Erica's Story

Erica is our neice, and we wanted to share her story...

On Wednesday, May 10th Erica received a phone call that no person can ever be prepared for. The results from her breast biopsy were in. And the results confirmed her fears. The cells were malignant and invasive. Erica, just thirty-five, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since that day, many things have changed. Erica began a raw vegetable diet, consisting of lots of juice (carrot especially), handfuls of natural oils and supplements multiple times a day, and doctor's appointments. Surgeons, nurses, oncology physicians, integrated physicians, all presenting heaping amounts of information and treatment possibilities. June 13th her chemo port will be installed. The first round of chemotherapy to begin in July. It's all so much to take in...

And throughout it all, her faith in God has been guiding her. There are sticky notes with handwritten Bible verses posted on window sills and mirrors and cupboards. She's attended prayer groups, and every morning Ames has been praying over her as she sleeps in bed before he leaves for work. Amara and Landen are reading devotionals with Ames and Erica before bed and praying for their Mother. Friends have made juice and offered support and most importantly, prayed.

And that is the purpose of this fundraiser. Because not only are we seeking to help raise funds to help pay for Erica's treatment (the cost of 20 weeks of chemotherapy, supplements to help combat the havoc chemo can have on the body, cold cap therapy, surgical costs), more importantly, we are hoping that every person that reads this will pray for Erica and her family. Pray that God will continue to work in her life and bring her the comfort and help that she is going to need moving forward. Pray for healing. And if you can give a little, great, and if you cannot, then just pray. When you're driving. Before you head to bed. Just find a quiet moment and pray for her wellness.

Thank You for reading and caring!
