As some of you may already know, a family within our Manchester community received some unimaginable news this week when their 13-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. Katy & Eric Forstell have an amazing family and are two of the most supportive and welcoming people I have come to know in our little town. The Forstell Family has a long road ahead of them as they face this challenge head on.

For those who know Hannah, you know she is a vibrant and loving girl who literally lights up the room. Hannah is truly one of my favorite humans and always finds a way to make me feel like a million bucks every time I see her…and I am sure I am not the only one.

We are working on putting together a few ways in which people can help this family as they navigate medical bills, Dr’s appointments, chemo treatments and so much more. In the coming days, weeks and months our hope is to put together a few different ways you can help. 

To start, we have created t shirts and hoodies that you can purchase online and this GoFundMe page. It’s a little something that you can do to let the Forstell Family know that they will never fight alone. #forstellstrong starts today, as we rally around one of our own.

No donation is too small.  Every single dollar counts.
