Mom's Story

Our mom was recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer that has spread to her liver and lungs. On top of all of this, the aortic valve of her heart is damaged as well. With a grim prognosis (2 years at best), no great options from the doctors, and a great possibility that her heart may not tolerate traditional treatments; our mom has opted for alternative treatments. This decision has really given us all hope, especially after witnessing great success from a dear friend and learning of many others. Unfortunately, insurance does not cover this type of treatment and time is of the essence. Our plan is to start treatments within the next week. We are asking first of all for your prayers, love and support and secondly, donations to help with the financial burden. We would greatly appreciate any contributions and have provided a few options for your convenience.


  1. I'm so sorry you guys! I can't imagine what you must be going through right now. Please hang in there Judy, we are all praying and sending good thoughts your way! Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

  2. Judy, I found you through Pooba. I will pray for you and your family. I added $10 to your total and hope that it will be a small step on your road to a full recovery.

  3. I found you on NikkiCrumpet! I will certainly pray for your Mom and specifically that this treatment works! Keep the husband was diagnosed 2 years ago (stage IV as well) and wasn't expected to live 3 months. I took him out to lunch today! Keep the faith...God is so Good!
    I added a little to your fund....I hope you can start the treatments soon~

  4. Judy you wild gal! I want you to know that your in my prayers. We all miss you at Joanns and can't wait for you to come back! (At least to visit...the flat folds miss you :-) Please know that we are all thinking of you and you are in our prayers. Take care....Love ya tons!!!

  5. Found you through pooba. Just wanted to leave a note of encouragement. I was diagnosed with a stage 4 ovarian cancer 7 years ago that spread to my liver and other parts as well. Went through chemo, and had to have hysterectomy in the end. But I am now clean of cancer. It was a total miracle. Not even the docs thought I'd be able to survive. The Lord is Mighty, He did miracles and He still does. Keep strong in Him! and know that I am praying for you and your family!
