To enrich the lives of children enduring hardships due to chronic illness or related difficulties within their families.

Our family has endured what we consider “more than our fair share” of hardships over the years! We were so blessed by the birth of our precious daughter, Tacey, nearly 12 years ago. However, that euphoria was quickly interrupted by the ugliest statement we have ever heard, “Your daughter has cancer.” Wow! How do you recover from that statement? FAITH!
Our faith has gotten us through so many hardships over the past 11+ years. Our daughter has endured more medical procedures, chemo and other meds than most adults. She lost complete eyesight to the disease. What she didn’t lose was all the incredible gifts God gave her.
She is a vivacious, energetic, positive, inspirational girl with a heart for others and a love for life, but more importantly, an incredible devotion to God and our faith! She not only inspires those she meets, but she inspires our whole family to do better, to persevere, to achieve, to serve and to enjoy life to its fullest.
I would love to say she conquered her cancer and has no more challenges in her path. However, her cancer was a type that leads to numerous issues and complications, not to mention the difficulty of leading life as a blind child in a sighted world. She encounters new challenges daily. The important thing is that she doesn’t allow her fears or challenges to rule her life or make her decisions for her. She meets challenges head-on with a determination that can’t be matched! She is amazing.
While dealing with the many trials and tribulations of her diagnosis and disability, our family has encountered so many people that have touched our lives in incredible ways. Our blessings have far outweighed our troubles! We have been blessed in so many ways it is impossible to share it all here.
Along our journey, we have also encountered other families that have inspired us, touched us with their stories and made an impact on our family. We have met children who have lost so much of their own childhood due to the difficulties, stress and issues brought to their family by a family member suffering through a chronic illness. So many times, the energy of everyone in the family is directed to getting the ailing member through the difficult times and the individuals are lost along the way.
Tacey inspired us to create this foundation to honor these heroes of families. Through Tacey’s Eyes® was established to enrich the lives of children enduring hardships due to chronic illness or related difficulties within their families. Through Tacey’s Eyes honors these children for their bravery and stamina by granting special wishes.
Thank you for your interest in assisting us in bringing some joy into the lives of these special heroes and their families!
