Sam and Sarah are leaving on the 25th and checking into the treatment center on the 28th. They'll be driving, and taking care to break up the trip into manageable days. Sarah is really, really excited, and has been incredibly encouraged by this new flood of support coming from so many people.

This trip wouldn't be happening without each and every one of you giving so generously and faithfully spreading her story to your friends and family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Sarah has been gaining weight and strength since her last update on this page. The fact that this is happening is such a good sign. She has a physical therapist coming into the home twice a week to work with her, and her body is responding so well(this will continue once she comes home from Mexico).

We're so close to meeting the new goal of 70,000; I think we might even make it before they arrive in Mexico. Please continue to pray for Sarah, for Sam, for safe travels, and remember Drake(7) and Lylah(4) in your prayers too, as they will be apart from their mom and dad for many weeks.

I'll be posting at least one update a week while they are in Mexico so you'll all know how the treatment is going. I know so many of you are anticipating this next step in her journey, and we'll definitely keep you informed. Thank you for all you've done and all you'll continue to do; it's a beautiful thing to witness.

Hello everyone,
I want to thank you for all the donations which have come in since Sarah's update a few days ago. Please continue to spread the word, even beyond Facebook, if you're able to do so.

Sarah and Sam's 11th wedding anniversary was last weekend, and, with their permission, I wanted to share something Sam wrote on their personal Facebook wall.
***

I love this woman more than any other soul on this planet. Tomorrow marks 11 years since our wedding night where I pledged to love honor and care for her through sickness and health. At the time we were young and healthy, and something like a diagnosis of advanced cancer at age 30 was far off our radar. It breaks my heart daily to see her in this weakened state and I feel it is vital that Sarah gets to a place soon where she can receive the type of specialized care that can push back against the cancer and give her a fighting chance.

Along with working my ass off, I will beg, borrow and sell everything I have (pianos,drums,tools,car) to see her get this treatment.

We have been so blessed by all the support we have received over the past 9 months, it has sustained us and allowed us to pursue so much care that we wouldn't have been able to otherwise afford, and for that I am so grateful. It is still my desire to grow old with her, and I believe all things are possible.
I am forever grateful ~Sam

Today's update comes to you from Sarah. As you can see, I have increased the goal to 70,000.00. She'll be explaining more details below.

Hello everyone,
I just want to take a quick moment to thank all of you for your generous donations, gifts, prayers and support that you’ve given to us throughout the past months.

Since receiving my blood test results a few weeks ago, I’ve been researching facilities in the U.S. as well as Mexico that are vital for treatment and recovery. We’ve decided upon Sanoviv Medical Institute in Rosarita, Mexico.

The reason we chose this hospital is because it is the only treatment facility which combines all of the natural therapies and methods we have been working so hard on with targeted chemotherapy and immunotherapy. This is a treatment method which allows chemotherapy to target only the cancerous cells in my body, leaving the non-cancerous tissues free from harm, and working in conjunction with the all-natural diet programs I’ve been doing.

In order to start this unique program, it’s necessary that we get down there as soon as possible to begin treatment. We are doing everything possible right now to get the necessary funds together in order to expedite our departure, and to finally be able to check-in to the facility. Ideally, we would like to be down there in two weeks’ time.

Our goal is to raise between $30k-$40k. We deeply appreciate all that has been given to us so far, and don’t want this to be a financial strain on anyone to give, but if 1,000 people gave $30-$40 each, we would easily meet our goal amount, so please feel free to spread the word as fast as you can.

Once again, we cannot express how truly grateful we are for the love and support that you all have offered to us, and thank you so very much for continuing in this endeavor as we work towards Mexico!

~Sarah Evans

My best friend, Sarah Evans, is one of the most incredible women I know. Two weeks ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer and as of yesterday, she was informed that it has spread to other places in her body. The cancer diagnosis means many changes for Sarah and her family and they need our support.

The goal is to raise money to ease the financial burden on Sarah and her husband as they choose the best route of care possible for her. This is a time of severe stress and upheaval in the life of their family; let's offer what financial support we are able to give as a way to love and rally around them.
