Wyoming Central School was hosting a fundraiser for Kailee Bridges the weekend after the Superbowl. That event would be Kailee’s last “public” appearance, a goodbye to her hometown. I threw a video together (rather quickly) to share with the community on the blog and for the event. What happened blew me away. This post was viewed by the thousands in the coming days and this blog became the home for people to hear and see the latest about Kailee. Traffic would be in the 10’s of thousands over the next 3 months as we chronicled Kailee’s journey and led up to “Love for Lilly.” People have told me they can no longer listen to this song either at all or without tears since this post. My hope is this will serve as a help for anyone still grieving. Kailee knew Jesus and she is with Him now and we must find a way to rejoice in that truth.
Here is the original post.
Cancer is a battle of endurance. Along the way one can become “worn” by this battle. Kailee Bridges is undergoing her fourth round of Chemo this weekend. Next up is a scan to help determine the next course of action. The options are between bad and worse. This is a daunting position for anyone to be in. Especially someone who has yet to even turn 20.
Saturday night the Wyoming & Warsaw Communities along with several from the Grace Baptist family will gather at the Wyoming School to eat some spaghetti and to help raise support for Kailee. (Read more about Kailee’s cancer story here). Here is a video I hope will inspire you to pray for Kailee, her husband Justin and their 2 month old baby girl Lilly.
