Cainan Craun Celebration of Life

Cainan's Story

Cainan Donald Craun, or Cainan Rex as he liked to refer to himself, was born on July 11, 2010, in Dayton, Ohio. Cainan was an amazing brother to Gideon Craun and son to Gina and Patrick Craun.

At the age of two, Cainan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Cainan became a hero in many hearts overnight. The amount of love and joy that he held and shared with others was amazing. His story of courage and strength quickly spread among friends and loved ones. 

We learned early that Cainan’s battle was going to be unique. After a bone marrow transplant, he thrived only to relapse a short 17 months later. After his relapse Cainan was given the opportunity to take part in a new, ground-breaking study where he received genetically engineered T cell immunotherapy (Cainan’s superhero cells). In July of 2017 Cainan was medically “cured” of leukemia. Cainan beat leukemia not once, but twice.

Unfortunately in August of 2017, our world was turned upside down once again when Cainan was diagnosed with grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM), a rare and aggressive form of a brain cancer in children. It became clear that the odds were stacked against us given Cainan’s history and the genetic information that we learned through this journey. We buckled down and continued to fight, not giving up our faith and hope in Jesus. After an aggressive surgery and targeted radiation plan, Cainan began to bounce back. Unfortunately on January 20, 2018, God called Cainan home to the biggest playground in the sky with endless LEGOs and Pokémon. Cainan fought hard, and now can ultimately rest in Jesus' arms.

Service Info

We welcome you to join us for a celebration of Cainan’s life at our family’s church this Saturday, January 27. Medway Church is located at 2550 S. Dayton-Lakeview Rd, New Carlisle, OH 45344. The service will start at 10 a.m. Please dress casual and wear your Cainan shirts if you have them. This is your chance to be a kid again and celebrate his life with us.

We ask that instead of flowers, blankets, or memorial gifts, that you would purchase a new, unopened toy (Matchbox cars, plastic dinosaurs, small figures, super heroes, or craft supplies) that can be dropped off at the service and will be donated to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Child Life. These toys will be used for children to play with during their stay at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and their Liberty Campus.

If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, please consider: The Dragonfly Foundation, or A Kid Again. Both of these organizations provided a number of opportunities for Cainan and our family to live life to the fullest and enjoy experiences that helped Cainan look past his fight with cancer. A donation in his honor would be a blessing to our family.

Christmas Offering

Every year, we challenge families to do Christmas differently from the way the world does Christmas in the hope that it will make a difference in your family and your relationship with God. Plan for the Best Christmas Ever:

  1. Cut way back on stuff and spend as much on God’s house as you do your house.
  2. Write letters to your family and open and read the letters before you open presents.
  3. Look for opportunities to invite as many people as possible to Christmas Eve and come to Christmas Eve Service as a whole family and put God first.

Any funds this year given to the Christmas offering will be divided between our recovery / community ministries and our children's ministry / expansion project. You may designate this gift by writing “Christmas” on your check or envelope.

Christmas Eve is an awesome family tradition. Come one service; serve another. Sign up below.

Treat Your Street


What is "Treat Your Street"?

"Treat Your Street" is an opportunity for our Medway small groups to show radical hospitality to friends and neighbors right where we live. Groups are encouraged to work together to come up with a way to go "above and beyond the fun-size candy bar" for the children (and adults) that are out trick or treating. 


When Is It?

"Treat Your Street" is meant to coincide with your neighborhood's scheduled Trick-or-Treat times. If you are not sure when your night is, check with the local news or click the button below.


How Does It Work?

I'm so glad you asked!

Pick Your Treat

Talk to your small group and come up with a special treat to give out on your neighborhood's Trick-or-Treat night. You can try hot chocolate, hot coffee, or even hot dogs.


Choose a home or location to gather at. Set up your "treat station" in the driveway. Don't forget to let us know when and where your group will be meeting.

then you choose a

Place To Meet


now it's time to

Treat Your Street

Show some radical hospitality by sharing your treats with kids and adults as they trick or treat through your neighborhood.


Pick up some Invite Cards from the Guest Services Desk and use them to invite your friends and neighbors to join you for worship at Medway Church.

and don't forget to

Save A Seat


Wow... That Was Fun!!!

After your group has had the opportunity to bless your friends and neighbors, let us know about your experience. Head over to our Facebook page and share photos or stories about your Treat Your Street experience.
