UPDATE: More Challenges. Due to Katie Grace's medical condition, the Groebner Family will now be forced to sell their home in order to move away from the live stock animals that put Katie Grace at risk for the Asperigillus mold. The next step is to see if the city wants to buy back or forgive the agreement on the house so please pray about that for the Groebner family! Your support has helped them so much emotionally so let's keep lifting this family up! Please continue to donate. Everyone's got 5! Tiana~
UPDATE: June 14, 2014 - Katie Grace is an 11 year old Hero who just received a miraculous heart-lung transplant at Stanford Hospital after surviving Pulmonary Hypertension for 6 years! She had been on Oxygen Therapy and IV Medication 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for many years. Katie Grace now needs time to recover. It will be a long road ahead, but she has tremendous strength, courage and faith. She has the best medical care, is surrounded with love and is covered in prayer from across the world. In the meantime, the family has lost it's income due to their needing to be with Katie Grace, so they are really in need of financial support.
This God loving, awe inspiring family has survived many years despite extraodinary financial and medical challenges. A hardship tough enough to break the strongest of families, but not the Groebner's! They are a kind, loving, selfless family bound in faith and love and they will get through this too, thanks to the generous donations and support from people like you who have followed their amazing journey.
The Groebner family now needs to spend their time focusing on Katie Grace's recovery over the next 6 months, so any donations to currently help lift their financial burden for food and lodging, would be greatly appreciated. The family will also require help to maintain their basic family needs such as housing, medical, dental care, transportation and other personal needs. The car needs repair and the van needs a new tranmission. Kathy broke a tooth on their way to the hospital for Katie Grace's transplant and they have no dental insurance. Thanks to all of you for the outpouring of support, your generous donations and for covering the family with prayers! Let's help to lift this family up financially so they can continue to focus their energy on The Amazing Katie Grace:) Tiana~
The Groebner family sold their home in Minnesota and drove out to California to be close to Stanford in hopes that they might be able to maintain Katie Grace longer then the 1 year survival time doctors gave her in MN. Stanford had a new IV medication to help their daughter maintain until she could get the transplant she needed. CCC and Donna Meisner got them started on raising the Fund money they needed for the transplant. The Groebners are a truly remarkable family with an equally remarkable story. It's inspiring to see how a family going through so many challenges can be filled with so much hope and love and still have enough in their hearts to share with others...
"I am Katie Grace. I am 11 and I have Pulmonary Hypertension, a rare and terminal illness. But I have Faith that God will see me through. Thank you for being here to visit me" ;)
