My name is Amy Lloyd and I am the mother of the groom. I would like to introduce to you a beautiful young newly wed couple, Brandon Lloyd and Annemarie Doyle Lloyd. Annemarie Doyle is a Senior at Harding University in Searcy, AR and Brandon is a recent graduate of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, AR . After more than a 1 1/2 years of dating, Brandon proposed to Annemarie in Cinderella's Castle on May 18th, 2015. In April of 2016 as they were planning their December 3rd, 2016 wedding, they had no way of knowing the hurdles that they would soon face. What should have been a joyful exciting time of their lives has become a daily emotional and physical struggle. April 8th, 2016 Annemarie began feeling dizzy and over the course of the next two weeks had many visits to healthcare professionals. On April 21, 2016 an MRI showed a tumor in the cerebellum of her brain. On April 27th, 2016 she underwent brain surgery in Little Rock, AR. Shortly after, Annemarie was given her diagnosis. She has Grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) Brain Cancer. Annemarie has many years of treatment and tests ahead of her and this young couple are just starting their life together. Any and all monies raised will be used to fund medical bills, prescriptions, medical supplies, household maintenance or anything necessary to make this struggle more managable financially.
Your contributions, prayers and support are greatly appreciated and we want to say thank you in advance.
Annemarie has started a blog to chart her journey on her fight against this disease.
Photos are graphic but its her reality.
