Courtney's Cause

As most of you are aware by now, Courtney Matches was diagnosed with a malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, which is a type of spindle cell sarcoma.
After noticing swelling in her leg at the end of March/ 2017, she was officially diagnosed in June /2017.
After 5 weeks of radiation in Toronto, numerous appointments, and several nights spent in hotel, the expenses have been overwhelming to say the least. And it is not over yet....
On Tuesday, September the 26th, 2017, Courtney will undergo a major surgery on her leg to remove the tumor, God willing, and reconstruction of her leg, including vein, skin, and tissue grafting. This will not only be an invasive and difficult surgery, but many months of recovery. Again, there will be months of lost wages, both to Courtney and her Mom Terry, as Terry nurses her daughter back to health.
As her friends, Tracey and I felt we needed to help in some way as we're sure her family and friends feel as well.
No donation is too small. Please continue to hold this family up in your prayers and consider helping in any way you can.
Thank you in advance for your love and support of this family.
