We are so excited to introduce you to Boise's Got Faith's 2016 Honorees: ELOISE LAWRENCE and FRANKY CAMPOS!
Eloise Lawrence is a very happy, social 2 (almost 3)-year old who loves sparkles, chicken nuggets, babies and pigs. Surrounded by her 5 siblings and her dad and mom, there is always someone around to share her favorite activities, which include coloring, dancing, blowing bubbles, playing with play-doh and swinging. Last May, Eloise was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). She has undergone 8 months of intense chemotherapy and is scheduled to begin the maintenance stage of treatment next month. This sweet, little fighter has taken everything into stride and happily traded her beautiful curls for her new “softie” haircut (as she calls it) that comes with treatment. Eloise and her family are looking forward to Summer 2017 when Elle will officially be done with treatment!
Franky Campos is a cheerful, talkative 4-year old who is all-boy! He loves playing with cars and trucks, running, jumping, and doing anything active. He also enjoys spending time with his dad, mom, two big sisters and little brother. Last April, Franky was diagnosed with high-risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia—type B (ALL). He has responded well to the almost 9-months of intensive chemotherapy he has undergone and just began the maintenance stage of treatment. This stage should be a little bit easier and will hopefully give him the chance to “just be a kid” again as he battles through the next 2 ½ years of treatment.
Please be praying for Eloise and Franky and their families as they are in the midst of their battles.
Also, mark your calendars for SUNDAY, MAY 1st for the 5th Annual Boise's Got Faith Kid's Run, 5K, and Family Festival. 100% of the proceeds from this year's events will be going to help Eloise's and Franky's families with expenses related to their battles.
More details about our honorees, upcoming events, and how you can help will be coming soon. If you haven't already, like us on Facebook and follow us @boisesgotfaith on Twitter and Instagram.
