Official Banks Family Statement -

Sunday, May 10, 2009 –

Our father Dennis James Banks had a heart attack on Friday, May 8, 2009. The exceptional medical staff at the Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix acted swiftly which resulted in his life being saved; the cardiac doctors performed a common heart procedure where two stints were placed into his main heart artery.  On Saturday, he was transferred out of ICU and is expected to make a full recovery.

We are forever grateful to Vernon Foster, dad’s longtime friend, for taking care of dad and not leaving his side until the danger passed.

We also want to acknowledge the hundreds of calls and emails we have been receiving from around the world. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and … even the occasional joke to bring him a smile. We pass every single one of them on to him so thank you!

Sincerely Yours,

The Banks Children

P.S.  Lots of folks have asked where they can send Get Well cards, cards can be mailed to:

10038 Sugar Point Dr. NW
