This is a program that Roger Fazendin REALTORS® is helping with during the month of November. Baby Raylan (20 months old) has a cancerous tumor and will be receiving chemo for the next year. REALTOR® Dave Kuck shared the story with staff person Shelly Halverson, who is President of a local Thrivent Chapter Board. The Sonnenberg’s are friends of Dave and his wife Sarah and Dave had just helped the Sonnenberg’s purchase a home in Plato. They had just moved in and hadn’t really unpacked when all this started. Dave and Sarah also have a son near Raylan’s age, so all were touched by the story and wanted to find a way to help. They decided to put together a Thrivent Action Team for Raylan and his family to help with medical expenses and incidentals.
If you’d like to be a part of the Action Team, all you need to do is pick up a jar at Roger Fazendin REALTORS®. You can make your own jar, we’ll even send you the story and photo if you let us know your address or e-mail. Each jar is filled with lifesavers, take out a lifesaver piece of candy and put a dollar in it each day. We can partner with the Sonnenberg family on this journey by remembering them each day for the next month. The week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 24) we will collect all the jars and dollars and share with them the blessing of friends, family and people who care. If a dollar a day is too much, do what you can. If it’s not enough, do more. The point is to keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they travel this path and to let them know they are not alone. Thanks for your support and care and being a lifesaver for Raylan
