Don't Take Life for Granted

Here is our 2nd beneficiary family that we have chosen to support for this year’s True Beauty Gala on October 22 and to launch our non-profit, True Beauty Foundation.

I came across Stephanie’s story a few months ago, and my heart completely went out to her and her beautiful family for the journey that they are currently experiencing. It is my honor to share her story with you and perhaps, she will touch your heart as she did mine. I have had an opportunity to chat with her the last few weeks, and let me just tell you…she is so full of life! I, for one, am incredibly excited that God has instilled it upon my heart to offer our help to her and family.

Here is her story: (As told by her GoFund Me page)

Please meet Stephanie. She is a beautiful, 33 year old mom with 4 children and a loving new husband. Upon giving birth to her youngest son in July of this year, 27 days later, she had a massive seizure and had to be rushed to the hospital. Within days, her and her families’ lives changed forever when she was told that she had a sizeable non-curable brain tumor. She immediately went home to tell her fiancee, at the time (now husband) the news. As the sole provider for their family, Richard did what he could, and went back to work right away.

Unfortunately, as Richard’s job does not offer health benefits nor paid sick leave, this beautiful couple is surrounded by financial difficulty. To make the situation even more difficult than it is, they live in rural Calgary, about an hour’s drive away, therefore they have to make a trip to the hospital for Stephanie’s treatments quite frequently, which also makes their life a bit more strenuous. Due to the amount of seizures she has, she is now unable to drive herself.

Richard has since chosen to leave work in order to care for his family 100%, therefore this, of course, puts a strain on their financial responsibilities. The assistance that they receive will greatly assist them with medical bills, overall living expenses for Stephanie, Richard and their four sons and will act as a substitute for Richard not being able to work.

Now, that you’ve read their story, I ask you to offer your help. If Stephanie’s story hits your heart in the most incredible way, I ask that you show your support. Both True Beauty Foundation and True Beauty Gala are all about empowering families to build a stronger bond and lending them a helping hand as they go through a cancer diagnosis. We encourage you to join us in this empowering movement where we can show Stephanie and her family love, friendship and support in this time of need.

Thank you for your Support!
