Union Gospel Mission Center for Women and Children opened in September 2012. It is the first long-term, residential recovery center for women with children in Kootenai County. Based on the success of UGM's Women's Recovery in Spokane, the Center provides a warm, home-like setting in which to explore and confront the issues surrounding abuse, addiction and homelessness. With the love of Christ as the foundation, healing permeates body, mind and spirit, and lives are transformed from the inside out.
Tommy Spradley was diagnosed with Langerhans cell histiocytosis, a rare cancer, when he was only 2 years old. Fortunately, at that time it was only affecting his leg. Sadly, Tommy’s cancer has come back and has spread. His team of doctors believes doing chemotherapy once a week for the next year is the best course of action. With Tommy’s disease being as rare as it is, the family’s future is uncertain. Hope Sipe has started a GoFundMe on behalf of the Spradley family to help raise funds for Tommy’s chemotherapy in addition to any other medical needs (such as hospital stays, surgeries, medications, etc.). We are honored to be donating to the Spradley family this quarter, and we hope it will help and bless them during this trying time.
