miles out of Forks and home to the Quileute Tribe and known for its whale watching.

If you ever get the chance I would recommend visiting the Olympic Peninsula and if you’re not from Washington, the Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful places in country!
