Change for Craig & Connie

Craig is trying to keep his will to live while others are trying to take it away. My friends Connie (Pierce) and her husband Craig Plain have been fighting for his life over the past 6 and half years. He was diagnosed with Ogliodendroglioma (brain cancer) in 2008 after have been misdiagnosed for 6 months. When we finally got the diagnosis he was sent for surgery right away to remove a large tumor from the right side of his brain. After that Craig went through 6 weeks of radiation and then 6 solid months of chemotherapy. He made sure to not miss work all but one day during the whole time. He has been rediagnosed 3 different times since then. With the most recent diagnosis being in Novemebr of 2012. Craig and Connie yet again had to prepare to say good bye to each other again when he was wheeled into surgery. By the grace of God after a 6 hour surgery that was supossed to take 3 was finished they learned they were still going to live life as a family with their young daughter and Connie's 3 teenage sons. Craig has suffered a significant brain compromise but has been working through it with out missing any work since his surgery in December. Craig has now lost his job as of yesterday and with that he has lost his income, health insurance and the ability to pay for his prescriptions. So as their friends and family let's band together and give him the will to live by helping them out financially just by donating what you can. It doesn't matter if it is a large amount or even just the change in your pocket, they truly need it.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SUNDOWNER ENTERTAINMENT will be donating a 4 hour show to CRAIG'S WILL TO LIVE to be raffled off on May 25th at his FUNDRAISER. We are raising donations to help him get his medications he needs to survive his brain cancer. Craig is our brother in law who at the age of 33 was diagnosed with brain cancer. Craig is a wonderful husband, father to his daughter Emma and to his three stop sons, Quinnten, Jarred and Gavvin. The company that Craig has worked for all this time has let him go suddenly and mind you it was just after Connie was let go from her job after taking off to take care of Craig after his brain surgery. They are left with mounting medical bills, everyday life and need their friends, family and community support at this time of need. SUNDOWNER ENTERTAINMENT will be posting more of the fundraiser on May 25th which does include a BIKE BLESSING our of GERMANTOWN WI during the month ... If you can donate anything at all please let me know and I'll add it to the list but more importantly if you can spare a prayer for my Sisters Family we know it will help.
Thanks ...
