Please donate money to help the Luebbe family. Every gift counts!

We are heartbroken to say that Jim Luebbe passed away at home July 13, surrounded by his family.

Throughout his battle with brain cancer, Jim fought with great dignity. Doctors and nurses were continually stunned at his ability to fight the cancer, but those of us who knew him were not. There was something special about Jim, a steely strength beneath his gentle, calm exterior.

In the face of this horrible disease, Jim and Cathy spread their message of love and faith to all of us who know and love them. Their love story and their bravery are embodied in their infant son Sam, whose birth they celebrated in January 2012.

Cathy now needs our help to pay for medical costs, the costs of daily living and to establish a college fund for Sam. Please donate to the Luebbes to help us exceed our fundraising goal. Throughout this cancer journey, Jim and Cathy talked about repaying all the good that has come their way. We're assuring Cathy that "paying it forward" can happen in the future, but for now, they should accept these gifts for what they are -- our ways of conveying love and support for their family.

We believe that Jim's struggles have ended, yet we know that Cathy, Sam and their extended families have much healing to do. Please continue to pray for them.
