Strader Family

The Power of Prayer

I know Sterling, Il is not your area but there is going to be a Human Prayer Chain surrounding the block of the Strader Home on Sunday the 17th of Feb. Jessica Strader has been battling Breast Cancer since 2010 at the young age of 26. She was diagnosed while 7 1/2 months pregnant with her now almost 3 year old daughter Khloe. She had her mastectomy and delivered her daughter (a month early so she could start chemo)at OSF in Peoria and doctored here. She did most of her treatments in Princeton and Ottawa since it was closer to her home. She has had Gamma Knife radiation on her brain three times and has just recently been in and out of the Sterling hospital with horrible back pain due to the cancer that has spread to her spine. She is now resting at home with her family and they are trying to keep her comfortable with morphine. Jessica also has a 9 year old son (Dominique)and an unbelievable husband (Jared). The support in their community is unreal. There is so much more to this story but it would take days to write. I was informing you of this in case you would want to cover it. "Team Jess" is to meet Sunday the 17th at the Challand Middle School in Sterling, Il and then we will all walk to the Strader home in hopes to have enough people (I don't think it will be a problem) to surround the block. Thank you for your time!
