The Hengst Family

37260326_1550867936710048_r.jpegJethro and Brittany Hengst are a young couple that live in Vero Beach, Florida. Jethro is the school resource officer at Vero Beach Elementary School and Brittany is a graphic designer and stay-at-home mother. They have two precious children, both of which have significant medical needs. 

37260326_1550867960567943_r.jpegTheir nine month old daughter, Eleanor, has a congenital heart defect. She is currently in recovery from a stroke she had after her latest heart surgery.  
37260326_155086801892980_r.jpegThis past month they’ve experienced an array of health issues with their two year old son, Ezra. And from that discovered he has a rare childhood cancer, Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. The outline of his treatment plan over the course of this next year is quite aggressive. His treatment will include chemotherapy, radiation and stemcell transplants.
Jethro will need to take a lot of time off work. We’re raising money to alleviate some of the financal stress that they will encounter during Ezra and Eleanor’s health journeys.
