THE CELLAR

           THE CELLAR EVENT

What a great fundraiser!
 What kind, giving women. They put tons of time and money into a awesome night!
Joan is on the left. She's a brain tumor survivor of 20 years +
To hear her story gave me lots of HOPE and courage. She raised 2 boys while undergoing surgery and treatment.  The way she found me and offered to help is how I know my Father in Heaven hears me and answers my families prayers. 
 Brittani on my right helped to pull this huge event together too. She is  dating Joans sweet son. I met her son, what a cool guy. I hope my boys are like this loving guy someday. He was right beside these girls helping them with everything, so compassionate! Joan really raised him right.  Brittani's a lucky girl and he is one lucky guy. They are both  beautifully spirited inside and out. 
This was the entrance as you walked into this  cosy place.
The candles were low lit with lots of texture. Look how cute the decorations were.


                                               This was just a small snap shot of the raffle that local business donated. 
              What a giving community! It took us over a hour to draw every one's name that won that night!
It had to of been the most fun I've had in a long, long time. 
Thank you to all who came and supported my family and I. And to all of you that donated to make the night such a huge succsess. Joan called me and told me we met our goal of raising over $3000.00!

March update

It's been 3 months since I've started treatment at the Burzynski Clinic. I've been on the antineoplastins for 3 months now. Other than my family says I'm short tempered, snappy and tired I can't complain. The treatment is going well. I just had my blood drawn, tumor markers checked and a MRI last week. I go in for results Thursday, I feel great. I can do my normal daily routine while being on treatment. No down time, which is such a blessing having 4 children.
I will give the rest of  update after my oncology visit on Thursday.

I tell my family that I'm so sorry that I'm snappy, tired and short tempered. It's because I can see how short life is now, my eyes have been opened.  I can see everything I need to teach them before I go. Everything I want to become and learn before I leave this beautiful earth. For the last 7 months I haven't sat down to relax for more than 10 mins. Then, yesterday I was playing with my baby Lilee on the floor with the other children close by. There was a moment that was quite, I looked at my husband and he looked at me and my heart was filled with overwhelming love that my Father in Heaven has for me. I am so blessed. I have so much. I have been given it all... A loving family that is mine forever.

Update

Here's the latest update on my treatment.
I Just got home about a week ago from Texas.  I was able to start on Dr.  Burzynski treatment. Because of so many giving, selfless, charitable people, we raised $50,000.00! Which allowed me to start his antineoplastin treatment. Antineoplastins are Dr. Burzynskis form of chemo therapy. Because of much prayer, faith and fasting there is very little of the tumor that still remains. What still remains is believed to be stopped with Dr. B's antineoplastin drug.  I'm on it and I feel great. I feel like I'm back to my old self. I will continue on the drug for 8 months. I figure if I have a few more fundraisers we will have reached the goal we set for the total treatment. This is costing our family $5000.00 a month. Any money left over, if any, I will donate to another cancer patient to help with treatment. So please continue to spread the word.
 I truly feel like I'm getting a second chance at life.
A second chance, could you imagine being told you only have a few years left to live by an oncologist. Then; meeting with Dr. B and being told he can take care of this tumor. He's helped 100's of patients with this same type of cancer and they are 20 years+. They are going STRONG! I believe him. I've seen their pictures and heard their stories. I met with many of them at the cancer center.
I honestly feel like I have been given a second chance.
Basically; the only alternative was to do radiation on my brain. Which because of the tumors location would lead to blindness in my right eye, I would become slow and could possibly lose my ability to walk....When it's in your brain you cannot take risks like this.
Thank you to all those who have supported our family, we owe everything to you.

Because I have been given much I too must give.

Friends

I just wanted to take some time today to say how thankful I am to all those who have helped my family to get this far. I am so blessed to have so many people in my life that sincerely care. I'm here in Texas because of you.

If there is one thing I can say I've learned well in this life, it was how to be a friend. "If you want a friend, you have to be a friend." I try to teach Emilee my daughter. I must have been a pretty good friend because I have the greatest people in the world standing behind me, I tell her. I know that because of the love and support that you all have shown me, I can beat this! I will beat this, I have too.
I have to come back strong to be that friend you have been to me. I will love and serve you in every way I physically can.

Your comments on face book, your texts, your letters, emails, phone calls and comments on my website strengthen me, they give me hope and courage. I feel your love when I read them.
Thank you

My journey begins today

Today is the beginning of a long journey. I started treatment at the Burzynski clinic. I have faith that he can heal my stage 2 brain cancer. I want everyone to follow me on this experience. If you have cancer or know anyone with cancer, follow me. We will travel along this controversial road together. My oncologist and others in the medical field told me nothing is proven with Burzynski. As well as; not to go. Maybe they are right, maybe they're wrong. Maybe they are prideful and jealous or maybe... I know nothing at all.
Today is the first day we will learn if people in the medical field are right. Or if what my heart tells me is right.

Here we go... Let's see?
