The Lafreniere Family is raising support to hire an ALS home care specialist to assist Abby six days a week. At $75 a day, this specialist will provide Abby with the proper care needed to help with the challenge of living with ALS.

Our Story

In August of 2013, Abby was diagnosed with a disease called ALS or more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. This is a terminal disease with no known cure. Please pray for a miracle. Despite this diagnosis, my family and I have been determined to press on and start Fairfield Baptist Church in Fairfield, Connecticut, and we have been amazed at God’s blessing over the last two years.

ALS has taken a toll on Abby’s mobility. Much of my time is spent on the day-to-day care for my crippled wife and toddler age son, Elijah. In addition to the needs of my family, we are also attempting to grow a new church. Both Abby and I agree that we need better care for her in order for us to continue the work God has called us to do.

Our Need

Our need is to hire a home care specialist to better assist Abby and her growing needs living with ALS. The specialist would provide in home care, which would be a tremendous blessing for Abby to get the proper care she needs. With my wife properly taken care of, I will also be able to devote more time and energy into the needed growth of Fairfield Baptist Church.

Our Goal

As of now, our goal is to raise the funds for one year of Abby’s in-home care, which would be a tremendous blessing to our family. Please consider supporting us at one of the following levels:

Monthly Check Support: Pledge support for one day a month for 12 months. By supporting, you are pledging $75/month for a total of $900.
Half Day:
 Pledge one-time support of $37.50 to pay for a half-day of Abby’s care.
Whole Day: Pledge one-time support of $75 to pay for one whole day of Abby’s care.
One Week: Pledge one-time support of $450 to pay for one week of Abby’s care.
One Month: Pledge one-time support of $1,950 to pay for one month of Abby’s care.
Any Amount: Pledge one-time support of any amount that’s right for you.

Above all – we ask you to pray for a miracle that my wife will be cured. Please pray for my family and the Fairfield Baptist Church!
