The Story

Our friend, Lee Lofland’s daughter, Ellen, is experiencing tough times. She has cancer and is suffering bouts of unbearable pain and complications, which hinder the healing process.


It really is an uphill battle because she’s undergoing extensive radiation and facing aggressive chemotherapy. But she’s a fighter and with our help, she’s going to kick the snot out of this stuff.


Having gone through a life-threatening experience with my son, I can tell you the healing process is not only heartbreaking—it’s stressful on everyone. My son was in the hospital six weeks. During that time it was an emotional roller coaster ride. Finances were tight and the medical bills were skyrocketing, which added a lot of stress to a difficult situation.


Thankfully, our God is faithful. Strangers would come up to me, press money into my hand and whisper, “The Lord told me to give this to you.” Every dollar helped and was much appreciated.


You may not know Ellen, but Jesus does. Will you help her? Please.

Daughter and Mother-in-Law Updates: Today is a better day for  Ellen. She's still experiencing some severe, but intermittent, bone pain  and nausea. However, she is able to get out of bed and move to the  couch and even enjoy a few activities such as reading and watching  television.  Next is a scan on Friday followed by radiation beginning on  Monday. She has immensely enjoyed reading the books you've sent.  They've helped occupy her mind during these troubling times. The  blankets, socks, hats, etc. have helped keep her warm and cozy. 

Mother-inLaw - She's doing well after a bout with a nasty bronchial  infection that halted her chemo treatments temporarily. But, she's back  up to speed now and has since returned for chemo where she, too, enjoys  the books you've sent to help keep her busy. Barbara, my mother-in-law  is able to enjoy spending a short time out with a small group of her  friends. They select a different restaurant each week and enjoy the food  and good company. It's a small but welcome step. Thanks so much to each of you for your prayers, gifts, and donations. They've been very-much needed and appreciated.  And, I totally hate to constantly beat the drum, but we're still far  short in achieving the fundraising goal. I cannot begin to stress how  important these funds are to Ellen and her family. Without going into a  lot of personal detail I'll say this ... the funds have helped to keep  their heads barely above water, but they're sinking fast. Please, if you  could/would please share the link everywhere and anywhere I'd certainly  appreciate it. Every single dollar helps. Believe me, I wouldn't ask if  the situation were not so dire. Thank you!

Daughter Update:  A quick note to say Ellen experienced a super rough night last night.  She's no better this morning. Her husband had to take the night off to  be with her. And I'm on the opposite coast feeling hopeless.

Daughter Update: Ellen finished her latest round of chemo late yesterday. The process  went well with the exception of a few new issues she's still dealing  with today. Overall, though, it was a much better experience than last  time ... so far. Typically, the 3rd day after, through the 5th, have  been her worst days. Last time, however, trouble started within minutes  after leaving the hospital. So an improvement for sure.  Next up ... radiation for several weeks.
