The Story

The beautiful and lovely Emily Wright needs our love and support! If you know Emily, you probably know she's been tenaciously yet gracefully fighting breast cancer for several years now. Recently (Nov 6th/7th), we found out some very discouraging news. It looks like a 2cm tumor has formed around her brain stem. Because of its location it is inoperable. Emily and Jeremy's first choice in treatment care is a holistic clinic in Germany with a very high success rate. If accepted as a patient the cost will be no less than $40,000, not including travel expenses, living expenses, and unforeseen needs. If they are unable to go to Germany they will be looking into an oncologist in Marquette and will still need financial support. If you've ever had a conversation with Emily you've most likely discovered her incredible passion for natural and holistic health care. Knowing this, you might guess that her heart's desire is to get to Germany. You also might know that her passion for natural care and her hope to attend this clinic is founded in solid knowledge gained from many hours of research, and even more hours of prayer. 

About a year and a half ago my youngest son needed major surgery on his skull. My sister set up a crowdfunding page for us. It was hands down the most substantial way for people to show their support for us through that scary time. Yes, prayers are valuable and irreplaceable! No, not everyone can give large amounts of money. But I can absolutely tell you, from experience, that seeing financial support from dozens of people was one of the main things that got us through. Helping with finances shows love, relieves stress in a very stressful situation, and helps in a tangible way. You might think your $5 dollars won't go far. I'm not going to sugar coat it, it won't. But 50 people giving $5? 100 people? And you know what goes the farthest? Seeing a $5 donation from someone you know is giving all they can. I can tell you, some of those $5 donations actually meant more than the $500 ones. And if you really really don't have a penny to spare please share this and share this and share this!!

I want to take a minute to call on the church. You have an opportunity to tangibly bless a sister who has likely blessed you more than twice. This is a chance to be the hands and feet of Christ, a chance to show that we are in fact, the most giving people on earth. Prayer and faith may move mountains, but if we're not actively showing love, no one gains anything. Emily knows you are praying. Now it's time to act.

Emily and Jeremy have both poured their hearts and lives into those around them, not just friends, family, and the community, but literally everyone around them. Let's multiply that love and support and send the blessing back to them. Let's overwhelm them with a flood of finances so they aren't just taken care of, but overcome with how much they are loved and appreciated.

Emily is doing awesome. She's still feeling a little weak from surgery, but she's off all meds including the steroid! They are currently in Colorado for a national christian camp conference. 

Their flights to Germany are booked! The clinic package is covered! Let me repeat; they have received enough funds to cover the cost of the base treatment at the clinic! So amazing! That being said, they still need a little more for some yet unknown add-on treatments/tests at the clinic as well as other expenses. 

Emily says, "God is ridiculously good and we are amazed at His faithfulness and kindness. Thank you to everyone who has contributed and loved on us and encouraged us!"
There is a benefit dinner and send-off party planned for December 29th at 6pm, at Water's Edge Church in Marquette, MI. Check out the Facebook event page and please RSVP if you are able to attend. Link below.

Hey Everyone,

I apologize for missing a couple days. I have sick kids at home and it makes everything 6 steps harder, so this will be a quick update just to let you know....

Emily is doing really well! She was able to attend church on Sunday, and she is now off all meds except the steroid! Some of the meds caused some undesirable side effects so she's very happy to be done with them. 

Her and Jeremy plan on going to a work (camp) related conference next week. They plan on flying out on Sunday and coming back on Friday. All expenses are paid by the camp, and the Doctor has cleared Emily for travel! So far things look great, but continue to pray for full recovery, and no pain so they can enjoy their time there without concern.

Emily mentioned how incredible the staff at the hospital was. She said they were amazing and truly gave her the care she needed. Also, she's humbled and thankful for all the cards, finances, and meals that have poured in over the last couple weeks. We live in a truly awesome community!
