Hearing the big “C” word is devastating for any family, but it is particularly so when the diagnosis comes to a young mother of four young children. Amy has bilateral breast cancer – stage 3. She was diagnosed in October and has had to this date, three chemo treatments. She is facing a series of chemo, surgery, more chemo, more surgery, more chemo and then reconstructive surgery. It will be a long painful process. Amy’s husband is a minister in our community and their four children are ages 6 and under. Brent has been an awesome husband and daddy, taking care of Amy and the children. Their church has provided a lot of support in terms of food, cleaning, babysitting, etc.
I have several purposes for sharing her story with you. First of all, I ask you to pray for Amy, Brent, and the children. Pray that God will heal Amy’s body. She is a precious, Godly woman and has been a blessing in many lives. She wants to be able to see her children grow up. Pray that God will give Brent the day to day strentgth he will need to meet the day to day challenges which will be coming his way for many months to come. Pray for the children because this is very hard on them as well.
Secondly, I want to tell you about the Pink Trailer. I think this is the most wonderful idea to help Brent and Amy with medical expenses. Please understand that I put little to nothing about donations on this blog. Experience has taught me to be skeptical first and then trusting second. Well, here I am very trusting. I encourage you to log on to http://pinktrailer.blogspot.com
This website shares the details of a precious 1973 Shasta compact trailer which has been done in pink—so very fitting since Amy is in Mary Kay. This trailer is being raffled at $5.00 a ticket. Check it out!
I will be writing more about Amy soon. She is an amazing woman. I have learned several things from her about handling the emotional aspects of this disease.
