Team Trent at St. Jude's
Very sad day today.......Trent lost his battle with cancer during the night last night, so we are asking for prayers for he and his family and any donations to help with the burial expenses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! Vicki Logue Guillory
We had a goal of $5,000 a while back to help the family with living expenses and we met and surpassed that goal. It was updated this morning to make the funeral expense goal an additional $3,000. Funerals, burial plots, headstones, etc. are quite expensive

My friend, Sharon, who lost her son to cancer at St. Jude this weekend is in need of financial help for the funeral expenses. He suddenly became ill in Feb. and was rushed to Memphis where they have been for 9 months fighting lymphoma and leukemia. She had to maintain her home and expenses in Opelousas without being able to work and did not have life insurance on the child. If you are interested in making a donation, we have set up a fund and will be giving the money directly to Sharon at the funeral later this week. Any small donation will help. Here is the link for donations.

Update on Trent: Well, he’s had some setbacks. The chemo regimen wasn’t working as well as anticipated, so they resumed the really strong chemo he was originally on and added a new one. He didn’t tolerate it very well and ended up in ICU due to difficulty breathing, low oxygen level, and low heart rate. They found a clot in his leg yesterday and started him on a med to hopefully dissolve it. He’s still in ICU, but his oxygen levels are somewhat better and he’s on a medication that is helping his heart rate. He’s still hurting some and has some shortness of breath, but is good spirits. And he’s eating a little more too – so that’s helping. They are hoping to get out of ICU and to a regular room soon. All thoughts and Prayers are appreciated! Thanks & God Bless!
The kindness, generosity, and joyous love of family, friends, and people who don't even know Trent, but want to help, has me in tears. They way people step up with there hearts open to support others when there down literally has me in tears. Thanks to all of you, with much love and God Bless!
This is an awesome idea. I've been wondering how I can help from Lake Charles. I'm not able to get to Opelousas to help with the fundraisers over there. Thanks Vicki! Give Sharon and Trent a hug and kiss from me.
