Honoring Brad Booth and his legacy. We want to bring awareness to this NFP that is helping people when they are at there most vulnerable. So we are going to run the Regions Superhero 5k because Brad was a real life superhero. Please join our team and run with us or just donate to a great cause.
11/29/2017, 7 years into the battle, Brad Booth closed his eyes for the final time and won his fight with cancer. He walked right through the celestial gate and heard the words, “well done, good and faithful servant.”
In 2010, Brad Booth was diagnosed with desmoplastic small round cell tumor. The Booth's decided on MD Anderson in Houston for treatment and would be there a minimum of three months, if everything went smoothly. They began to look at apartments to rent and almost signed a $3,000 per month lease, until he met a friend in Helena who was able to connect him with the Amschwand Sarcoma Cancer Foundation. They were able to give him an apartment during his time in Houston. When he returned from Houston, Brad made it his mission to not only provide somewhere to stay for those coming to Birmingham for medical treatment, but provide a sense of community and hope for the patient and their loved ones. Brad joined the Red Mountain Grace team in its early days and worked tirelessly to support this ministry while serving as an ambassador of Christ to all of our patients, supporters and the entire Red Mountain Grace team - even through he continued to battle with cancer.
Red Mountain Grace currently has twelve apartments and services roughly 70 families annually. While the impact we are making is great, the need is even greater. Every night, there still remains a 30-40 person wait list for lodging. We ask that you help keep Brad's passion alive, by considering donating towards his legacy.
