Claiming Victory with Vivian Over Neuroblastoma
Vivian is a playful, loving, silly, 4 year-old who is full of life. She loves her younger brother (Benjamin) and baby sister (Gwyneth) and won't go to bed until after she has put her hand on each of them and prayed for them. Vivian loves going to church to play with friends, listening to worship music, playing with her princess dolls, creating arts and crafts, and baking with her mom.
On July 13th, Scott and Erin were told the news that no parent ever wants to hear: their beautiful little girl had cancer. After some more tests were run over the next few days, Vivian was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma: there was a tumor on her kidney and the cancer had spread to her bones. Vivian underwent surgery to place a central line, where she will receive all her medications, and one week after the original diagnosis, Vivian began her treatment.
Stage 4 neuroblastoma is a very rare pediatric cancer with only 650 cases diagnosed in the US annually. The treatment protocol is lengthy (18-24 months) and brings with it huge medical costs: procedures, hospital visits and prescriptions that insurance doesn't fully cover are a few. There are also many other costs that appear: gas and meal money for trips to, and stays in, the hospital are just a couple. Our prayer through this GoFundMe page is that your outpouring of love and support will eliminate the financial stress so Scott and Erin can focus all their attention on Vivian, Benjamin and Gwenyth.
Let's overwhelm this family with prayers and a generous outpouring of finances.
