Gentry Terrell 5, the daughter of Brydon and Amy Terrell and granddaughter of Tommy and Teresa Terrel and Stacy and Lisa Nolan has been diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer.
According to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Stage 4 Diffuse Intrinisic Pontine Glioma is a very aggressive growing tumor that starts in the brain stem, controls breathing, heart rate, the nerves and muscles that help us to see, hear, walk and talk.
Gentry and her family need our help in covering the cost of travel to treatments and time loss from work as they spend every second possible with Gentry. On Sunday, February 4th, there will be a “Loaves and Fishes Day” among area churches to take up a love offering.
