Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Jeff was diagnosed with brain stem glioma in May of 2011. He has been battling on and off for years and continues to fight this cancer. The tumor has shown some recent progression but Jeff and his family are fighting and not giving up.
Jeff and Kelli are overwhelmed with the love and support from friends and family. They are truly thankful and please know it is hard for them to
reply to everyone. Many of you have asked how you can help and below are a few ways.
Novena Prayer for Jeff- starting Sunday, November 29th at 8:00 pm MST. This will be nightly through December 6th. You can attend by calling 1- 712-770-5192. Code is 271386. This is not a zoom call but more of a conference call. The prayer will be about 10 minutes and will be led nightly by different people.
Meal Train - https://www.mealtrain.com/trains/g48103
There are guidelines and meal suggestions listed on the website.
Gift cards for meals are helpful especially during COVID. A few favorite places are Grand Ave Grill (970) 328- 4043 and Second Nature Gourmet (970) 471-9541. Both of these places know the Brausch family well and have an account/credit to which funds can be added. Pick Up Pizza (970) 328-3388 and Tu Casa (970) 524-1660 are also a hit with the family.
Charitable giving is a great way to show support. Two charities Jeff and Kelli prefer are The Salvation Army- https://vail.salvationarmy.org/
and The Vail Veterans Program- https://www.vailveteransprogram.org/.
Most importantly, share encouraging words and favorite stories on this website to put a smile on Jeff's face. Share this website with friends so we can lift Jeff, Kelli, Keaton, Kiana and Kamryn up with love, positive thoughts and prayers.
