THE STORY:

To our beloved famly and friends, After having been diagnosed back in April with several critical medical issues including pneumonia, failed gall bladder, sever heart issues, and redundant stages in the ICU - it is good to finally be able to bring you a report on perhaps the most severe of them all: cancer. On Wednesday (6/3/15) I was able to have the PET scan done and today the results of that test were given to my wife Candy and me. My cancer doctor explained that the PET scan showed a cancerous mass on the left side of my chest extending from an area behind the top of the left shoulder blade, down through the upper center chest cavity and from there it has moved toward my left lung overtaking the tubes and veins and other tissues etc. in my left lung. The cancer is Stage 3, type B. It appears that the schedule from this point is for me to have a port inserted into my chest that will be used for future chemo therapy and radiation therapy treatments. This port should be surgically implanted and the first treatment should begin in about a week and a half. The one thing that I want all of you to understand is this - these are simply human medical terms and conditions. Our God reins over all things human including medical conditions. He lets nothing come to us that he does not first allow to come through him. The sovereign God and creator of the universe in his divine wisdom has seen something he wants to accomplish in my life through this cancer. My ministry, Cross Camp Cowboy Church, is alive with the fullness of Jesus Christ. His Spirit prevails in every service in every prayer and every song, and every testimony, in every activity. I, along with Candy, look forward with great vigor to returning to our place of service just as soon as God allows. We thank you for your continued prayers and support. We know we can count on you. I love you! Always have, always will! -- Travis Brasell

As organizer for this fundraising effort and eldest son, I know full and well the financial difficulties we all now face as a family. There was not a cancer policy in place and dad is dependent on the viva medicare. Copays and the procedures he needs are immeasurable at best. There have been so many people already help in so many ways - if you can give, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

As my sister says - No matter what, I know that these words of Paul from Acts would accurately portray my dad's heart's desire as well: "But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God." (Acts 20:24 ESV) If you can help us help him finish - to get him back on that horse per say, we are eternally grateful.
