Church turns out, puts out for pastor who has leukemia
KIHEI — With prayer, helping hands and welcome-home signs, the members of Hope Chapel in Kihei have been showing their love for an associate pastor who has acute myelogenous leukemia.
The support for Kit Lauer continues Saturday when a “Run for Hope” morning of family fun is held to raise funds for his medical expenses.
The day will include 5- and 1-kilometer fun runs and walks, food, entertainment, games and more. (See related story for fun run/walk entry and other details.)
Lauer was diagnosed in early April and had been at Kaiser Moanalua Medical Center and Clinic on Oahu until last Sunday. His wife, Shelly, and her car were there, too, so they came home on the Hawaii Superferry. [more]
