Meredith and I are starting this campaign to help our dear friends Roberta and Reggie Miller. Roberta was diagnosed with stage four cancer in August 2009, nearly 8 years ago. She was given two years to live and defied the odds. Roberta is still fighting, one tough cookie, and she is not going to let the big C take her away from her husband and her children, nor will she be deprived of watching her children grow into young adults. To help you understand this campaign we would like to recap what the family has gone through in the last eight years. Since her diagnosis, Roberta has undergone 6 surgeries, each with their own very lengthy stays in the hospital in Denver. She was life-flighted once back to Denver after complications following one of those surgeries. They also have to travel to Denver every three months and stay anywhere from four days to two weeks for continued testing and re-evaluation. Roberta has also been on chemo for the last eight years. Needless to say medical insurance doesn't begin to cover the cost incurred when fighting cancer. Not only do they have their yearly deductibles to meet, there are so many new medicines and treatments that are not covered by insurance that the medical bills they incur are astronomical. Right now they are paying out of pocket nearly $1500 a month for the chemo that she is taking.Roberta had to resign from her teaching position two years after she was diagnosed. It is tough going to make ends meet each month with all these medical expenses, not to mention they are raising two children, one is in high school and one is in college. They have made it their mission not to let this disease interfere with the desires and goals of their children. We all know how expensive it is just to run a household, especially with teenagers, on a single income. We had to talk up a "BlueStreak", more than one time, to get Roberta and Reggie to agree to letting us start this Go Fund Me page. We were only successful when we stressed to them how much everybody loves them, wants to help them, and also wants to be ministers for Christ. "When I was thirsty, you gave me to drink! When I was sick, you came to my aid! ". Thank you so very much for supporting Roberta and Reggie and their kids in this fund and may God bless you all.

Here is an update, directly from Roberts's Caring Bridge page, and as you can see, they are going to continue to need our support, financially and thru prayers.
Journal entry by Roberta Miller — 13 minutes ago

Surgery took place last week to remove and complete a full biopsy on 1 of 4 suspicious lymph nodes. Results came through yesterday, not as positive as we had hoped for. Negative for lymphoma, negative for infection, but positive for abnormal cells -CANCER. My lymph node is off to the Mayo clinic now for further testing to decide if the colon cancer has metastasized to this new area or if we are dealing with a secondary cancer diagnosis. It was a pretty tearful day yesterday getting the news, Reggie always knows how to comfort me and help me see past the bad, and into the good. I don't know what I would do along this journey without him. He is my rock, my bestfriend and my biggest love, I thank god for him every single day. As I've mentioned to some close friends yesterday, the tears will ease up and go away and then I'll be in stealth mode, ready to do what I need to do. A big thank you to my family and friends who continue to surround us with your love and support, your phone calls and text mean the world to us. Thanks to the many who have helped by donating to the gofundme or mailed a donation directly to us. Without your help, this would be a much more difficult journey to walk thru. Our words can never express our thanks enough to all of you. So what's next, right? Now we wait for Mayo results, resume chemo, then map out a new plan to get rid of the cancer in this new area. Be it surgery, radiation, or a different chemo, I'm ready to embrace it and get the fight going.


If you would still like to donate, you have 3 options to choose from.

1. Directly through gofundme.

2. Any wells Fargo, just ask for Roberta Miller Cancer fund account

3. Mailed to 1020 Westwood Drive, Riverton, 82501

*prayers are just as appreciated and as useful as any monetary donation*

Update will follow after we have heard from my oncologist on the mayo clinic biopsy.


With all my love,

Roberta
