The Story

Contribute here to help Brenda meet alternative cancer treatment costs in her fight for life.


ABOUT BRENDA

Raised in Alabama, educated in TV production at Regent University, worked nationally and internationally, Brenda was transplanted to Los Angeles to use her talent to be salt and light in Hollywood. She labored for years working with Inter-Mission - the largest group of Christian entertainment professionals that spawned many of the Hollywood ministries and God ordained projects we now see in the current landscape. 

Brenda relocated to the south to help care for family, served the Lord and produced projects in the faith film/TV market in Atlanta & Nashville.  Things took a sharp turn in her life recently.

BRENDA WRITES, 
"I  still can't believe this, but in July, I was diagnosed with Clear Cell Carcinoma/Endometrial Cancer.  What's worse is that I am one of the 5% of  the women who has gotten the rare, aggressive type of mutation that is ChemoTherapy resistant. It also has a higher probability of recurrence.

The initial treatment required a hysterectomy that resulted in a very serious infection from my hospital stay. My body was literally being starved causing me to lose an additional 12 lbs in 3 weeks due to the severe reaction from infection & antibiotic.

Having the chemo resistant mutation plus the sensitivity and reaction to antibiotics, I began to do a lot of research and prayed for wisdom and guidance.  A friend recommended an advanced alternative treatment facility (2000 miles away from home) that works by strengthening the whole body. It was successful in curing his cancer. The doctors don't treat just the symptom but find the root cause(s) of the cancer--malabsorption of vitamins/minerals, poor oxygen, etc--and educates the patient throughout the process.

I’m in uncharted territory so naturally you don’t want to make a wrong decision regarding one’s life.  Since there was no time to wait I took a huge step of faith to move forward with holistic treatment protocols. I've moved into the 2nd phase of my cancer treatment and using the best weapons I can find for my situation in fighting this rare cancer. I would like to ask you to join me in this battlePlease read the need below under, How Can I Help?

Thank you for your prayers and support. I know God is with me and will keep you posted of my progress  - Brenda

HOW CAN I HELP?

  • Contribute here to help cover the medical costs. ($40K--less than one round of chemo) 
  • Pray for Brenda's healing and financial provision 
  • Spread the word, make referrals and share this link so others can be on this community showing love for one another.

Brenda Writes 

"This past Friday, I had an unscheduled, long overdue "controlled" cry (in public--3 times). I haven't had the luxury to slow down since getting the news, then surgery, then recovery, research, treatment, financial matters (medically/non-medical), home therapies. I appreciate your continued support and prayers. I'm in GA now getting treatment. I'm hoping to be back in California in a couple of weeks. Waiting the news from Mercy Medical Angels/American Cancer Society for travel plans.  Love, heartfelt appreciation!" - Brenda,  November 5, 2016

Here are some current, specific prayer requests for Brenda:

  • People to assist Brenda as she is juggling everything -
  • Pray for "Hyperintense" cyst they found on her MRI - that it will vanish or be nothing
  • Pray for wisdom for Brenda & doctors in treatment & plan
  • Details for Brenda's upcoming trip to CA & GA to come together 
  • Financial provision to cover medical expenses and bills
