Loving wife, caring mother & daughter,  friend, dedicated Church and community leader, talented author, teacher, editor, young, vibrant and yet....brain tumor diagnose.

Fran has been diagnosed with a glioma brain tumor in her left frontal lobe, approximately a centimeter away from the language centre.  Surgery is planned once her seizures are under control, but that is just the start. The financial burden is huge - medication, chemotherapy, radiation, physical therapy, support/counseling. $32,000 is the tip of the iceberg in meeting some of these financial obligations; and, it is only a projection for the first year of treatment.  

Let’s pull together and support Fran and her family! Our overall goals are: 12 k by March 15, 2016, 21lk by May 15, 2016 and 32 k by August 15, 2016. Any size donation is helpful and will support  them in paying for medical and living expenses.

Thanks to all for the prayers and donations! Three days and $3800.00 - ALMOST a third of way to achieving our 12 k March 15, 2016 goal.

Fran enters the hospital today to begin monitoring her seizures prior to surgery! Lets see if we can reach $6,000.00 for Fran and her family before the weekend!
