Kaci’s Cancer Chronicles 

I have always been taught that if you see something worth fighting for then fight! 

Life has a way of handing us trials that we have to walk on hot coals to beat and endure. Cancer sucks.... there is no good way to say it. We all may know someone who is fighting or has fought this battle so YOU know the toll it can take on you mentally, physically and financially. 

Kaci was diagnosed with breast cancer in October. If you know Kaci, you know that she's fiercely independent and has a really hard time asking for help. We support that but we also know that in times like these, it's important to lean on the friends and family that want to be there for you.  She has to complete 20 weeks of chemo before being off work even more to have a double mastectomy. Her PTO will be well exhausted before then and she is going to need help until she can work again. 

Kaci has a great heart! A love for people, an amazing spirit and the pure love of Christ. We are asking that you help us in this battle by donating. Any amount helps! 

Make sure you follow Kaci’s progress on her blog. We have attached the link.

Thank you to those who are giving and thank you for those who wanted to give but couldn’t. 

Prayer Warriors please continue to pray!

No one truly knows your personal struggles, but God....

A snippet from Kaci’s Cancer Chronicles........

The support continues and it's been very humbling. I've had lots of people reach out to me and offer their sympathy and want to know how they can help. That is an impossible question for me to answer on so many levels and for so many reasons. One of those reasons is that I do not have a lot of answers right now. I can't tell you what I need because I don't know what to expect and I don't know how to plan for the unknown. The only suggestion I have is to pretend I'm drowning(because that's not far from the truth) and just do something. I honestly do not know what I need, so I'm having the hardest time giving suggestions on what could possibly help me right now. But I can say this, a hug goes a long way. My biggest struggle right now is learning how to accept support from others and not let it make me feel bad in the process. STRUGGLE BUS! I'm the worst. I've been so scared to ask for help due to this fear of being rejected that I've just gotten in the habit of doing it myself. It's a fault for sure. Everyone keeps saying I'm strong and I can do this, and maybe I can. But there are times I'm downright dumb. I am going to have to learn the balance between self reliance and allowing people to help me. I make hard situations harder because I can't stand the idea of appearing weak. I'm learning that admitting you need help takes more strength than hiding it.

Kaci will start treatment next week. Thursday She will go in to have an echocardiogram, followed by a port being placed, followed by my first round of chemo. She will do that every other week for 8 weeks. Then they will change her chemo drugs and She will do it once a week for 12 weeks.
After that we will schedule surgery for a double mastectomy. So hopefully by end of summer all the cancer will be gone.
Its gonna be a long road prayers are always needed and welcomed.
