Support the Herndon Children

$17,290 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 200 people in 4 months
Created January 22, 2018
After a 5 year long battle against metastatic breast cancer, Sarah's health has taken a turn for the worse and is not expected to survive much longer.  Sarah is a single mother of two young girls - ages 6 and 8 - and has devoted herself to providing them with the best life possible throughout this long illness. Like any parent, Sarah wants the best for these amazing girls, and as her friends we would like to raise as much money as possible to help with their care. Our goal is to assure Sarah that our community will not ignore her daughters, and that they will be well cared for after she passes. 

Sarah, please know how much you have inspired us with your strength and tenacity throughout the past several years.  You have fought this disease with such poise and grace, and we are honored to call you our friend.

**This campaign was started by Micah Kraemer, a good friend of Sarah's for the past 3 years. The funds raised from this campaign will be deposited into a trust account that has been created for Holly and Hannah - The Herndon Children Trust. 

Thank you,

Please note that the funds for this campaign are being withdrawn to The Ephrom Children's Trust. The reason for this change is because there were donors who requested an independent trustee to ensure the funds will be properly dispersed in the children's best interest. This doesn't violate the spirit of the original campaign; rather, we want ensure there is complete transparency regarding how these funds are used. The Ephrom name was selected because it is the children's legal last name, and we felt it prudent to keep Sarah's name off the new trust so that it was clear that these funds were not part of Sarah's estate. The new trustee is Rochelle Ramacher, and she can respond to any questions. Thank you again for your support.

We are sad to announce that Sarah passed away surrounded by her closest friends on Wednesday. Her girls have a long road ahead and we ask that you pass the word about our campaign. Her daughters are in need of not only clothes, but money for school supplies, activities, and basic living expenses. Rest In Peace, Sarah. ❤️

We are incredibly touched by all of the donations. Sarah has returned to her house today and is under the care of hospice. The family has asked for privacy during this difficult time so please do not drop by unannounced. If you would like to help, the best way to do so would be by participating in the meal train (email jnewmarker2@gmail.com). Thank you all for loving Sarah!❤️

I was able to see Sarah at the hospital today and share with her how much support she and the girls have. Her mother is also beyond touched by your generosity. I’m currently contacting local businesses and the media to create a larger scale fundraiser for the girls. If you know of any businesses who would like to contribute or participate, please email me. We are doing well but we are hoping to raise thousands more to support these girls through their childhood. Thank you all for being so wonderful and supportive.
