Nancy and Walt Knupp
On the evening of January 28, 2014, Walt and Nancy Knupp lost their home, all of their possessions, and most of their pets to a house fire. Walt is okay, physically, but Nancy is currently in critical care for burns at UVA in Charlottesville. The road to recovery is going to be painful, both physically and emotionally, and we want her to focus on getting well instead of where they are going to live and how they are going to pay their medical bills. Nancy is the sister of Bill McClung, a pastor in Oak Hill, and daughter of Lois and William McClung, two prominent figures in Fayetteville who passed away in 1991. She is well-known and loved in her community. Many have asked to help monetarily, and I hope this web page can provide a way to do that. We appreciate anyone who wants to help in any way!

Via, Nancy's brother (Dad) just touched base with me approx a few hours ago. I'm sorry for delay in update, but I just got home from work a little bit ago.
Praise report! Nancy is currently stable and her vitals are okay. I certainly don't want to provide false hope because this is going to likely be a roller coaster ride of developments in her progress and recovery.
She was responsive to the stimulus and tests that the doctors and staff administered, in which shown brain activity. They will still monitor her neurological state and the staff seemed very positive that she would be fine from the lack of oxygen and the most recent occurrence that required CPR.
She is breathing on her own and the more permanent breathing tubes have been put in place in which will better aid in clearing those oxygen passages.
She is still in moderate sedation to provide comfort and they are fiercely attentive and working around the clock to monitor her vitals. Future surgeries have been temporarily put on hold until they continue to monitor and maintain stabilization.
Walt is okay despite the circumstances and is in the very good care of his daughter in VA.
Please continue to pray and give credit where credit is due because God certainly has provided and answered so many prayers already.
We thank you all for your outpouring love, concerns, generosity, and most importantly your prayers.
Sorry for misspelled words it's hard to see thru tears!

I can't get Nancy. and Walt off my mind I keep thinking about them and praying for them. It is also so sad about their pets and animals I know they are animal lovers and they have to be torn up over it. I pray for miraculous healing for Nancy and for Walt to be comforted during this trying time.
I was relieved to here one of the dogs made it. She is currently at the vet. I will keep an eye on her and I told them to do what is necessary to help her make it. I would be glad to cover these cost and I put a deposit down today.
Our family is so overwhelmed by the generosity of our friends, family, and our parents community. Perfect strangers have made donations and offered prayers and well wishes. There are no words to express our gratitude. Please continue to pray for Nancy's recovery. Again, thank you so much from all of us. God bless!
