Conquering Cancer with #TeamPluta

Hi friends & #ConqueringCancer family! 

As you know, Harrison has been fighting a long battle; first, with cancer that was in his liver, and now, cancer that has made it's way into his lungs. He has fought hard and has been full of faith every step of the way. He has gleaned strength from God, his family and his community. Always doing his best to have a great attitude. He has been so courageous and brave. Taking each twist and turn of this journey, with prayer and faith. 

Missy said it best when she said “He will be home around 4 tomorrow for good and I have the greatest honor of serving him until he sees Jesus. Thank you for being there for us through the good times and bad, for cheering us on, for making us laugh, for all the prayers. This thing we call life is so precious. And we are just going to be spreading joy and celebrating Harrison and his amazing life.” 

And those words are the truest ever written. Right from his mommas heart! Like Missy said, as of this afternoon, Harrison will be at home, with hospice care making him comfortable here on out. Because of that, Missy will be taking an unpaid leave to care for, and spend time with Harrison. 

As a community, our job is to rally around the Pluta's - to love and serve them however we know how to.  Sometimes, in situations like this, we have no idea what to do, how to help, how to love, and how to serve. There isn't an outline for how to do things like this. But the Word says that we are blessed to be a blessing. That it is far better to give than to receive. that as Christians and people who want to love, our job is to carry each others burdens. (Galatians 6:2) As Harrison, and the Pluta’s community, we wanted to create an easy outlet for you to do that. Because of the accumulating medical bills, unforeseen expenses, and Missy taking an unpaid leave from work to be Harrison’s primary care giver, one of the many and most practical ways we can lift a burden from the Pluta’s is a financial gift. 

The Pluta’s thank you. Our community thank's you. And I know God is grinning as He watches His people come together to love the son, and family that He loves so much. 

Let’s love the heck out of them!
