$66,500 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 321 people in 9 months
Created July 31, 2018

As many of you know Alex began his fight with brain cancer 6 years ago. He was in remission for 5 years, but the last year and a half he has been battling this terrible disease again. 

Since March, Alex has rapidly declined and all treatment options have been exhausted. The doctors have given him days to a few weeks left on this earth.

In this devastatingly sad time-- we are struck by Alex's patience, joy, and perseverance in the midst of incredible pain. Alex chose his tattoo of a ship and an anchor as a constant reminder of the below verse.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful." (Hebrews 10:23)

Alex's hope is anchored in Christ and His faithfulness. The peace in this storm is that Alex will be with Jesus soon. Kelsey and those who love Alex are clinging to this truth and hope.

"And regarding the question, friends, that has come up about what happens to those already dead and buried, we don’t want you in the dark any longer. First off, you must not carry on over them like people who have nothing to look forward to, as if the grave were the last word. Since Jesus died and broke loose from the grave, God will most certainly bring back to life those who died in Jesus." (1 Thess. 4:13 MSG)

Alex and Kelsey welcomed their handsome son, Ezra on April 23rd of this year. Ezra has been a bright light in their life these past months.

Many of you have wanted to show your love through practical support in this incredibly difficult time.  The funds raised will go towards medical bills and day to day needs in the coming years.

In addition, we set the $50,000 target in the hope that we will also be able to create an education fund for Ezra.

With broken hearts, we want to let you know that Alex peacefully went home to be with Jesus early this morning.

Please be praying for Kelsey & Ezra & Alex's family.

If you would like to send a message to Kelsey, we ask that you do that via email, so as not to overwhelm her with text messages.
