The Ross Family of Mattawan, Michigan is facing tremendous challenges. Their story of ongoing battling is incredible. Three years ago, their then 4 year old daughter Maren was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a very aggressive and hard to treat cancer. For the past three years the family has been through surgery, transplants, chemotherapy, and risky trials in hopes of clearing Maren’s cancer. Currently, Maren is continuing treatment to keep the neuroblastoma clear at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. In addition to Howard (dad), being laid off work, Valerie (mom), has been through recent medical turmoil. In addition to ongoing Crohn's disease, when Valerie was pregnant with their fifth child, two aneurysms were discovered in her brain. Surgery was done to coil one, with the other being unable to be treated. This all took place within months of Maren’s diagnosis. They have handled it all with grace and strength. But now in addition to the ongoing medical hurdles, and due to mounting medical expenses and being laid off, the family is facing the loss of their home. While both parents have been relentlessly pursuing work, the bank has initiated the foreclosure of their home. This incredible community family needs support – we are trying to secure their house, so the family of seven won’t lose their home. We are also trying to help them with daily expenses to ease the stress. With a long medical road ahead for Maren, this family needs some security to ease the incredible stressors. Visit caringbridge.org/visit/marenross to share in their journey. Money donated goes directly to the Maren Ross Family Fund PayPal account.
