Their story is simple; married 43 years (48 together), parents to 3 sons, 2 biological and one adopted in heart (see attached video) they have poured their lives into their local community. A heart for prison ministry Frank began in 1985 going into adult facilities and about a year later Gayle got involved with Straight Ahead and began entering youth facilities and continues to this day. Their passion to bring healing and hope to the broken has changed the direction of many lives.
Today they face an end stage cancer diagnosis. At this time the doctors are working to keep Frank comfortable and managing his pain, but apart from a miracle they predict he only has a matter of months. Their faith in Christ has been an anchor through life’s trials. Frank is grateful for the years, God has given him, 13 additional years following a liver transplant, he does not fear death. What burdens him most is his concern for Gayle, his best friend and life partner, and the pending financial burden that she will be left with.
This is why we are reaching out to you. Apart from the already mounting medical bills and expenses the simple truth is that Frank and Gayle are not at a place financially where they can bear this burden alone. For the two who have given of themselves for all these years, we believe it's time for us to give back. The harsh reality is that when Frank passes Gayle will not only have to learn how to navigate her day to day without him, but will also, not be able to stay in her home of 42 years.
Our hope and prayer for this fundraiser is that they will be able to pay the medical bills and keep Gayle in her home. Gayle & Frank have poured their entire lives into the lives of others. If you need more details about Gayle's story please watch the video below:
