Greetings,

Penton Owners Group member, and all around good guy Ollie Martin is in a rough section of trail, and could surely use some thoughts and prayers sent his way. It is hard to ever think of a time when Ollie wasn't busy with a project and in a jovial mood with a big smile on his face, as I am sure those who know him would attest to.

The link below will take you to a photo of Al and Ollie Martin, a father and son team of unlimited abilities and tireless energy who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes at countless POG events and on POG projects.

Thank you for sending cards and keeping us in your thoughts & prayers!
For those that don't know, Ollie has been fighting lung cancer since being diagnosed in July of 2017. He had tumors in both lungs. The chemo & radiation had eliminated the one in his left lung and greatly shrunken the one in the right lung. Unfortunately the one in the right lung at it's largest was against his rib cage and had actually spread into his rib. He was not strong enough to under go any additional treatments so was placed under hospice care. He is at home with the family providing most of his care. He is currently bedfast and fading quickly.
