Support a totally rockin' cause. Donations to help Christy McDonald in her battle with Breast Cancer!!!

On August 13, 2012 a call from the doctor would change the McDonald’s lives forever – “its breast cancer.” September 4th, Christy had a double mastectomy and removal of sixteen lymph nodes. Immediately following that procedure she had a Tram Flap surgery which removes muscles and fat in the abdomen and rebuilds  natural looking breast. She is doing well but still weak in the abdomen, chest, and back area. She just started Chemotherapy which begins a yearlong regimen of treatment. There will be many challenges, from being nauseous to losing her hair, but she will weather the storm with courage, faith and hope. Courage to be strong, even when she is scared; faith that God is the calming force; hopeful that He will deliver her to safety.


A little bit about Christy. Christy is native to the Louisville area. She is 37 years old and has been married to her best friend, Brian McDonald since 2002. They have two vibrant boys together, Jacob 6 and Harrison who is 2 years old. Her passion in life is being a mother. Aside from spending time with her own little family, she LOVES making memories with her sisters, fathers, grandparents, and other family members. She especially likes everyone to get together to cheer on those Cardinals! Other things she enjoys are working in the garden, bird watching and last but not definitely not least learning God’s word. His word has well prepared her for the storms that lie ahead.


Christy and Brian thank you from the bottom of their hearts. They have been brought to tears on many occasions due to your kindness. Many continue to ask “What more can I do to help?” Please join us at 7:00 p.m. November 10th at Zazoo’s 102 Bauer Avenue, Louisville, KY 40207 (St. Matthew’s). There will be live bands and a silent auction to benefit Team McDonald. If you cannot join us, you can donate on-line or by cash or check to one of the organizers.  Proceeds will go toward medical bills and other expenses to help get them through this upcoming year. Thank you and Praise be God.
