Caring for the Chins

on behalf of Carol Chin
 SEATTLE, WA
For years, Peter and Carol have courageously shared their family’s journey during Carol’s fight against triple negative breast cancer. Many of us have been blessed by their tenacious faith in very difficult circumstances.

Carol’s cancer had been in remission for nearly six years, but in early April, a CT/PET scan revealed that her cancer had recurred, this time in a single lymph node in her chest. Carol will begin an intense round of proton radiation therapy in mid-June. In July, her team of doctors will decide what the next stage of treatment will entail.

Carol's family and friends have organized this fundraiser to help support the Chin family during this difficult season. Donations will go directly to the Chins to cover their out-of-pocket medical insurance expenses, including an experimental testing procedure that insurance will not cover. Funds will also allow Peter to take additional time off from work to take care of Carol and their five children.

Please consider how you can support the Chin family as they fight cancer yet again.

Amazing! Thank you for generously and tangibly showing your love for the Chin family in this season.

As of today, we have hit our initial goal of $20,000. If you still feel led to give, please do! We know that in addition to out-of-pocket medical expenses, their life will be very expensive during Carol's treatment, and we want to give them all the flexibility possible.

Every donation will go directly to the Chins to cover their costs in this difficult season.

Thank you for loving the Chins!

A message of gratitude and celebration from Peter and Carol:

Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to the fundraiser, we've been able to raise over $17K in one week - thank you!

When the fundraiser started, we were hopeful that we could raise enough money to help us cover the costs of the chemosensitivity testing, as well as our health insurance deductible. But we knew all along there was no way we could raise enough to cover proton therapy. Proton therapy costs $5000 per session, and with 15 sessions altogether, we knew we needed some other form of provision to cover those costs.

But in Matthew 6:8, it says that God knows what we need even before we ask him. And we found out that is totally true because without us even asking them, the proton center has agreed to cover ALL the costs of Carol's proton treatments. Yup. All of them.

Without us even asking. Exactly like Matthew 6:8.

We're truly overwhelmed with thanksgiving, to all of you, to the proton center for their generosity, and to God for his generous and faithful provision! God is good, even in the valley.

Thanks for your story -- it has been very encouraging during my own battle with breast cancer. May God continue to meet all of your needs according to His riches in glory.
