I wanted to come and thank everyone that gave their giving jars to my friend and classmate, Kristy, over the holidays when we held a giving event for her to help her through the holidays. It meant so much to her and it meant a lot to me that my family was willing to step up and help too! We’ve done a few things for her so far, including raising money to get her a Kindle to get her through her treatments. We gave that to her for her birthday back in November. Then we held a holiday giving event to get gifts and some money to help them through the holidays. It was the best Christmas her and her girls ever experienced and she cried with joy at the generosity of everyone.
Unfortunately, her story hasn’t been very pleasant and I just wanted to update everyone and ask for prayers. After having a double mastectomy and beating breast cancer, her mother ended up having it and didn’t know it. Kristy found out the day of our giving event, and her mother passed away two weeks ago. On top of that, Kristy went back to the doctor last week and found out she has two tumors in her brain now, so the cancer is back. She is a single mom of two girls; the youngest is only 9. And one of the two girls has Asberger’s Syndrome (not sure which one). This girl has had a very difficult fight and I just wanted to ask for any prayers people are willing to give. She needs them all.
