San Tan Valley Area Information

Today, Dec 10th, started off as any ordinary day for Amber Murphy. She had to get her 6 year old daughter ready for school, help her 3 year old son get ready and prepare to go visit her husband, Dustin Murphy.  Dustin was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer 3 years ago and is currently at Lund Hospice. The only other thing Amber had to prepare for was an interview.   She had been contacted by Gradient Gives Back Foundation and they let her know that she was one of the finalists for an award. The Gradient Gives Back Foundation was formed to make immediate and real differences in the lives of families who have fallen on hard times and the Murphy's are one of those families.

Playing with your dogs in the backyard may not seem like a big deal, but it is to Kyle Carey, who had brain surgery three weeks ago. "My speech was so bad that a two-minute conversation would last about 10 to 20 minutes, with me trying to get out the words out," Carey said.

In 2004, Maricopa County’s Parks and Recreation Department began implementing San Tan Mountain Regional Park’s Master Plan. The Master Plan called for a main park entry, and proposed two secondary trailheads to provide additional access to the park.

Wettstein is leading this anti-decay movement by giving away dollars and glowing electric toothbrushes in exchange for cavity-provoking candy.
