This campaign is to raise funds for my dear friend Brenda Gallant to take a trip down to the coast so she can enjoy the sound of the ocean, and she can take an evening walk under the night sky.
Brenda, who just turned 50, was diagnosed around the first of November with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Her life expectancy was projected to be 2 - 3 months. This, of course, has been devastating news to Brenda and her family.
Brenda wanted to travel out west to see the Grand Canyon this month however, after conversing with her doctor this morning, they have decided that trip should not be made. She has decided on a quick beach trip to sit in the sand at night and "look up at the stars".
Unfortunately, along with the devastating news comes mounting medical bills that have already taken a financial toll. Her husband Gary has taken time off work (without pay) to be with Brenda every minute possible during this time.
Brenda worked as a flex RN at Skyline Hospital in Nashville. She and her husband attend Long Hollow Church.
