Hi Friends and Family!
Many of you continue to ask us if there is anything more that you can do to help us through this journey. Let me first say, we are overwhelmingly grateful that your hearts are directed toward us in such a compassionate manner. The amount of love, encouragement, support, and prayer that we are still receiving from everyone means more than we can even begin to tell you. Not only has God continued to carry us through this adventure, but you all have as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I’m nearing the light at the end of the tunnel! The end of treatment is in sight! However, this continues to be a daily battle, and as the doctors have said, will continue to be cumulative. Some days, it sure does feel like it! Now that I’m back on to my “big” chemotherapy rounds, my energy and physical strength is going to take another big dive. I’m already dealing with fun side effects from this first round- oh boy. Still trying to keep my head up and gut it out; I’m NOT giving up…dammit. (And as much as my middle fingers are getting pretty sore, they still have some communicating to do with cancer!)
So, back to that awkward point when I ask for help… Do I have to? I’ve never done this before, and it seems quite uncomfortable. Here goes nothin’. Some of you are aware of the meal registry that my mother set up for me immediately following surgery. We got an enormous amount of responses and people who signed up. I, honestly, was amazed! However, over time and as radiation was underway, the need for meals became less pressing. The time has come again, where meals will be a great assistance to us. If you would like to help us in this way, I have attached the link to this registry below. For those who are out of town, and are wondering how to drive thousands of miles to deliver your homemade lasagna, don’t fret! There’s an easier way. Through this website, you can send gift cards to restaurants. We will receive the meal cards in the mail and be able to use them accordingly. And frankly, a night out every now and then really helps freshen our spirits!
Thank you again for all who follow my fight through cancer, and stand as warriors beside me. It truly makes this battle a lot less daunting. If you have any questions or need further direction with the Meal Baby registry, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”
