Help Erin Finish the Fight!

On March 27, 2019, 14-year-old Erin Attaway had a brain tumor removed, and a couple of weeks later, their family received the news that it was indeed cancer.  There have been many miracles along the way -  the fact that the tumor was found so quickly, the awesome surgeon who was able to remove all of the tumor, and the spinal tap that showed no cancer cells in her spinal fluid.  Still, she has a fight ahead of her.  To combat this cancer (anaplastic ependymoma), she has to complete a regimen of radiation for 6 weeks, or 30 treatments. She started them on May 13, and their family has had to relocate to a Ronald McDonald house close to the medical facility where she is having treatment since it is a couple of hours away from their home.  We would love to help this family in any way we can!  Erin's parents are William and Charlotte, and William is our pastor.  If you feel led and are able, please contribute to this fund, and it will go directly to any medical bills, lodging, food, and gas expenses that they have.  Thank you for your willingness to help and most of all, for your prayers, as they are helping tremendously!!
