 NAMPA, ID
Amanda Kofoed is a 30 year old wife and a mother. She is almost finished with her elementary teaching degree, is one of the kindest and most generous people in the world, and she was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

In early October 2016, Amanda found a lump under her arm. After a quick series of doctor visits, tests, scans, and a biopsy, it was confirmed that she has Classical Hodgkins Lymphoma and that she has progressed to stage 3. 

She had to drop out of school and quit her job, and will undergo 6 months of intensive chemotherapy. Clint and Amanda have 4 young kids, school loans, a future full of uncertainty, and daunting medical bills. 


Which is why we need your help.


We are trying to raise money to put a dent in the overwhelming costs of medical care, out of pocket expenses, and unforeseen emergencies that our friends are sure to deal with as the year goes forward. Our generosity can help win this battle, and our love and prayers will carry them through the dark. 

Thank you for caring, and thank you for helping! 



"My comfort in my suffering is this:
Your promise preserves my life."
Psalm 119:50

Hey, friends and family and new friends and strangers and everyone in between-

Can you believe what you're doing here?

Can you believe what your love and generosity are generating? Because that's basically what you are at this point: a back-up generator for a family who was worried when the lights began to flicker. You are the light. You are the courage. You are the hope.

Thank you for all you have given- thank you for all you are giving. This money is the answer to fervent prayers, which means YOU are the answer to our prayers. I hope you can feel that, and I hope you know how much your messages and kindness mean to Amanda and Clint as they prepare to fight for Amanda's life.

Hi, There is a medical study that is seeking 24 volunteers for Hodgkins Lymphoma. I thought this was divine providence that I would see an article about this trial related to your story. Here is the URL: http://www.omaha.com/livewellnebraska/unmc-seeks-volunteers-for-cancer-drug-study/article_b787500a-c018-11e6-87f1-27dea9ddc274.html

Hi I just saw your story on facebook. I currently work for a company in California called Kite Pharma and we deal with patient's who have Non Hodgskins Lymphoma, specifically Diffuse large B cell Lymphoma, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, or Mantle Cell Lymphoma. We use T-Cell therapy and currently in clinical trials. We have had great success with all of our patients. I encourage you to look this up as a possible option in addition to Chemo therapy, if you have any of these types. Good luck!

I had Hodgkin's Lymphoma almost 9 years ago, and I've been cancer-free ever since. You can beat this! They have made HUGE advances in this area, and Hodgkin's is very curable. I wish you much luck and I'll say a prayer for you. God be with you!

Hello! I was healed of Breast Cancer with Essiac Tea. I use Essiac Tincture because it is easier. Also Self-Heal Herb Tea heal cancers. I healed myself from Skin Cancer with drinking the tea three times a day. Powerful herbs both of them.
