Family and friends of Fallon Schlautman, daughter of Kevin and Katie Heimbecker-Schlautman, thank everyone for their support for the "Faith for Fallon" benefit on Saturday, May 16th. 

If anyone is till wishing to help this wonderful family, a  Go Fund Me account has been set up to help provide support for Fallon or donations can also be made directly to the Faith for Fallon Benefit Fund at:
Germantown Trust & Savings Bank
PO Box 246
601 Main Street
Germantown, IL 62245

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:
