Transocean Leader and J.W. McLean Join Forces to Raise Donations for Sick Co-Worker

When Steven Wright, a Welder on the J.W. McLean, was diagnosed with cancer in May 2010, co-workers on the J.W. McLean and Transocean Leader joined together to collect donations for Steven and his family. The funds were presented to a surprised and grateful Steven in September, who submitted a note asking us to thank his colleagues.

“I am writing to you in the hope that I could say a big thank you to the people onboard the J.W. McLean and Transocean Leader,” Steven said in a note, which then summarized his story about his cancer diagnosis and treatments. “When my colleagues presentedme with money they had been collecting, I was totally surprised and overwhelmed. I could not believe their generosity. This is really appreciated because as you can imagine money is tight and this will definitely help through this difficult time, and allow me to concentrate on my recovery, so if it is possible could we put this piece in the next magazine as I just want to say thanks to everyone concerned and a special thanks to my partner who has been a rock for me.”

Thanks to everyone on the J.W. McLean and Transocean Leader who contributed to Steven during a time of need.
