Help Sara Beckstrand fight Leukemia
In February 2017, Sara Beckstrand was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Within days of her diagnosis, she began an aggressive course of chemotherapy in Duluth, MN. Unfortunately, this treatment did not have the desired outcome and she is being transferred to the University of Minnesota hospital in Minneapolis per her doctor's reccommendation. Although this move is necessary, it takes her away from her family, including husband Thomas and children Pipa and Atley.
Sara can always be counted on to help those in need. While living in the La Crosse area, she regularly volunteered for worthy causes, including FreedomFest and WAFER. In her hour of need, she and her family need assistance to cover medical, travel, and household expenses and lost wages. This will not be an easy journey, and every donation helps.

Sara was a kind, generous soul. For those of you who knew her, I'm sure you remember she had a smile and laugh that could light up a room. She was an incredibly hard worker in everything she did. For those of you following her story who did not have the pleasure of meeting her, please rest assured that she was amazed by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers you all sent her way.
I was able to witness the adoration and love Sara's young children and husband had for her on numerous occasions. While this amazing family grieves please continue to keep them in your prayers. This page will remain open to accept donations for her husband and children.
Sara's husband Thomas has shared with me that per Sara's wishes she will be cremated and they are planning to have a celebration of life rather than a memorial, likely towards the end of July. I will post an update about the celebration once more details are known.
Again, thank you all for the support. In Sara's honor, please do something nice for someone, tell your loved ones how much they mean to you, or find something to laugh or smile about. Remember Sara's kind, loving, generous spirit, and continue to keep her family and friends in your prayers.
Sara and her family are grateful for all the support. They are asking for you to keep Sara in your prayers, as well as her children and husband,
and keep faith with Sara's fight.
Thank you and God bless.
Battle through, stay strong and keep fighting for better days. You are loved.
Glad to hear the good news. You may not remember me from school, but I was friends with Thomas. Best of luck
It was great seeing you today! Love you and keeping you in thoughts and prayers.
