Nancy and Walt Knupp

$5,840 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 71 people in 30 months

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!

Nancy went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ today at 2:10. She was surrounded by people who loved and adored her, and she smiled slightly just before it happened. I know she is with her parents right now, telling them about our family and how we've grown and changed. Speaking for myself and probably the rest of my family, this is probably the hardest thing we've ever had to face. We stand strong together though, knowing we will all be together again one day. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the love and support you all have offered during this difficult time. Your continued prayers are needed and appreciated.

Update: Because of certain events the past few days, Nancy's condition has worsened. It is shocking and devastating to all because of the suddenness of this decline. Our family plans to travel to VA tomorrow to make important decisions regarding Nancy. Please pray for us, and kindly hold any unnecessary calls to Nancy's immediate family as tomorrow is going to be a very difficult day for all of us.

Update:

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.

Dad (Walt Knupp) and I will be heading to the hospital in the morning to sign paperwork and see Nancy off to surgery. As my sister said, we are so over whelmed by everyones kindness and generosity. There is no words to say how thankful Dad is and how much your love is felt. I will call Beth first thing after the surgery so she can post to keep you all informed. Pray, pray a lot.

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.
