Meet another strong survivor, Trevor

"Trevor was diagnosed on July 4th with Hodgkin's lymphoma stage 3b . He has put up a good fight. He just finished his 4th round of chemo. The next one starts September 30th. He is a brave 13 year old. He will have 14 straight radiation treatments after chemo is finished. We are very hopeful that he will make a full recovery.

Let's all come together to pause for a moment today to pray for sweet Trevor and his family.  Thank you to everyone who donates to make our Wallets of Love program a success so that families like this who need us can reach out to help.

Introducing Jeanie.....

"I am a 42 year old mother of 3 that was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on April 1, 2015. I was in Dallas for daily IV chemo for one month of inpatient and then daily outpatient iv chemo up until the end of August.  I have returned home to Abilene to my family and it is wonderful to see my children daily. I will be on oral chemo for 2 years. I have monthly follow up appointments in Dallas and your gift cards will be very useful during this time. I am an RN and was the director of a Home Health Agency up until the day of my diagnoses. I am no longer employed. Finances are a huge struggle, but I am very grateful to be alive and here to worry about them! Your gift will definitely help so much! Thank you again!"

Another wonderful survivor who is receiving a Wallet of Love today from our program and who needs your prayers today, please join us in lifting her up today with healing thoughts!  Thank you for sharing your story with us Jeanie, we are all praying for a FULL recovery!

Meet this beautiful survivor Nicole!!!

"My name is Nicole & I am a breast cancer survivor. I am a 41 year old single divorced mother of 3 & I have custody of my 1 year old great nephew whom I have been raising & taking care of since he was 2 months old. I went & had my very 1st Mammogram on September 26, 2014 after I turned 40. I put it off a little while but one day when I was taking a shower that’s when I felt the huge lump.  After my mammogram appointment I was sent for a biopsy & that’s when I was told I had Invasive Ductal Carcinomia.  Everything went crazy for me! I cried & was afraid. I prayed a lot. I was told I had to have a mastectomy. I had my left breast removed & had to go through chemotherapy. I have had 4 surgeries so far & I still have one more to go on.  My life has truly changed a lot. The good thing about my diagnosis is that it gave me a closer walk with God. Its been hard for me because I am a single parent, but I won't complain because I’m just grateful to be alive.  If I had to give any advice for others going thru this, I would say trust God, remain positive & enjoy every single day that God gives you! I pray nobody has to endure this & I pray that they find a cure. God bless you!"

We see you and hear you Nicole, you WILL beat this and be so much stronger because of it. Nicole is one of our Wallet of Love recipients for September!!  THIS is what we do with your wonderful donations!   Everyone, please lift Nicole up today in prayer, what a wonderful, STRONG woman she is and a great example of my favorite verse, Proverbs 31:25 "She is clothed with strength and dignity and laughs without fear of the future."  You have an army of prayer warriors going to work for you today Nicole, be ready to RECEIVE today!!
