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  friends! I forgot to post after my last PET scan. The scan looked very good. The doctor's office actually called me to tell me the good news! I don't understand all that the numbers mean, but all of the numbers were considerably down. Two of them are down in the normal range. I had small (and large) tumors all over my lungs, spine and hip, but apparently things are finally improving. My tumor markers in my blood have also come down now for 3 consecutive blood draws. We are very encouraged. This has been a strain on all of us, but we seem to be nearing some sort of an end. The Lord has been assuring me that I will be heaIed so I am trying to be patient, but my symptoms have been rather bad for about a month and I am ready to move past this. Thanks to everyone for all of the prayer and financial support!!! You all are awesome!

Dear friends:

It’s been a year since Sonya’s stage 4 cancer diagnosis, and we have been overwhelmed with thanksgiving for:
1) Her great prognosis and progress
2) your amazing prayer and support

I know with all my heart that the two are related.

Many of the reports on Sonya’s tumor markers and reports show  very good news; she has enjoyed working mornings this year at a local Catholic school where she is greatly used of God, and the students love her. This allows her to receive her treatments in the afternoon.  She  is so brave, and such an inspiration to me and our children.  I have been married to a saint for 31 years, and I have never loved her more.

The challenge is that the necessary treatments are very expensive (you can read all about that on previous posts here).  So many have been so generous, and we could not have done it without you.

We are in need again, as some of our generous gifts have been depleted.   This has been such a journey of faith, and it's humbling to ask for help. 

So if you could simply pray, and if you are called to support us in finances, it’s easy to do on this page.

Blessings!
