As parents; what would be your absolute worst nightmare?
You'd expect all answers to have a common theme pertaining to the health and welfare of your children. The parents of EJ Wahl (the nephew of our close friend and colleague Brian Gillespie) know how to answer because they are living their worst nightmare right now. They recently learned that their son EJ, the oldest of their 4 children, is battling Diffuse Intrinsic Pontene Glioma (DIPG). DIPG is a particularly virulent form of brain stem cancer. Treatment options are extremely limited and the prognosis is equally grim.
While EJ and his family remain upbeat and are determined to battle this together with all of their resolve; the evidence strongly suggests there are not a lot of medical options nor is there much time left to them.
We ask for your support in the form of prayers for the family and for rapid medical progress.
We also ask for your financial support to help the entire Wahl family navigate the emotional stress and the financial burdens of the next several months. Our wish for them is that they be able to devote themselves exclusively to spending a lifetime's worth of quality time together in the limited time left.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Friends of EJ Wahl and Family
