You all have been so kind to take the time to reach out and encourage me during my battle. Many of you know this past 2 years has been a season of much loss and heartache for me.
I was sure the worst was over until Monday, June 29, 2015, when I went to my doctor for a lump on my left breast.
To be honest, I was confident, because of healthy eating habits, that they would tell me it was a large cyst, or “worst-case scenario,” the beginning stages of cancer that could be removed in a simple surgery. To my surprise, the gynecologist immediately sent me over to the top breast cancer surgeon in Riverside County for several tests.
My faith was still strong as I awaited results, until the head doctor of radiology walked in the room and said, “You’re about to fight a battle for your life because you have one of the most aggressive forms of breast cancer and it may have already entered your lymphatic system.”
In that moment I thought, “God, haven’t I been through enough?” Then I cried out to Him in a prayer of panic, “What about my family, my daughter, my son, and my grandchildren? Who will take care of my 85 year old mom who lives with me?”
Then I heard the Lord whisper to me, “I have taken you this far; I will never leave you or forsake you.”
In that moment, I understood the battle wasn’t for my life, but a fight against the spirit of fear for my faith, family and future. Today, the cancer has gotten worse.
To be honest, it is the hardest and most humbling thing for me to ask for is help, especially after how amazing all of you have been to cover me and my family with prayer.
But last week when I saw the fear on my children’s faces after the doctor’s report about losing their mom, and the thought of not being there for my daughter’s wedding when she grows up, I knew I had to take a step of faith. I have to believe God for a miracle to provide the funds to get the urgent treatments I need to win this cancer battle.
However with that said, I know many, like myself are financially struggling. So please DON’T feel obligated to help unless our Lord is leading you.
If so, some of my precious team created a way for anyone wanting to help to give on a FIGHT FOR LIFE FUND
Thank you for taking the time to hear my heart and pray. It means so much to me. You truly are an answer to my prayers.
I’m so thankful for all of your love, prayers and for 25 years of ministry. I am believing God for many more to come!
In His love,
