Colon Cancer Sucks!
Please help the Mobley Family. Bills are piling up. There is a long road ahead, every dollar counts. And if you can't that's ok, but please pray. Thanks for your support!

Anthony Mobley, he is wonderful friend, husband, and father. Anthony and his wife Stephanie Marsh-Mobley have been together 19 years and have 2 wonderful teenage boys, Stephanie had cervical cancer at 23, uterine cancer at 25 and a surgery that almost killed her at 26, she has had 11 surgeries total. During all this time, Anthony worked two jobs and took care of Stephanie and and their 2 boys. Anthony was in a bad car accident in 2007 and broke his back in two different places and Stephanie has been working since to support the family and Anthony has taken care of the boys. They have done everything they can to survive and raise two amazing boys and have always put FAMILY FIRST...It is time for us to put him first. Anthony is an amazing father, husband and friend. They have had so many struggles and no help and now they are faced with these HUGE hurdles ahead of them. Anthony started having stomach problems some time ago, & he was always tired. He tried to figure it out on his own and thought he might be allergic to some foods or ingredients, at one point thought it was the grocery store they shopped at, then thought it was processed food. He is uninsured so he was afraid of the cost if it turned out that nothing was wrong, But eventually he was so sick he finally gave in and went to the doctor, he was told he had Ulcerative Colitis. He was scheduled for a colonoscopy on February 16th they found irregular spots, sent it to pathology, found out it was colon cancer, they scheduled the surgery for the next morning. He was told it would be a 7 - 10 day recovery and he could start chemo within a month. During the surgery they removed 99% of the cancer, he was released on February 25th, He returned to the hospital via ambulance after 3 hours at home due to very severe chest pain, & crippling pain in his side. They found that part of the blood clot in his arm had moved to his lung, he had sepsis, pneumonia, and the original incision had come apart. He was on a ventilator for about 6 days, and under heavy sedation to help his lungs heal from the pneumonia. They took him off the ventilator on Tuesday March 4th, just to have it reinserted for another 4 days. We are hoping he is now on the up swing and he is on the road to recovery so we can get him on the path to beat this horrible disease. His family and friends are putting together a few events to help raise money since he is uninsured and no one is working while he is so very sick. All proceeds from all benefits will go to help this family in their time of need.We have a Anthony Mobley House Project starting up, they have a home they purchased a few years ago, but it needs major repairs and Anthony had been working alone to repair it until he got sick. There is lots of work to be done, and material needed to get the work done. If you would like to assist with the Anthony Mobley Fund House Project in anyway you can contact Gary Hall at 478-442-0721 or on Facebook.We are also selling Support Anthony / Colon Cancer Awareness t-shirts in his honor. They are $20 each. We have people donating meals to keep them fed while they don't have time to cook. We plan to do ba few more fundraisers in the future as well. We are just a group of friends of a sick man who is in need for help for him and his wonderful family. This a family in need and they need our help. Thanks in advance! God is in control! ~Stephanie Marsh-Mobley


The Mobley Family!


This is Ant when he first entered the hospital.


Hospital life taking its toll.


He thought there was no way out.. So we had to make a 'Jailbreak' and show him there is a way! And Keep Fighting!!! We stayed out there as long as he could take it. It was a beauitful day. Special thanks to Ant's sister ~ Mary Helen!


They had to add a new tube to remove fluid from around his lung :(


Ant is an artist.








Here are a few of his paintings. See more on Facebook - (Abel Abernathy) You can order prints from there if you like - just send a private message - proceeds go to the cause.

From Anthonys Mother on Friday 4-25-14
Anthony Mobley update: Wednesday afternoon we were called to Emory University Hospital and were told that Anthony was not going to make it thru the day, He did, then we were told he would not make it thru the night, He did. He told us he wanted to go home and that was where he would die with his family and his dogs. Arrangements were made and even though Emory University Hospital wanted him to stay he said, "NO, I want to go home, Shoot for the moon." He landed very softly on the moon and he got home yesterday afternoon. His hospital bed got there only moments before he got there and I went out to the ambulance to see him and I said, "Hey baby you did it you made it home they are inside now putting your bed together, he looked at me and said, "Go help them, hurry" still in control ad still giving orders . He had time to be with his kids, his family, and his beloved dogs. He knew his time was close and he had time to spend it with the ones he loved the most and he passed from this world with Stephanie holding his hand with her head on his chest listening to his heart beat with his dogs laying at the foot of his hospital bed a little after midnight last night. As a family we are devastated at losing Anthony and also as a family we praise the lord our God who gave us time with him in the end that we would never had gotten without God leading us. We are such clueless people and without God we would continually walk thru this world blinded by so many things that we would miss without his love and guidance. Today I ask for you to continue to pray for Anthony and his family. His two young boys are going to have to face a very difficult time and Stephanie and Anthony have been together since high school. Anthony has brought together a family, a community and he has reached thousands of people who otherwise would not have known what a great God we have and how much we depend on him to get us thru not just the good days but the bad ones as well. For Thine in the Power and Glory, he leads we follow and I for one know that heaven will be painted with the most beautiful colors because heaven now has a new artist. Thank you God for this day and for the time you allowed us to have with Anthony! Amen

Today is day 46 of his hospital stay. The G tube placement for ventilation is complete. It was only the 3rd time the doctor did this procedure guided with a CT scan. The J tube for feeding is partially complete. If it does not move down further on its own, the doctor will have to guide down with endoscopy. 2 liters of fluid was also drained from around his lungs so he is breathing better now. Once the J Tube is ready, he will begin his feeding. If feeding goes well, he will go home in a few days to completely heal. Doctors say it could be 4-6 weeks of healing before he can start chemotherapy. Praying all goes well over the next few days so he can go home and see our boys and pets and have a bit of normalcy before he starts the next chapter of his road to beating colon cancer.

Please pray for Anthony this morning. Doctors put the NG tube back in his nose first thing this morning. They just took him back for the endoscopy that is supposed to tell them why he can't eat and why he is nauseated and vomiting. During the procedure they are to determine if he is to get a feeding tube through his noise or surgically placed in his abdomen. Minimum placement for both is 6 weeks with a possibility to remain throughout his chemo. Either way, he is scared and worried how it will affect his daily life. He is so ready to go home and heal and is trying to do whatever the doctors want so that can happen. I will update again once the procedure is complete. Thank you for your prayers and support.

3/31/14....Anthony had a rough time last night. Few panic attacks, chest pain, high heart rate, high blood pressure, nausea & vomiting. They did blood work, a chest xray and an EKG to make sure his heart was ok. Numbers were elevated. Because of all that, the doctors postponed his endoscopy, which means no feeding tube today. They are going to monitor him today to decide if they are going to reschedule for tomorrow. Another day to be unable to eat, going on 3 weeks now. Praying they find a way for him to be able to eat so he can heal from the surgery complications and start chemotherapy.
