The Bridges, Griffith and Hurlbut families have been overwhelmed by the love and support of literally thousands of people these past few months. Kailee Bridges continues her unbelievably intense battle with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer). Just 16 days ago we thought we were saying goodbye to Kailee after she had contracted a would be fatal infection. Strong Hospital in Rochester, NY however, was able to perform an emergency high risk surgery to save Kailee’s life. Now as Kailee slowly emerges from her post surgery heavy sedation, comes word that a two-time Dove award winning musician, Bebo Norman, is willing to come to Batavia and perform a concert to benefit the family. How good and gracious is God even in the midst of the hardest of times?
There will be something different about this benefit though. This benefit will be for Kailee’s 3 month old daughter Lilly. The family’s wishes are to set up a trust fund for Lilly. Jeremiah 29:11 will be the theme verse for the event “For I know the thoughts I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Love for Lilly: A Concert of Hope with Bebo Norman will be held at Grace Baptist Church, Friday May 10th. Mother’s Day weekend will be the backdrop to this special event. Many details will be forth coming soon, including ticket information.
In the meantime your prayers are appreciated for Kailee, her husband Justin and Lilly. Kailee is fighting with everything she’s got. It wouldn’t surprise us if she made it to the concert! How about you? Will you be able to join us for what should be an incredible evening of showing love for Lilly?
