Childs Family Cancer Battle, Pt 2

32786862_1536529219610035_r.jpegLet me tell you about the Childs family. Troy, Christina, Jack & Ryan are some of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. This family has been through so much in the past few years, starting with Christina's breast cancer diagnosis in 2015, subsequent chemotherapy and THIRTEEN surgeries (with another one on the way). Christina is finally in the clear from her cancer and starting to feel like her old feisty self after a hard recovery.

Just when they thought things were getting back to normal, Troy was diagnosed with Oropharyngeal cancer. Troy will possibly require surgery and 7 weeks of daily radiation and 7 weeks of chemotherapy with 4 weeks of recovery for the anticipated radiation burns. 

To pile on, they've recently discovered their home needs some necessary updates due to it's age (a beautiful 1941 home in Seward Park). 

Don't get me wrong, they are a crafty couple, but could use some financial support in order to ensure their boys lives aren't impacted - more than they already have been. 

Please consider donating to help them pay some of their medical bills, their home repair costs or consider donating groceries or a grocery store gift card to just keep them moving through daily life.
