With the money they spent on Grace’s treatment, the Cantrell family needs everyone in our community to pitch in and help make sure Grace is well cared for in the years to come.
Bogart, GA (PRWEB) September 04, 2015
Georgia Insurance Advisors, a locally owned insurance firm serving Bogart and the surrounding communities, is launching a charity effort to provide for the family of Grace, a young local girl battling restrictive cardiomyopathy.
Commonly referred to as an enlarged heart, restrictive cardiomyopathy often leads to diastolic dysfunction – the inability to adequately move blood through the circulatory system. Without surgery and treatment, restrictive cardiomyopathy can lead to heart failure.
Grace Cantrell was diagnosed with restrictive cardiomyopathy at three years old and promptly began receiving treatment at Children's healthcare of Atlanta. Though doctors warned the Cantrells that they would likely outlive their daughter, Grace was saved by a donor heart that she received in a transplant on her fourth birthday. While the good news is that Grace is healthy and healing, her family is still struggling to manage the significant medical costs associated with her life-saving treatment.
“We are all extremely thankful that Grace is alive and well,” says Mack McClung, owner and manager of Georgia Insurance Advisors. “With the money they spent on Grace’s treatment, the Cantrell family needs everyone in our community to pitch in and help make sure Grace is well cared for in the years to come.”
Mobilizing a network of professional and personal contacts, the Georgia Insurance team is making inroads with friends, neighbors, and business associates alike as they raise awareness about Grace’s condition and seek donations that will be used to assist her family in paying off her medical treatment.
Assisting the Cantrell family is only one of several charities supported by Georgia Insurance Advisors over the last year. As part of an ongoing community involvement campaign, the Georgia Insurance team plans to assist a new local charity every two months from here forward. “Helping families like the Cantrells is what we do,” says McClung.
