Support for the Howland Family

Brad Howland was recently diagnosed with an aggressive type of brain cancer, called a butterfly glioma. He is currently undergoing daily treatments at the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City. His wife, Cathy, has had to take Family Medical Leave from her position in the Cedar Falls schools and is now out of sick days, which means she will be on unpaid leave. I have started this fundraiser to provide needed assistance with everyday expenses during this time, as well as with medical co-pays and deductibles. Brad, Cathy, and their daughter Hannah have given so much to our community - please help give something back. Your good wishes and prayers will also be welcomed with gratitude. Thank you for helping!!!
