Holly's Heart of a Warrior Campaign

Hollera, where oh where do we begin?!?!

Holly is one of the most beautiful people on this Earth, both inside and out. We grew up together, making tons of memories that close cousins + family create through a special bond and tons of laughs + love. Holly was always someone we looked up to, and that rings even MORE true today.  After a GORGEOUS wedding in Costa Rica last year to the love of her life, Chris, Holly was diagnosed with a type of cancer called lyposarcoma. It first started in her thigh and now is in her lungs as well. Her chemo was not working as well as they had hoped, and she will hopefully soon be testing out a new drug that will hopefully kill the specific gene that is cancerous in her cells, as to shrink the tumors enough (or completely) so she can move on with having her left leg amputated.  

Now, this is a girl who used to run marathons, travel often, hike, and take adentures whenever called. And guess what? Holly is NOT letting this get her down! She is thankful that they won't have to amputate her hip, and is already looking forward to getting a prosthetic so she can get back to her adventures!!!

Through all of this, Holly has been so upbeat + hopeful which to us is the heart of a warrior. Holly is a nurse, so that warrior is for sure engrained in her beautiful heart and soul!

The bills are piling up, as Holly is not able to work, going through TONS of treatments and awaiting her leg amputation. We set this up to help Holly and Chris so that they are able to focus more on Holly's health and not so much the medical bills surrounding her. 
Holly's dad, our Uncle Tex, sums it up beautifully: Thank you, sweetheart for reminding us all how courage and grace can make such a difference in our lives. THANK YOU for making a difference for Holly + Chris, every little bit helps!

Pura Vida,
Sara + Court
