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.
