Updated: More Help is Needed, More Fun-Raising Events!

Dear Friends, Family, and Neighbors,

As many of you know, a group of us have formed to help the Lightners in their journey to find a cure for their 13 year old son, Glenn, who has been courageously fighting brain cancer for many years, with a strong fight taking him all the way to Europe from March to July of this year. Glenn received treatments in Belgium and Germany that would not have been possible without your help and generosity. The community of Long Valley and many other individuals, groups, and organizations have been extremely thoughtful, caring, generous, prayful, and supportive of Glenn and his family. This support has been gratefully appreciated by the Lightners as they struggle to help their son. Please see the Long Valley Patch article below to get a glimpse of what the Lightners have been going through and how your generosity and helping hearts and hands have helped them.

Glenn has just returned to Belgium and Germany again this past weekend, after a short stay at home with his family in Long Valley. We know that you have given so much of your time, ideas, fundraisers, and monetary donations, however, the need for fundraisers is still present, as the family continues with Glenn’s treatment, seeking every avenue possible to save their son. With this in mind, we are again asking for your help.
We have the following fundraisers planned that we hope you will find fun and enjoyable. Please plan to participate in one or as many as you wish.

*  Mt. Airy Casino Bus Trip  *  Tough Mudder Sponsorship

We hope that you will be able to reach out again to help this local family. We also ask for your help in spreading the word. Please forward this email to all friends and family and post it on Facebook.

Your support is what keeps the Lightners going. Thank you again for everything you have done. Please continue to keep Glenn in your prayers.

Sincerely ,

The Rally in the Valley Team

    I pray for your son in this terrible fight. We also went to Belgium to the grat Dr Van Gool and Femke. Last winter also went to NIH dr Howard Fine for experimental treatment. Our fabulous never complaining son Alex died July 1 after 5 years. Most of them great the last 4 mo with nausea,poor movement just dreadful. Crippling for a mother to watch. Thank God for hospice.
