I have had the pleasure of knowing Lance Van Grouw since the second grade when he and my son Brandon became friends. It was a joy watching Lance grow up — always with a smile on his face, a positive attitude, a kind word to say and amazing athletic ability. I was naturally devastated then last August when Brandon called to say that Lance had suffered a spinal cord injury (C-5) while slip n’ sliding with his friends.

Many of you have been touched by Lance’s story as well. You may know him personally or you may have heard his story from someone who does. Maybe you have followed the family’s updates over the past year on care pages — The Van Grouw family is so humbled and thankful for the amazing support that they have received over the past year. God has blessed them in countless ways in the midst of this life- changing tragedy.

Hi lance, my name is Doug, Blake garrisons dad. When you first had your accident there were some wrist bands that were handed out. I got one and started wearing it on my wrist. I still have it on my wrist and have never taken it off. I pray for you all the time. I hope you are doing well, I will continue to pray for Gods healing in your life. He is a good God! Love ya bro!

Doug garrison
