Garage sale to help out Battle Ground family battling diseases

Posted: Updated:
VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Family, friends and complete strangers are helping a Battle Ground couple get through a difficult time.

Brian Epp is battling Lou Gehrig's disease and his wife Jennie Epp is going through chemotherapy as she battles cancer.

They're unable to work and their medical bills are piling up, so a friend organized a garage sale to help them out.

Thursday was the first day of the sale.

"This is a lot for us to deal with, going through chemotherapy and my husband with ALS and trying to know how to deal with major health issues and still be a normal family with three boys," Jennie Epp said. "It's just been huge."

The garage sale runs through Sunday at the intersection of Northeast 107th Street and 117th Avenue in the Orchards area of Vancouver.

This isn't the first time the community has rallied around the Epp family.

Last year, FOX 12 interviewed the couple after friends helped rebuild their home to make it wheelchair accessible for Brian Epp.
