Living a Life of Awesome

Wayne and Lori Earl

Lori and Wayne Earl are the parents of the late Esther Earl and founders of the nonprofit organization This Star Won’t Go Out (tswgo.org), whose mission it is to financially assist families struggling through the journey of a child living with cancer. To date, TSWGO has given away more than $175,000 to families in need.  Faced at age 12 with terminal cancer, Esther lived her four remaining years with empathy, joy, and compassion.  Recently, Lori and Wayne collected Esther's writings into a book, This Star Won't Go Out:  The Life and Words of Esther Grace Earl.

Esther’s parents dedicated her book to “all who long to live fully and love deeply no matter the obstacle or length of days.” However, these values can only be lived out in compassionate community, which is not always easy to develop. Considering Esther’s life, we are reminded that it’s possible to find the courage to live joyfully, lovingly and meaningfully especially as we face life’s overwhelming challenges.
