On May 22nd, 2014 Afton Wallace was diagnosed with Stage IV, Metastatic Ewing’s Sarcoma. This disease is an aggressive childhood bone cancer that had spread from her pelvic bone to numerous spots all over her body. Afton was rushed by life-flight to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital where she spent six weeks undergoing emergency radiation and extensive chemotherapy treatments. During the next 12 months, Afton spent 120 days in the hospital, underwent 45 radiation treatments, and received 70 doses of chemotherapy and has experienced three near-death emergencies. The cancer has caused permanent nerve damage to her left leg and she is no longer able to walk without assistance.  Details about her cancer journey can be found on her Facebook Page at: 
 Afton's FaceBook Page - MyMissionIsRemission 

Funds raised on Afton's behalf will be used to pay for medical expenses not covered through insurance.

Monday was a beautiful celebration of Afton's life. Many thanks to all those who were there. We are grateful that Afton has finally been laid to rest.

As many of you know, our goal is to create an endowed scholarship to BYU in Afton's name so that someone else may complete one of her unfulfilled dreams. Following discussions with the BYU endowment office, I have increased the amount of money we need to raise to create the fully endowed scholarship.

We are so grateful for all of you who have donated previously and we do not want to create a financial burden on any one family or individual. My feeling is that if everyone donates only a few dollars, we will be able to reach this goal easily.

Thank you!

This morning, Sunday, May 24, our sweet, precious and amazing daughter, Afton Colleen Wallace, graduated from mortal life and returned home to her loving Heavenly Father. Her dream of attending BYU will not be realized. However, we have decided to use the funds donated here to establish a scholarship that will help students from Mississippi attend college.

Many have asked what more they can do to help Afton, especially by those who are not physically close enough to bring meals etc. After much thought, we have decided that the most important gift we can give Afton is to help defray her costs while she attends BYU this fall. With that in mind, we have set up this gofundme site to see if we can raise the funds necessary to purchase a small van that can help with her transportation needs at school. Thank you for all your help.

To the Wallace family. I was never fortunate enough to meet Afton but I have been following her journey from the beginning. Countless hours I spent praying for her and for your family. I was heartbroken when I read the news this morning but my heart is smiling after reading what you will do with her funds. Tomorrow I will be setting up an event through a company that I am a consultant of, Jewelscent, to raise money for the scholarship in her name. 100% of my profits will be given to your fund. May God bless you and give you peace during this time. Much love to you all.
