Don't Let Cancer STEAL 2nd Base!!
Meet the Little's! Chris and Lora are an amazing couple that have built a beautiful family. It all started in 1995 where they met and fell in love in high school. They decided to make it official on December 30th of 2000. Along the way they added 3 beautiful children that they couldn't be anymore proud of. Life was good and just when they thought everything was going great the unexpected happened! Along with the typical trials and tribulations in the world, little did they know this would unfold one of many things!
On Nov. 13th Chris was rushed to the hospital for a ruptured appendix. What was supposed to be a simple procedure turned into a 13 day NIGHTMARE! Just when things were calming down, and they were settling back into every day life, Lora was diagnosed with not 1 but STAGE 2 breast cancer on January 9th! While fighting for her life, thier daughter Ava, had to have a MRI scan done on her brain. Ava is 13 years old and seeing double almost cross eyed since January. She has been such a trooper and rarely complaining but she has struggled to play in band, read books, watch movies, and just live life because she sees two of everything. Along with all the dr appt's and treatments going on, the results reveal she may eventually have to have surgery. Although there are some positives going on. Collin age 7 and Henry age 3 are keeping them on there toes, never a dull moment with these guys around!
After several treatments taken in Arkansas, Lora is now on her 4th round of stronger doses of chemo that has to be administered in Chicago, IL. She is getting weaker and it is getting harder and harder for her to go alone. With that being said insurance only pays for her flights, but does not cover a care giver to go with her, her hotel stay or transportation while she is enduring treatments. Not counting the co pays and lab fees. Lora has 5 remaining treatments after this weekend, and they get stronger and stronger leaving her entirely too weak to be alone. The hospital in Chicago is only giving them a 2-3 day notice on treatment dates and with last minute flights they are ranging from $900-$1200 per ticket. Thus leaving Lora the small town girl to fight her battle in the windy city alone...
So in short all prayers and donations are very much appreciated and will be used to help Lora and family throw out cancer!!! If you are unable to help reach the goal but would like to donate any air miles that are transferable it would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you for taking the time to read the Little's story, it means so much to every one involved! May God Bless each and everyone of you!!!!!
