Next Big Project !!!

Since Jennifer’s diagnosis, she has become very passionate about raising awareness for cancer’s that don’t get as much attention as breast cancer. All women know about breast cancer self exams and the importance of mammograms but not everyone knows the warning signs of melanoma or brain cancer.

As the days and weeks have gone on, Jennifer and I have had time to think about what we could do, how her story, her struggle, and the lessons our family is learning could be used in a way to help others. We are currently working on starting an awareness group that focuses on all forms of cancer, and the metastatic dangers.

A diagnosis of cancer is a life changing experience for anyone. When a cancer patient is told their cancer has metastasized, the news is devastating. The flood of emotions and fear become overwhelming for the patient and their loved ones. We have learned this first hand. Jennifer and I are dedicated to building an awareness groups that 1. focuses on giving hope to cancer patients who are fighting the battle of metastasized cancer 2. education the general public about the warning signs of all cancers, and 3. offering the tools, information, and resource our family has collected during our journey in battling cancer. We are hoping to be able to specific reach out to cancer patients with limited financial means. The struggle to beat cancer is hard enough, when money is also a problem the fear and hopelessness only grows.

This project is in its early stages and there is more information to come!

First Day of School

Jennifer got out of the hospital today and has moved into my dad’s house with me! We have had so much help with getting the girls ready for school tomorrow, if it wasn’t for Jessica Poppell and Brittany Sorrick we couldn’t have gotten everything done! After all this, all Natalie wanted was her hair french braided for her first day. Of course I have no french braiding skills so Brittany worked it out and she looks super cute!

Jennifer has been praying so hard she could be out of the hospital in time to see her kids off to school on the first day! Well, God worked that out for her and she will be able to see them off to school! Jennifer and Natalie both have been so strong and so wonderful through all this, I am so thankful the simple little things they both wanted worked out.

We have a long road but the support from this page, the support and prayer on facebook and all of our friends and family are making this struggle a little easier on all of us!
