on behalf of Stephen Mills
 ORANGE, CA
In June, Stephen began having stomach pain and loosing weight at a fast rate. Hoping that the ER would quickly diagnosis appendicitis or something easy, every test kept coming back with no answers. Over the last week the Mills family has received the devastating news that a 10cm mass has been found in his stomach. An operation to remove the tumor was unsuccessful on Friday and the family is awaiting biopsy results to reveal if the cancer is treatable & what type of cancer it is.

Stephen's wife, Amanda, is 8 months pregnant and a stay at home mom to their 2 year old son Arlo. She has selflessly dropped everything to take care for her husband. 

This gofundme is to help support The Mills family while Stephen fights the fight of his life and his family takes the financial burden of Stephen being off work, all while welcoming a newborn baby into their lives in the next month.

Please give anything you can, even $1 helps! And if you can't give.... Pray, send love & envision Stephen healing from this cancer that has abruptly taken over their lives.

As the dust settles from the events over the last couple weeks, we have started reflected on last Friday and Stephen's celebration of life.

The family would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love that has been received. His service, although what none of us ever wanted to attend because it meant that our sweet Stephen was gone, was perfect and exactly what he would have wanted.

The guests that filled the church and the reception that followed...prayed over Stephen's family, surrounding them with love, friendship, tears, laughter, memories, music, good food and drinks and gorgeous flowers.

Amanda and the boys haven't gone a day without fresh meals dropped at their doorstep. They have been surrounded by people checking in and making sure their needs are met. Please check the meal schedule, as there are several days coming up that aren't filled.

We need to remember to keep this sweet family in our hearts in the coming days, months and years. As we vowed to Amanda and the boys that day in the church, we all stood circling around them, holding hands..

From this day forward,
As time passes and our lives carry on,
We will not forget down the road from now,
With the uncertainty of life that is always changing,
That Stephen’s living legacies will be experiencing their lives and milestones
Without their father and husband by their sides.
We will always remember to circle around his family and support them the way he would desire us to:
Sharing meals together, or simply providing a meal
Running errands together or for you,
Financially support you,
Invitations for BBQ’s, play dates, walks, coffees, wine, Nights on the town,
And cheering the kids on at the dirt bike track, soccer field, performances, graduations…

Amanda, you will not need to ask for help on your own – We will be your advocates.
We celebrate the rock you have been for Stephen and are honored to continue living life with you forevermore

Details on helping to build a #millsstronghouse will be in the next update. Escrow closes in the next week and Amanda will be updating their home to a safe and strong environment to raise her and Stephens kids in... but we need your help. We need community to help her with this!

Thank you to everyone for your support!

A Celebration of Life for Stephen Mills

We will all celebrate the life of Stephen Mills at
GraceFellowshipChurch.org
3170 Red Hill Ave, Costa Mesa, California 92626

on Friday April 21, 2017 from 10:30-12:30

Immediately following Stephen's service there will be a Celebration of Life reception @ Renewable Farms from 1-5 with food, libations and live music. We will dance, laugh and love like Stephen would want us too.

Renewable Farms is located at 1426 E Vermont Ave. Anaheim, CA. 92805

The farm is tucked away down a long alley off a residential street, so finding it for the first time can sometimes be a little tricky. From State College Blvd, head West on E. Vermont Ave. Pass a large Park then an Elementary School on your left hand side, once you see the address 1428, make a left down the alley. Follow the Redwood fence, make your fist left, and you've arrived!

Our sweet Stephen is gone. He left his frail sick earthly body this morning. His body was beautifully resurrected on this Easter Morning. He was surrounded by his family and friends. We are so grateful he is not in pain anymore and are in complete awe of his strength. Please pray for his family and friends and their suffering hearts.

Here is a link for the meal train to feed their souls in the coming weeks.

Please continue to send photos for his memorial to linzmeehleis@hotmail.com

#teammills update: this beautifully stubborn man won't give up his fight. His beating heart, gasping lungs and ability to LOVE are the only things left working in his body. Please continue to pray for a peaceful transition and for their family. Amanda is requesting any pictures of Stephen to be emailed to me for the memorial montage. Please email them to linzmeehleis@hotmail.com
Thank you. #millsstrong #teammills

That protocol works for a lot of people! Cancer feeds off sugar and baking soda is an alkaline which the tumor cannot survive in. It has to have an acidic environment. The tumor feeds off the sugar and the baking soda kills the cancer cells. Anything is always worth a try!!! Praying for you family.

It is never easy losing a loved one, but it makes the hurt a little less knowing they are no longer suffering. Know that he will always be around you and the kids for internal life. God bless you and give you strength through this tough time.
