Update on Debbie's Progress
April 07, 2016
When you pass through the waters . . .
On November 14, 2015, our dear friend and member of our Grace Chapel church Life Group, Debbie Miller, received the first in a series of bad medical reports. She had been having pain in her leg and that day received the results of a biopsy – metastatic breast cancer in the bone. Her breast cancer which had been in remission for years, had now metastasized to her femur bone in her left leg. The following week a lesion was found on her spine . . . and then in 2 places in her neck . . . and also in her brain.
"When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you." (Is 43:2)
To say this has been shocking and overwhelming to Debbie and all who know her and love her is an understatement. BUT GOD . . .
"For I will be to her a wall of fire round about, says the LORD, and I will be the glory within her." (Zech. 2:5)
"God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early." (Ps. 46:5)
We in her Life Group have been praying and believing for complete healing in Jesus' name on her behalf. We are speaking "healing" over her even as our human eyes cannot see it yet. We are speaking those things which are not as if they ARE and by faith, asking for a miracle. From the very beginning Debbie has cried out to the Lord for wisdom and discernment in knowing how to proceed forward with every means of treatment that He may want to use to heal her body. She is one who believes in the power of healing through what we put in our bodies, which would include juicing, raw foods, and supplements and has a harder time with the more conventional means of treating disease but has been willing to incorporate both in her path to healing. She has been very blessed to have a team of people around her including several Naturopathic doctors who have put together a nutritional plan while working in conjunction with the conventional doctors in doing targeted radiation on her chest, brain and leg and surgery on her leg.
The challenge in all this is that the natural path, which Debbie very much prefers, is not covered by any kind of insurance and is very expensive. Debbie has had the unique opportunity to connect with a Christian Naturopathic doctor who has been willing to view her tests and give advice on what he thinks she should do but incorporating everything that he recommends to aggressively go after this, would cost approximately $1000 per month. We want Debbie to have the opportunity to pursue this and can’t stand the thought of money standing in the way of the best natural God-given methods of healing available to her.
Please help us raise money for our precious friend as she embarks on her journey to healing. Debbie is a single mom of 2 grown children, Christin and Adam, and an amazing lady with strong faith and love for the Lord. Her desire through all of this is that the Lord would be honored and glorified through the whole process. Just this week she told me about her upcoming surgery on her leg on Christmas Eve and was excited, hoping she’ll have the opportunity to talk with her Jewish surgeon about the celebration of Jesus’ birth that day!
Please join us in praying for a miracle for Debbie and helping her through to victory and healing on the other side of this trial. Nothing is impossible with our God!!
"Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD. Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes." (Ps 112:6-7)
