A Special National Championship for Phil Mattison from Delavan

Tuesday, September 03, 2013
My Dad, Phil Mattison, is signed up for the E Nationals at Geneva. Most likely, at 81, he will be the oldest skipper. 
 
He is also going through Chemo, for the second time, for his rare blood cancer, Waldenstrom's Macroglobulenemia. 
 
He continues to race his E on Delavan, with the help of many family members.
 
My Dad and Mom, Gail Lund, who was from Geneva, met at an Inland regatta on Geneva, being introduced by Ed and Bernice Treis.  A fun fact, too.
