St. Cecilia Ladies Sodality Scholarship Application

Mark your calendars!  Family and friends of Fallon Schlautman, daughter of Kevin and Katie Heimbecker-Schlautman, are looking forward to hosting a "Faith for Fallon" benefit on Saturday, May 16th, 2015 at Bartelso Park. 



The fun starts at 2:00 p.m.  Activities for the day include a "Be the Match" drive, silent auction, oral auction, bocce ball tournament (4 person teams), bags tournament (2 person teams), Kids Korner, and much more for the whole family to enjoy! 


Faith has been diagnosed with SIFD Syndrome.  SIFD syndrome is a genetic disorder that has been diagnosed less than 15 times worldwide.  It is characterized by sideroblastic anemia, immunodeficiency, febrile episodes, and development delay. 


Fallon will undergo a bone marrow transplant in a couple months in hopes of curing the anemia and immunodeficiency.  Prior to the transplant, Fallon will undergo chemotherapy to wipe out her immune system so a new one can take over.  We continue to hope and pray all symptoms will respond to the transplant. 


Additional information on SIFD can be found at link below:
