On August 17th, 2019, our lives completely changed. Don had a seizure in the middle of the night and was rushed to the hospital. After a series of tests, we were told he had a brain tumor in the left frontal lobe.The next day he had a biopsy, and within a week we were told it was malignant. In the last week of August, he had the tumor resection.

Don has brain cancer, specifically anaplastic astrocytom- grade 3. He has a long recovery ahead with physical therapy, to regain strength and healing, but this precious man is so determined. The plan is that around the beginning of October, he will begin chemo/radiation treatments.
I want to share how incredibly brave, courageous and faithful my man is!! He told me the day before surgery he is NOT praying for the storm to pass, but for God’s purpose to come, for God to be glorified, and hearts to be changed. I love him even more.❤️❤️❤️
Please, pray with everything you’ve got for us to have continued strength, perseverance, guidance, rest, and whatever God would want for anyone involved. We need a miracle.

{Thank you for praying for our girls too: Emily, Jenna, Maddie, and Grace. This has been very scary for them too}

We thank ALL of you who have helped us in so many ways, and are continuing to do so.
We need you. We love you. ❤️

With Gratitude,
Don, Amy, Emily, Jenna, Madelyn, Grace

Welcome to our fundraiser page on behalf of the Cain family*.
Dear Reader,

First, thank you for taking the time to stop by, and pause from your life to be a part of another's life.
What a beautiful community the Cain family has; whether as realtives, church family, friends from school, or work. 
Thank you for reading their story. Looking at their pictures. We are so grateful for you all, joining together in Caring for the Cains.

So MANY of you have said things like: 
How can I pray? What do they need? Do they need help with the girls, with school? Is anyone with Amy at the hospital? Do they need meals? What about a house cleaning, would that help? Back and forth to the hospital and Dr.s so much, would gift cards be good? If so, what kinds? What is happening with the medical bills, inscurance, Don's job? Wasn't Amy about to start working too? Are the girls ok? Do they need anything? 
Whew...where to begin?
Basically...yes to it all. Life has, in a way, halted as the Cain's knew it. And yet, life also keeps marching on. They are adjusting to a new, hard normal. At least for now, and the near future, life is looking very different for them.

WHAT CAN  I DO? How can I help?

*housecleaning (approx $150)
*lawncare 
*giftcards for personal use
*giftcards to give away to Dr.'s, nurses, physical therapy, or friends helping drive the girls places, as "thank you's"
*finacial gifts to help with
co-pays for everything from the surgery, tests, perscriptions, therapies--LOTS OF MEDICAL EXPENSES!
*meals, there is a Meal Train set up through our local chuch. Point of Contact: Courtney Plevniak-- https://mealtrain.com/2qzwdm
*How to PRAY? UPDATES to Don's progress will be posted to Caring Bridge: https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/doncain
*co-workers are looking to donate days off to Don, so he may recover, as he will run out of leave -How amazing is that!?
*Pray over the insc. company--as they need favor to cover ALL that is needed. And more, let's pray for MORE! But honestly, the insc. can be a huge source of frustration. So please pray about that with us?

These are just a few ideas. Please know that the Cain's are in for a marathon, and their journey to Don healing has just begun. 



It is our hope and prayer to come alongside this precious family and carry some of this burden, with them.
Thank you for considering how you can be a part. Truly, it is not a small thing. Caring for others is the most beautiful thing any of us can ever do. It is the most beautiful gift!

If you are reading this and have walked a similar journey, what helped you? What did you need, that we have not even thought of? What would you want, if you were in a similar situation?

We love you dear Cain family. "Love Shows Up!" We are showing up for you and know that Jesus is showing up for you even MORE than we could ask or imagine!

We have a saying that, once you are in our home, share a meal with us...well, you become FAMILY! That's just how it is. 

Love, Jenn Stovall and family
