David’s Story

Site created on September 10, 2019

    In early June, David learned that his brain cancer has spread to other parts of his brain and into his spine.  His doctor told him that he has 4-6 weeks left, and is entering hospice care.
   So many of you are asking “How can I help?”   We are so grateful for and humbled by our community--near and far--who continue to show up for our family time and time again, and will absolutely let you know when we have better ideas about how you can help!
We have created a GoFundMe page, anticipating our needs and the generosity of our friends and family.
If you would prefer to help our family in another way,  please consider gift cards to Family Fare,  Amazon, Target, Shipt, or local Grand Rapids take-out restaurants.
