This community and those who shared Gabe’s fundraiser have done so much! Gabe’s fundraiser is 97% to it’s goal in a short amount of time. Thank you to everyone who donated and who shared his story. Gabe is doing okay. He shaved his head, he keeps smiling and Mary reports that’s while he’s not feeling the best, he’s doing okay considering everything put on his plate at such a young age. Chemo has been tough on him for sure but he continues to crush cancer. Thank you all!
Gabe Goslin Cancer Crusher
Start: Feb 13, 2019 - End: Apr 1, 2019
Gabe Goslin is a 15-year old Freshman at Mount Vernon High-School. He is involved in baseball, football and holds a job outside of school. On February 4th he was diagnosed with Stage III Hodgkins Lymphoma-Nodular Sclerosis Type. This diagnosis was obviously unexpected and devastating to Gabe’s family and friends. Can you imagine at age 15 to be told you have cancer? As a parent hearing those words? Gabe has started chemotherapy and treatment. Now that he is finally discharged from the hospital, he will need to make frequent trips back to the University of Iowa for treatment and more hospitalizations. Gabe and his family need our support. Mary, Gabe’s mom, had to quit her job to care for Gabe. Because of this, she has lost wages. Mary’s car is currently not working and she needs it for transportation to treatments for Gabe. In addition, Gabe will have at least one year’s worth of medical care and other medical supplies as he completes treatment. This is where we all as a community come in…let’s do some shopping at One Mission or offer a donation to help this family. Let’s take some of the added financial stress of having a sick child off their plate.
Fund Leader: Kaye Siders
Fund Type: Medical Causes
Wow! This community has been so incredibly generous to Gabe and his family to help meet their needs during this difficult time. Thank you all so much- those of you who donated what a blessing you are to this family. Thank you all who shared this fundraising page so the word could get out about Gabe’s battle.
Today, Friday February 15th, Gabe and Mary will travel back to the University of Iowa for another round of chemo for Gabe. Gabe struggled with the last round of chemo so let’s pray he has a better reaction this time. I think knowing so many people care for him will help AND Gabe’s a freaking cancer crusher so he’s GOT THIS!!
