On August 23, 2010, our daughter, Kristina, was diagnosed with a rare cancer called Clear Cell Sarcoma. One intense year went by full of chemotherapy and surgery and fear and prayer and peace.
One year later, in October of 2011, Make-A-Wish granted Kristina’s greatest desire: to be a voiceover in the next VeggieTale video! Our whole family was flown to Nashville, TN, picked up by a limo, and taken to Franklin to the VeggieTales Studios.
We had so much fun! Kristina was on cloud 9 the whole trip. And the VeggieTales staff went waaaay out of their way to make us feel like we were all their guests of honor! Now the video is about to be released! But we get to watch it in advance on October 13 at Kingwood Bible Church!
It’s awesome how God works things out. The Kristina Barrett Fund (the donations for her hospital/doctor bills) is ready to be revamped. So we’re gonna make a big celebration of it!
On Saturday, October 13, our friends are throwing Kristina a fun celebration for her voiceover in the VeggieTale video The League of Incredible Vegetables. And YOUR INVITED!
This will be a fun way to raise funds for Kristina’s hospital bills. There is no admission fee, but we will accept donations for coming to watch the video on our church’s big screen. We will also be selling DVDs of the video with Kristina’s autograph, “Praying for Kristina” T-shirts, Chick-fil-a sandwiches, baked goods, and other stuff.
Bring the whole family to play fun VeggieTales games!
The date is Saturday, October 13 at 12:00pm. Mark your calendar now!
Can’t Go But Wanna Give?
If you are unable to attend the celebration but would like to donate to the Kristina Barrett Fund, that would be just awesome! Please make checks out to the Kristina Barrett Fund. Send to:
