Steve Kellogg needs our help!  As many of you know, Steve and Crystal have gone to Puebla, Mexico so he can receive cancer treatments.  These internal and external protocols are unavailable in the U.S.  Originally they planned to be there for 3 weeks, but after the doctors examined him and ran numerous tests this week, they find he needs surgery on a herniated disc in his neck. In addition to surgery, Steve is scheduled to have stem cell therapy. There are no guarantees that the treatments will eradicate the cancer but based on many testimonials he is optomistic with this treatment plan. The new treatment plan requires him to extend the stay  in Mexico by 3 weeks.

As you can imagine, these extensive treatments and the extended stay comes at a cost they had not counted on. Steve needs our help to cover the unexpected expenses they are facing.

Please will you join Steve's "Kick Cancer" team and make a donation? All funds donated will go directly to Steve and Crystal and I know any gift you make will give their spirits a much needed boost.

Thank you for donating and for caring!

Friends of Steve Kellogg,
I wanted to contact you to let you know of a financial need. Since Steve passed away last Monday, Christal is left with the burden of significant hospital and doctor bills.

Christal has been by Steve's side every step of his journey and has been his strongest supporter exhibiting a strong faith, a loving grace-filled spirit. It would be wonderful if we could show her our appreciation and love by donating to ease this financial burden. Any amount will help.

Blessings,
Judi Smalling

A quick update to Steve's friends.
Steve is now back home after completing all the treatments he needed in Mexico. Since my last update he's had the following procedures:

*He had the stem cell treatment and felt improvement soon after.

*Christal flew back to the States about 2 weeks ago.

* Neck surgery on his C6 disk to shrink the bulging disk and give him some relief from pain. It will take about 6 weeks for him to have full benefit from this.

*This week Steve's dad passed away. It was difficult for Steve to be away from his mom and dad and family during this time, but he stayed in communication by phone as much as he could.

*Steve is now back in Washington. They are busy planning his dad's memorial service to be held on Tuesday, May 3 at WFMC at 3 p.m. A private interment service will be held after the service.

So many have given generously and both Steve and Christal are extremely grateful for the help received. If you haven't been able to donate yet, please consider making a donation now.

Thank you,
Judi

Friends of Steve,
I wanted to update you on Steve's treatment in Mexico. He tells me that the treatments are helping with his pain. On Wednesday he will get the stem cells via IV. Crystal plans to fly back to Washington and Steve will follow about 2 weeks later.

Steve is so appreciative of all the generous donations! He can't say thank you to each of you now, but he will in due time. They have very poor internet availablity where he is staying which makes communication very difficult.

I need to share a change in the plan for withdrawals. Due to the poor internet Steve has asked for me to withdraw funds and send him a check. I really would prefer to not handle it this way, but under these unusual circumstances I need to honor Steve's request. The most important thing is to get the money to him so they can cover expenses there.

Please continue to pray for Steve, especially on Wednesday when he has the very important stem cell treatment. You guys are all just awesome and no doubt this support is a huge boost to Steve's spirits!!

Thanks for caring and giving from the heart!
