Hello class of 2002. As you have probably heard, one of our classmates is facing the unthinkable. Candace "Beaty" Gwaltney's beautiful daughter, Aurelia, has been battling cancer on and off for years now. They recently found out that their final option, a trial drug, was not working, and that now all that can be done is make sure sweet Aurelia is comfortable. The doctors have given her weeks to months to live. She is 5 and a half years old. There is little anyone can do to truly help at a time like this, but we have decided to try and take care of the "trivial" things, so that Candace can just worry about spending time with her daughter. We are looking to raise money to fund things like a weekly house cleaning service, grocery delivery, laundry service... anything to make her life easier and free up her time so her focus can be where it needs to be. Any thing you would be willing to donate, no matter how small, would be an amazing blessing. Together we can help! Thank you in advance, and please keep Candace, Aurelia, and the rest of their family in your thoughts and prayers... and help us spread the word so we can get this moving quickly!!
