The Story

(NOTE : see updates below )Sonya Wainscott--wife to Dave, and mother to Tim and Sara--was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer, which has spread significantly to lungs and bones.

Standard chemotherapy in cases like hers allows the patient to live an average of 19 months. But the Wainscotts are fortunate to live in the very city in which a highly-respected integrative cancer doctor maintains a clinic. Dr. M.A. Nezami , with background as surgeon and oncologist, has found great success with targeted and epigenetic therapies that combine traditional and integrative approaches.

Renowned cancer clinics such as M.D. Anderson have sent patients to Dr. Nezami.    Nezami  draws from much experience when he says he is very optimistic about Sonya’s survival far beyond projections.  With Dr. Nezami as head of Sonya’s healing team, the family is convinced this is the  best option.  This also means that insurance helps with some costs, but not most.  Thus therapy is very expensive, averaging over $1,000 dollars a day.   Prescriptions are very targeted, and are also very expensive. The Wainscotts have already borrowed large amounts of money from their families.  They now humbly reach out to ask for your prayers and financial assistance.

Sonya will be blogging her journey at this link.

Thank you!

Hello everyone. This is Sonya, and I'm sorry it's been so long since I posted my own update.
It has been quite a ride, and I am so very thankful for all your prayers and support.   I have been very sick, and it has been very stressful.

I have a hard time walking by myself, as the cancer has spread to the brain, and has radically affected left arm and leg use, as well as my vision.   The doctor will not allow me to return to teaching.  It is humbling to be dependent on family.  We will be deciding among options for in-home care; please pray with us.

Honestly, if someone wants to volunteer to sit with me for a few hours--or bring meals-- that would help a lot, as my family's schedules all  involve work, and I can't be left alone due to the risk of falling.  This has been extremely stressful on my family.

Of course the medical prognosis is weeks or months to live, but I truly believe it will be much longer than that.  The Lord reminds me that I have many things to do, and places to go.

Of course the financial support has been a huge blessing, and any help is appreciated.   I haven’t been able to work for eight weeks.   We are looking at major car repair, bills, and other expenses.  I know God provides, and  sometimes that includes using you. (:

Blessings to all of you.

We are so very thankful for you all, and your prayers.
Sonya's cancer has spread to the brain, and has affected her walking ability.
A few weeks ago she couldn't walk without a walker, but now she is able to walk well, with a limp  (Genesis 32).
She is so amazing, and is planning to be around a long time.
We are looking at treatment options, but some are too severe, and not worth the risks. 
Pray for healing, discernment, financial resources. 
Bless you all..
