Help The Hustrei's Fight Cancer

If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting the Hustrei family you would soon realize the sweet, amazing people that they are. Several weeks ago they received the devastating news that Branden has been diagnosed with stage 3 gastric cancer at the worst possible time since their first child is due in a few weeks. Our hearts are broken for them as they have been given such hard news during what should be a joyful season.  


Branden is a firefighter paramedic and is unable to continue working as the cancer has progressed and chemotherapy has started. Branden will continue chemotherapy for 2 months, then will have extensive surgery to remove the tumor and his stomach, and then continue with another 2 month round of chemotherapy. During the middle of all of this Carly will be due to have their first child and unfortunately, her contract does not provide paid maternity leave. During this hard time the last thing we want them to be worrying about is finances. The goal for this Go Fund Me is to allow Carly to have the freedom to stay home with their little girl and care for Branden as well as pay for some of their medical expenses. 

I cannot think of a couple more undeserving of this heartbreak or more deserving of our support. If you have the pleasure of knowing them in person I am confident that you agree. Carly is the ultimate host and will make herself uncomfortable to make sure that everyone else in the room is comfortable. Branden is the type of man who will drop everything to help a friend or acquaintance in need. They both chose professions to help others, but right now they need our help. If you are unable to give financial support your prayers are equally appreciated.
