LAPEL, IN - Trinity UMC Children’s Ministry Team is helping to raise funds for Trevor Cobb’s upcoming surgery.
Trevor is a local 12 year old who was diagnosed 3 years ago with bone cancer in his tibia. Trevor has undergone 12 months of chemo and two unsuccessful surgeries.
His family has found a doctor in South Palm Beach, Florida that is very optimistic about a full recovery. Trevor will be going to Florida for the surgery at the end of August and will have to stay there about six months for rehab and therapy.
The surgery and treatments are very expensive. In addition, Trevor and his mom, Deanna, will have living expenses while away from home.
Trevor and his twin brother are in the sixth grade at East Elementary in Pendleton. He will be trying to keep up with school work with the help of his brother and teachers using “Face Time”. Mitchell and dad, Brian, will be staying at home but will have travel expenses as they journey to visit with Trevor during the rehab process.
A green wrist band with “F.R.O.G. for Trevor” in blue will be given to each donor. (F.R.O.G. stands for Fully Rely on God.) Bands are available at Trinity UMC, Pendleton Christian Church, and Pendleton 1st UMC. Donations are tax-deductible. Make your check payable to: Trinity UMC and write “Medical” on the memo line. And of course, cash is always welcome!
