Christian and Grace’s 8th Birthday Bash,
February 17, 2019
With Christian’s cancer and tumors growing daily, the family doesn’t know what the future holds. With the news on Feb. 9 that four more tumors had joined the original, the family rushed to plan a birthday palooza for the twins.
Once an event was created on Facebook, the community answered the call. MadJax donated the space for free; SuperRent donated the tables, chairs, bounce house, games, all decorations and set-up time; and the cakes and food were donated upon requests by the twins. At 3 p.m. on the dot, some of the over 100 Facebook attendees began walking in. Kids ran, screamed, ate mac-and-cheese and enjoyed the best birthday party they had ever attended.
The twins went home with a car full of gifts, teeth covered in icing and a headache all too common to Christian. But what a celebration.
