Team Katie

Our good friends Mervyn and Sam Shephard recently discovered their six your old daughter, Katie, is suffering from a recurrence of childhood leukemia.  Katie had been in remission for some time until she recently began suffering from headaches, lethargic behavior and daily throwing up.  As you can see, Katie is a beautiful child who brings a smile to everyone who meets her.  We want to help with some of the costs and burdens the family will be going through over the next few months.  We also want to assure the entire families well-being and give/buy them time to focus as much as possible on Katie and two older daughters. 

*** Please help us by giving whatever you can today.
