We are the Hall Family: Brady, Matt, Sanders, Shephard and Sawyer.
On August 23, 2013 our lives were forever changed by hearing the words “Shephard has cancer.” No child should ever have to suffer from such a horrible disease! Though some view it as not the most ideal of circumstances, we knew from the very beginning that God was going to use Shep’s cancer for His glory. We’ve been blessed every step of the way.
Matt and I are passionate about helping families in the area who have a child battling cancer, therefore we started Shephard’s Flock, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. The families we support have childhood warriors who are battling cancer at USA Children’s and Women’s hospital in Mobile, AL. The Run for Shep is currently our largest fundraiser. We have been overwhelmed by all of the support from local businesses and families for the first three years of the race. Last year we had over 450+ registrants! The money raised benefitted local families with the non-medical expenses (food, gas cards, groceries, etc.) related to treatment. We were also able to provide the patient treatment areas at the hospital with I-pads and several other distraction therapies for a child undergoing treatment. We are really excited about the opportunity to give back to the community that has blessed us by giving so much over Shep’s time in treatment.
