Family and friends of Eddie Creer are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.
Eddie has chosen to fundraise with HelpHOPELive in part because HelpHOPELive assures fiscal accountability of funds raised and tax deductibility for donors. Donors can be sure that funds donated will be used only to pay or reimburse medically-related expenses. Statement from Eddie:
. . . that they bring an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with with his heart . . . Exodus 25:2
Every man according as he purposed in his heart, [so let him give;] not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. II Corinthians 9:7
. . . as [God] hath prospered him . . . I Corinthians 16:2
The KU Medical Hospital estimates the amount of a bone marrow transplant (BMT) as $250,000. This does not include incidental expenses incurred as a result of trips that must be made to Kansas City for the BMT nor any follow up that could possibly arise. Our resources available are $125,000. Since the diagnosis, we have used nearly $20,000 of those resources locally. Considering the above statistics, our fundraising goal (and the thermometer on this page) is set at $150,000. The cost could vary greatly depending on whether the BMT is complex or simple, cost reductions and other factors. Up to this point KU has routinely given us a 30% reduction on the bills thus far. If they continued, the fundraising goal would be lowered to about $70,000.
Christian Healthcare Ministries (www.chministries.org) is the source of the $125,000. They have also been working with KU Med as our advocates in cost reduction. Their goal is a reduction of 50%.
In determining if and how to contribute, please consider the following steps.
1. Pray. Ask God for wisdom and guidance first and foremost. Let this be a time to focus on Him.
2. As God prospers you, check your heart. God wants you to give from a willing and cheerful heart. Do what makes your heart sing!
3. For those who live around Salina, come to the benefit dinner April 14 to celebrate God’s faithfulness. If coming to Salina is not possible, mail in your contribution or donate online as God moves you.

Mr. Creer what a blessing it was to have been one of your student's in Varsity Chorus. Such a giving smile you had every day even when things were crazy in class. I trust and pray God will multiply this giving to enable you to be treated and ease your mind in this time of need. I pray the blood of Jesus will heal you and make you strong and over come this sickness. God is with you every step of this trial. God Bless

Hi Mr. Creer, I'm not sure if you will remember me; I am a former New Dawn Singer from the class of 1988. I have thought of you many times over the years & often wondered if you were still teaching at South. Of the memories I have of high school, singing with New Dawn is among the very best. We had a good group of kids, but I know that having you as our teacher made the whole experience as special & wonderful as it was! May God bless you throughout your treatment and recovery. Please know you will continually be in my thoughts & prayers.
