Cancer Dont Give Me No Lip
Organized by: Jake & Kate Neal
We have watched a loved one have her life turned upside down at the age of only 42 and not once ask for help. It's time we give it to her.
In the last 16 months Kimberly Meddings Brenner (a.k.a. Kimmy Sue) has gone through surgery, radiation, Chemo and 4 different treatments after being diagnosed with Nodular Melanoma. This is the most aggressive form of Melanoma and is known for it's rapid spread throughout the body.
So far nothing has worked. She has been determined and strong. If it weren't for steroids, she would have no energy. It has spread throughout her body and she once again finds herself in the hospital for another round of Chemo. This has taken an extreme toll on Kim's body, but it hasn't touched her heart.
She is a mom, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, niece and a great friend to many. Some of us have experienced family, friends or loved ones that have gone through battles with cancer in the past, while others have had the luxury of not having to fully comprehend the way this disease can affect someone's life. Even the "happy endings" result in financial burden and more additional stress than just cancer alone. Consider doctor bills, medicine for the rest of ones life, college funds depleted, savings invested in experimental drugs etc..
Make this your good deed for the day. Why not make this the first story you read and consider donating just $5 or maybe $5000 (worth a shot) and instead of looking at it as another tragic story you hear about on the news every day, you could actually be making a difference in someone's lives that really needs it. Whether it be a donation directly to the family, or a contribution to cancer research, anything is appreciated.
Kim and her husband Jamie have not asked for this but as time goes on, we feel like they will appreciate the love and support that will be shown throughout this process. Please continue to pray for Kim, Jamie, their daughters Annabelle and Madison, as well as any other cancer patients who need blessed by God's hand throughout a difficult time.
