HELP US BEAT CANCER,, Both Nancy and Steve were diagnosed with Cancer in 2014 , 

Previously I had reported that Steves Cancer is under control we hope it stays that way,, God has given us such blessings and we so appreciate all the help provided thus far by all.
Steve does still need blood tests and CT scans every few months , There is still a need there

Nancy>  In December 2014,,
Nancy  was hospitalized and was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast cancer. Currently, she is  under the care of 2 oncologist and a top  homeopathic Doctorin Maryland,
She is  doing hormonal treatments, via shot every month, and she have numerous supplements and also using the Mistletoe Treatments as Steve did,
(see study at John Hopkins info at www.BelieveBig.org  )

Nancy's Doctors keep telling her  whatever she is  doing to keep doing it , due to the positive results she is  having!!

We are optimistic on the treatments and the outcome, Being that they  are limited financially especially with the natural treatments that do not qualify for perscription discounts,  
Any help appreciated ,
May you all be Blessed,, thanks,, 

STEVE> Sept. 2014 > Steve went in for what was thought to be an emergency appendectomy,  He had No fever, No other symptoms.
His White blood cell count was through the roof. 


What the surgeon found was a hard mass of the appendix, connected underneath, and attached to his colon. They cut it out and sent it to pathology,  
He spent almost a week in the hospital on intravenous antibiotics.

When the results of the path. lab  came back,  Oct 8th, 
it was found to be colon cancer.  
We are hoping this was caught early enough.

We need help for upcoming treatment, medicines, and expenses, that this is creating, and the family is not prepared for.  
We have no insurance, so we are kinda up the creek ,,
we did find out, however, that if we pay for testing, treatments, etc., at the time of procedures, there will be a Large discount. 

Steve has rasied 7 children, and helped  some raise their children,  
Along his path of life he has helped anyone that needed him, unconditionaly. 
Now  regretfully we need to ask for help,

Being a farmer and dog breeder, who just turned 60yrs old, the options are limited. 

Any help you can provide big or small will take one less worry from the families shoulders.  All moneys collected will go towards medical treatments, testing, medicines,  and travel expenses to the Doctors,  hospitals ,etc.

Steve has taken care of his family, plus ran the family farm and breeding program for years. sometimes one handed. It takes a army to do what he does.

Steve  lives his life to help others in any and everyway he can every day. 

His dream, for as long as I have known him, is to use Horses and Dogs,  in a non profit therapy program to help Teach  all children and adults Unconditional Love.
 
If after all is said and done,  any  remainder of funds will be used to realize that dream to help other, so we can pass these blessings forward.

We do want to thank those that are helping on the farm and taking care of the animals  while this scary process is unfolding,, We are truly blessed

We are unsure what the future holds,  
With Gods grace and your help Steve will Beat this.

In God's Glory and Grace we thank you.

I would like to take this time to thank all of you that supported Nancy and I during our Battle with Cancer. I am still Cancer free," Thank you JESUS", but Nancy lost her battle. It has been a little over a month since her passing, and I am going to close this account on May 1st.

We still have bills that are needing to be paid, due to having to use our only income for treatments not covered by Insurance. If you find it in your hearts to donate once more, or maybe you have been wanting to, but haven't had a chance. I will keep ti available to you until May 1st.

Thank you again for all your generosity and Prayers.

God Bless you all.

Nancy is still doing as well as can be expected. All vital signs have been stable, and she is alert most of the time, however the medications she is on to help keep her comfortable and releave most of her pain is causing some articulating disorders.

She is still eating almost normal, and is still trying to Boss me around, LOl. I don't mind.

I have had to increase our Monetary Goal due to projected future expenses. Insurance is taking care of the Hospice Care, but it doesn't cover the In Home Care when I need a private Nurse to watch over her when I have to take care of our Farm. And even though I don't want to talk about this subject, but after researching all our options, the Funeral expenses are way more than we ever imagined.

So we would like to Thank You all in advance for all your support.

God Bless you all

It is with a sad heart that I am writing this update on Nancy Smallwood.
She just recently had a relapse, and is loosing her battle with cancer.
We want to thank all of you that have been so generous and supportive through this whole ordeal. The Doctors have found extensive amounts of cancer returning to 75% of her Backbone that has already been treated with Radiation. Unfortunately, they are saying that she isn't a good candidate for further treatment, and have said it would be such a higher risk if treated.

With that said, I am reaching out to you for further help, as we are one of those people that did not purchase Life Insurance, because we were so Healthy., and when we did try, it was to late.

This is the last thing we wanted to do, but we have no other choice at this point in our Life.

After doing research in our area, the least that we will need is $6,000.00.

Nancy has asked me to share with you her Love for all of you, and Pray that you never have to face such a Cruel, and Painful Disease like this.

She also mentioned, that Life is to important, and can end with a Blink of an eye. Please Love one another, and above all. Love your self enough to educate, and take care of yourself.

God Bless you all
