EIA Fall Fundraiser: Helping Hands For Jace
This holiday season, EIA is featuring a fundraiser that’s close to our hearts called “Helping Hands For Jace.” All the money raised will benefit a very brave kid named Jace Halsell. Here is his story:
Jace Halsell, who is only 11 years old, has been diagnosed with AVM, a malformation located in the center of his brain. Because of the location of the AVM, it is not surgically treatable. The only true option his family has is to monitor Jace for the rest of his life and pray that the malformation never ruptures.
Because of the severe nature of Jace’s condition, “routine” doctor visits are no longer routine. Something as simple as coughing and sneezing can be alarming enough to require extensive and expensive testing to ensure the AVM has not become worse.
The kinds of tests the Halsell family will have to pay for are very expensive and will come on short notice. And because there are no doctors in Lubbock that have the expertise necessary, they will also be required to travel out of town or out of state in order to get the high level of medical treatment Jace will need.
Jace’s story has touched all of us at EIA. He is truly a special kid. Through all of the tests, trials, appointments, and doctors visits, he keeps a smile on his face. He’s an inspiration to us all.
If you haven’t already, please consider making a donation of $10 or more. Your generosity will help Jace get the medical treatment he needs. Thank you to those that have donated!
Together, through helping hands, we can make a difference in his life. Stay strong, Jace!
