Brea is mommy to 3 children. She is the daughter of Charlie and Suanna Rust and wife to Keith Gammel. Brea has been unable to work for several months, due to a lesion on her pancreas, which has made her extremely ill. She has been to Little Rock, Oklahoma City and now to St Louis, where she finally has a diagnosis. Medical cost and travel expenses have really taken a financial toll on Keith and Brea. We humbly thank you in advance for any support you may be able to contribute.
