Team Ashley is having a fundraiser for Ashley Grantham and his family

Team Ashley is having a fundraiser for Ashley Grantham and his family. Friday, May 13 from 11:00am - 2:00pm at the Elgin IGA. WPUB 102.7 will be there live from 11-4 and we will have a bake sale and hot dog sale! Lanette Hayes asks everyone please come and help out! Any donations and bake goods that can be supplied will be greatly appreciated. Thanks to the IGA for hosting this event.

Ashley is a 37 year old Lugoff man who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Ashley is your average family man. He is happily married to Christy Grantham and they together have 2 daughters and 2 sons.They lost their youngest daughter Carma Grantham last year and in September his father Charles Hayes of Bishopville lost his battle to cancer. After this tough past year Ashley has turned his life around and you can find him at every service at El Bethel Faith Community Church. Ashley said it doesn't matter how long the doctors give him that he serves a miracle working God. It just amazes me how he is keeping his faith and not letting the cancer get him down. He started chemo in Columbia and his body has taken it well. He doesn't want anyone to treat him like he's sick or feel sorry for him because it's not over, they are just doctors they can't do miracles and then he ends it with "God is good". Ashley took a leave of absence from working, but his bills have not stopped coming in so that's why I've been trying to raise money in every way that I can think of. There is a love offering account open at all First Citizens branches in the name of "Team Ashley Grantham"
