Nikhill Saluja once said "Being a Mother means that your heart is no longer yours; it wanders wherever your children go."

Peg Schilling,  a single mom to young Garrett Schilling, is fighting stage four colon cancer. After undergoing six major surgeries and chemo treatments, resources have been drained. As time marches on Peg's strength is rapidly declining, the cancer is winning.

For the last two years, Peg and Garrett's life has been in turmoil as they fight this battle together. At the same time, Garrett, a teenager of 14 struggles to cope with the many challenges in his increasingly uncertain world.  

We are asking for donations to support a stable home for Garrett and provide for his daily care during this incredibly difficult time. Your donation is crucial now to help Garrett move forward each day with the knowledge that his basic needs are provided for by a community of compassionate individuals that offer support, prayers and  hope.     

Your generous donation will directly impact Garrett's ability to find a reason to move forward without Peg by his side.

"I know my heart will live on in my son. For God has whispered to me that I have only one home, and that is with Him. It is time to go home."
Thank you and God Bless

After a courageous two year battle, Peg lost her life to cancer on August 19th, 2017. She was an amazing woman that will be missed by many.

Peg's surviving son Garrett, at 14, is doing everything he can to believe in hope for the future without his Mom, a woman who has been his protector, and a stellar example of grace, strength, and hope throughout his life.

Your contributions are a significant source of hope and comfort for Garrett in this difficult time. They mean more than you can imagine.

Thank you and God Bless !
