Sudden Cardiac Arrest Informational Meeting

Did you know that there is a difference between a sudden cardiac arrest and a heart attack?  On Thursday, January 16th, Katie Terrell from Piedmont Healthcare will be on campus for an informational meeting about sudden cardiac arrest.  The presentation will include how to recognize symptoms and the first steps to take for someone experiencing these symptoms.  All interested students and parents are invited to attend.  The time and location of the meeting will be available in the coming days.  If you have any questions, please contact Steve Crouse, scrouse@wcalions.org.

As we go through our days, please remember to keep the following WCA families in your prayers. Also, please email Tami Butts (tbutts@wcalions.org) with updated and/or new prayer requests.  It is an honor to pray for each other.

  • Please be in prayer for the Kreiger family as they learned before Christmas that Anderson's (11th grade) leukemia had recurred.  He is currently in Children's Healthcare in Atlanta receiving initial treatments which may ultimately include a bone marrow transplant.  Sally (Teacher, 1st Grade) is posting updates and immediate prayer concerns through the Caring Bridge website (see link below).  Anyone wishing to support the Kriegers during this time, please contact 1st-grade parent, Heather Watson - sassyheather@gmail.com.  Thank you for keeping Sally, Jon, Anderson and Ian (WCA Class of 2018) in your prayers. 
  • Please continue to pray for our art teacher, Jackie Kirsche, as she walks through her cancer journey.  Jackie is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments and the wonderful news is that recent test results indicate that the treatments are being effective against her cancer.  Unfortunately, Jackie is experiencing some side effects which are modifying her treatment schedule. Specific prayer requests are that these chemotherapy drugs will continue to prove effective against her cancer, that her side effects will be minimized and that her immune system will be protected during this time of year when germs are so easily shared.  Thank you for remembering Jackie, her husband Kevin and children Berkley (class of 2013), Sierra (class of 2016) and Hadley (class of 2018).
  • Please be in continued prayer for Kim Hardwick, WCA teacher, who has undergone treatment for recurrent melanoma.  Kim's December scans showed no sign of disease.  This is a huge praise and answer to prayers!  Thank you for remembering her husband, Steve and their children (Ben - Class of 2018, Anna - 11th, Cary - 8th and Ella - 6th) during this time. Kim has set up a caring bridge site where she can share information about her journey.

Prayer requests are included here at the request, or with the permission of the family.
