Grace’s Army vs. Dumb Cancer



Grace Oliver has been battling brain cancer for two years.  Her college years were brutally interrupted by seizures, invasive treatments, and thoughts of what-if.  Her entire life as she knew it has been shaken.  We all desperately pray and we all say to ourselves, there must be something we can do!  

The truth is, there isn’t much that anyone can do to eliminate or even reduce the symptoms Grace has been dealing with.  She is carrying a massive burden.  She is doing so with what else, but grace.  And so is her family.  These selfless people- our dear friends, neighbors, cousins, co-workers… - actually put aside their own struggles and found the time and spirit to become the top fundraising team for the Breakthrough for Brain Tumors walk.

They would never ask for financial assistance for themselves.  Yet, every one of us can imagine the financial burdens associated with Grace’s medical treatment ranging from doctors’ bills and medicine to time off work, transportation and so on.  We can also imagine that, in their shoes, we would want to bring our family together as often as possible.  To make memories, to sustain energy levels, to find opportunities for peace or joy or escape in the midst of fear and heartache.

Please join with us by making a small or large contribution to help lessen the Olivers’ financial burden and encourage them to take advantage of every possibility for happiness and serenity.   

Olivers, we love you and we stand with you in the best way we know how.  As we pray always for the best possible outcome, we give you permission to throw money at the problem.  Be the tiniest bit selfish for once.  Treat yourselves to that which you have only dreamed of.  This is your time!
