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.

I have decided I am tired of this sickness getting the best of me.  I am  tired of being to tired to get anything done. I am starting projects  that were meant to be done months ago.  Cancer is not going to dictate  what I can do. From this day forward cancer will live with me, I will  not live with cancer.

Ellen wrote: I  had the best group of nurses and Doctor I could have asked for.  They  were all so happy for me this morning.  I also hugged them all, some of  them twice. I will not miss the radiation treatments but I will miss all  of them.  I will miss their encouraging words, the laughter we shared,  and all of their hard work in helping to save my life.

Daughter  update - This morning Ellen received a nice certificate and then "rang  the bell" to celebrate completing her 28th and final round of radiation.  Next up, a break and then back to chemo. Thank you all for your  continued support, prayers, thoughts, well-wishes, and financial  contributions. All are appreciated and very much needed.
