The Croslin Family- mother with stage 4 Cancer

Have you ever met a family that has just done E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. right?? Met in college. Graduated. Got married. Have two beautiful girls....Meet the Croslin family!

In November of 2018 Courtney was diagnosed with stage four melanoma. Courtney is a mother of two beautiful girls and wife of an amazing husband, Jimmy. Please consider donating.  

Heres their story...

Courtney and jimmy started dating in 2010. Their story began at Eastern Michigan University where they both majored in criminal justice. 37896380_1553106661227259_r.jpeg

In June of 2012 they had a phenomenal wedding. Courtney literally stole the show coming down the aisle. She was beautiful, but that’s not why she took the show. Jimmy stood waiting for his future wife for at least 25 minutes while K-Ci and JoJo “All My Life” played 16 times. Ok. Maybe not 16 times but it felt like it. As the song kept repeating, I could see what started with a laugh, turn in to nervousness and then finally relief with her appearing. She still to this day claims she didn’t hear her cue. Gorgeous and unforgettable would be two adjectives to describe their wedding. 

Courtney and jimmy have always had a life of service. They are members of Northridge Church. Courtney decided to get her masters in Social work and become a Social worker. Jimmy working in marketing from home to support their family.


Their blessings continued when they had their  baby girls, Haven in September of 2013 and in November of 2015 with Ember. 37896380_1553106444146136_r.jpeg

Here’s where their perfect story took a change. This is my perspective of what Courtney is going through... 

Imagine your sister gets engaged. Engaged to your husbands best friend. Imagine working out and losing weight. With your sisters wedding coming up, only makes sense. You’re the Maid of honor. 

Imagine a pain in your hip. Going to doctors. Going the physical therapy. Imagine stopping your workout routines, feeling fatigue. 

Imagine the day before your best friend (sister) gets married. That day, you find out you have cancer. Not just any cancer. Stage 4. Melanoma. 29 years old. Married. With 2 little girls. Life is too short. 

Courtney is a fighter. She’s been unable to work since her aggressive treatment. You never think things like this can happen to the ones you love. From hip pain to stage 4 cancer. Asking you to share and donate.
