I am so grateful to my sweet sister for creating an incredible fundraiser in Raquel’s name. We do have extra costs associated with Raquel’s brain tumor, but we have been blessed with wonderful employment and feel that we can manage the insurance deductible and other expenses without too much burden. So we wanted to have much of these funds go to families who are on the brink of bankruptcy because of medical bills. So $5000 will go to the Millie’s Princess Foundation, which helps families on the verge of bankruptcy, who can’t get other financial aid. My heart is brimming over at the generosity that has already been shown!
KSL.com did a story on Raquel, and her fundraiser. To read the article, click HERE. The donations have reached over $7000! We were able to purchase a new bedroom set for Raquel, and pay for some of her natural therapy. To make a donation to Raquel’s fundraiser, click HERE.
Since Raquel got out of the hospital, the Cedar City Children’s Musical Theater has also done and continues a fundraiser, (Raquel played Annette in their production of Beauty and the Beast),
along with Raquel’s school, Cedar High School (Washing for Raquel).
We are amazed and grateful for all the generous hearts out there, and that we have the opportunity to do some good in the world!
We’ve also created a fundraiser in the name of Max Goddard, son of Natalie and Andy Goddard, who was in the hospital right next to us, and experienced burns on 40% of his body on July 3rd. This fundraiser will benefit severely burned children around the world, who can’t afford life-saving surgeries. Go Max! Get better soon! Please SHARE!

Thanks to everyone who has shown their love and compassion through these fundraisers and other service!
When Raquel came out of brain tumor surgery, it was tough on my heart. To see her completely unconscious, with so many tubes coming out of her body. She had a stomach tube and breathing tube in her mouth, which would be pulled out as soon as she woke up enough. They said her throat […]
Raquel did well enough during the drive up to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. I just remember how sick she looked and how concerned we were about “brain tumor surgery,” but we tried to put our faith in God and feel his love and comfort as we hoped for the best. We arrived […]
My daughter has a brain tumor. Discovering that information has shattered the normalcy of our lives, for how long we do not know. My daughter, Raquel, is 15 years old and she finished the ninth grade the third week of May. Just then her dad went on a trip to South America for two weeks […]

This is a guest post from my friend, Amy Estes. Support weight loss with food! I’ve been going through an elimination diet recently in which I excluded sugar for at least a month (I lost 10 pounds!). I have been gradually reintroducing certain foods and looking forward to something sweet. While a lot of foods are […]

Let’s chat for a minute about horehound in the garden and medicine chest. Why grow your […]
