Stenson Family Meal Train

Auburn, WA


Charlie has had tummy and digestive issues for some time now and has been seen quite a few times to try and find the cause. The week before Thanksgiving 2022, after having a fever for a few days and not acting like herself, Emily and Derek (Charlie’s parents) decided to trust their gut and take her to the emergency room in hopes to find some answers. After multiple tests, scans, and hospitals, they finally received the devastating news that Charlie has stage 4 cancer. She had a tumor that was about 5 inches in her abdomen and the cancer had spread to her liver. To read more about their story, check out this Blog Post written by one of Charlie's aunties where there is a more detailed timeline of everything! With hospital stays and treatment also come bills, gas expenses, and additional food costs. If you are able to contribute monetarily on top of your prayers, their Go Fund Me is The next thing will be food. We can take some stress off their plates by creating nutritious homemade meals and storing them in their freezer. There are also grocery delivery options (instacart, shipt, etc) or other gift cards! Thank you so much for thinking of our family during this time. We will continue to keep everyone as updated as possible as we learn more.
