Support for the Sunderman Family

Miss Olivia Sunderman's Story -  On Thursday, November 16th, our good friends Nick and Sheena Sunderman took their youngest daughter, Olivia, to the doctor with some concerns.  Their world abruptly came to a halt when they brought Olivia in for an MRI in St. Cloud and she was diagnosed with hydrocephalus.   They immediately took Olivia to Children's Hospital in Minneapolis that evening and had some follow-up MRIs the next day.  The results showed something in her brain that shouldn't be there, causing her to have obstructive hydrocephalous.  When doctors looked at her brain and spine, they found an inch-size tumor in the middle of her brain, two smaller tumors in the back of her brain, and other tumors along her spine.   Olivia will be having surgery on her brain today (Sunday, November 19) to help the fluid drain to ease the pressure on her brain, and to collect a sample of the large tumor to have biopsied to find out the steps going forward. In addition to prayers, we are starting this GoFundMe for the Sunderman family as a small way to make a big contribution to an amazing family.  Nick and Sheena are always putting others ahead of themselves; not only their three daughters (Lauren, Kendall, and Olivia), but their families, colleagues, friends, and community as well.   Please consider making a donation...any amount you are capable of...for this wonderful family and beautiful baby Olivia.  We know that their focus will be 100% on their family and want nothing more than to help ease the burden of finances going forward for the medical bills, gas, and meals on-the-go that will follow.   Sending prayers your way, Sundermans.  We love you and are thinking about you all...
