Dont know if I'm allowed to share this here but its a family I know personally. They can use all the prayers they can get


BROOKLYN’S BATTLE
April 26, 2013
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Over the past year many of you have followed the story of our courageous angel, Brooklyn Shaw, the daughter of Hailey and Cody Roberts. Brooklyn, who is three, has fought a battle few of us would have the stamina to win. In April of 2012, Brooklyn’s family was faced with devastating news: she had Stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer. This red-headed wonder fought back! Since diagnosis, Brooklyn has endured months of heavy chemotherapy and radiation treatments at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. She also underwent stem cell harvest and transplant at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville. In early 2013, Brooklyn’s last treatments ended. On April 22nd , mere months after the completion of those harsh treatments and therapies, Brooklyn’s family was given the horrible news that her cancer had relapsed.
Faced with this hard news, Brooklyn’s family wants to give her every little girl’s dream: to go to Disney World. We are asking that you help us make that happen! We need funds to send Brooklyn, her twin sister, Maddie, her mom and dad, baby sister Lexi, and grandparents Marla and Norman Shaw on this trip of a life time, so they can enjoy Brooklyn and each other.
This family has fought a hard battle this past year. Please help us give them an escape from cancer, a chance to make our sweet Brookie smile, and a chance to make memories that will last a lifetime. Any money donated will go straight to making the Disney World trip possible for Brooklyn and her family. In the event the trip is not possible, the funds will be used in connection with the treatments and expenses associated with Brooklyn’s battle!
Please continue to pray for our Brooklyn and her family. Cancer is big, but we know that OUR GOD IS BIGGER!
Love to All,
Friends & Family

Please make checks payable to Epperson Church by MAY 5, 2013
You can mail checks to : Casey Edwards, 672 Reliance Rd. Tellico Plains, Tn 37385

Eric do you have a Paypal account and a means to transfer that into a check?? I just simply dont do checks - cash or electronic only and i trust you to take what I send and get it to them with 0 hesitation.

Let me know - I want to know I helped get her to Disneyworld!!

On top of this refer her to make a wish they have the ability to make this happen and they do it up for them. It is also nice to have some extra cash for the trip but Make a wish works fast in these cases I know from experience with my daughter.

I hope it was ok, but I emailed someone at Make A Wish Foundation after reading this story, and here is the reply that I received. I pray it all works out.

Dear Jimmy,
Thank you for reaching out to us about Brooklyn. I spoke with a friend of the family this morning and emailed her our referral form. I am so sorry to hear about Brooklyn’s medical status.

Neuroblastoma will qualify Brooklyn for a wish as long as she has not had a wish granted through another wish granting organization.

Best Wishes,

Lara Caughman
