Less than 48 hours after the story on Esther Suelzle’s battle with stage 4 cancer came out, during a random business contact, a Corban dad heard of a litter of puppies that would be born this month. He immediately knew one of those pups was destined for Esther. He sent Esther’s story to the gentleman, who responded with great excitement. He and his wife have committed that Esther would get one of the puppies for just their cost. (shots, stud fees etc.)

The week of Christmas Esther can choose her puppy, who will be ready to take home the week of Valentines day. With some donations from local businesses and some cash raising by the students of Corban, we should have what we need quickly. This is where you, Corban, come in! Standing outside of chapel tomorrow will be students holding buckets where you can put your contribution, no matter how small, towards the cost of the newest edition to the Suelzle’s family!
