Amanda Anderson - - - My sister. What can I say about this magnificant woman that everyone else doesn't already know? Amanda is 32 years old. She is a magnificant teacher to 18 pre-k children, a fantastic aunt to 5 neices and nephews, a wonderful mother to 2 amazing children (Landon,14, Kodi,5), a tremendous sister to both myself and my brother, and a beautiful daughter.

In 2006 Amanda was diagnosed with melanoma in situ skin cancer. The doctors were able to remove the mole and a little bit more tissue to rid her of the cancer without having to provide any more treatments. She was declared cancer free. Fast forward to April 17, 2017 - - - Amanda had been complaining of severe head pain and dizziness for several weeks. The week prior she went to the doctor and was diagnosed with double ear infection and put on a round of antibiotics. She decided to go back to the clinic where they then sent her to E.R.  There the earth shattering news was thrust upon her. Amanda had a mass covering her entire right frontal lobe of her brain. Three days later she has surgery to remove the mass; it is metastatic melanoma. Her surgeon said that he was able to "miraculously remove the tumor in one piece" and he gave God the glory when delivering this news. At this time we know that they will treat this aggressively with localized radiation in 2 weeks. Pathology results will be in this week and that will determine prognosis and a complete treatment plan.

To add insult to injury, Amanda's teaching position at the local headstart was immediately terminated due to hospitalization. This has not only devastated her, but has also put her in quite a pickle. Since she is a single mother, Amanda will need help financially with bills and to take care of her children until she can get back on her feet  and back to work. If you are not able to donate anything monetary, that is okay. Then we ask for your many prayers and to become a warrior for Amanda's fight against this battle that she has been faced with.

I realize that it has been forever since I have updated on Amanda's status. It has been a crazy roller coaster of a ride the past several months. Glory to God, Amanda has ended her treatments and is now considered CANCER FREE! She is now teaching pre-k again for non-profit from the comfort of her own home for a few girls from her class at the HeadStart for the year. She really does love these children. I have started a fundraiser through Scentsy to help recoup the costs of teaching supplies. I am donating my entire commission to Amanda for her classroom. If you would like to show your support and purchase some Scensty merchandise you can follow this link.

I am sitting here, getting my first Immunotherapy treatment, and filled with such joy! My God is an amazing God! My petscan came back completely clean! There is no visible sign of cancer in my body, or on my skin! This means that the cancer on my brain was definitely from the Melenoma on my skin that was removed 11 years ago. The fact that my petscan is clean now, is a miracle, and confirms for me the neurologist's statement that a single cell escaped and sat on my brain. When that cell activated and started replicating my heavenly father encased it in a hard shell, preventing it from spreading, and allowing it to to be fully removed in one piece! Our God is amazing, and he is still performing miracles. Just watch him continue his miracle in me, as I go from stage 4 metastatic cancer to the brain to being in complete remission. Thank you all for your continued prayers! God not only hears them, but he is answering them.
I love you, all! ♡♡♡

It has been a whirlwind of a couple of days, but I wanted to make sure that I updated everyone with the good news that I have been getting! My first, and only radiation treatment will be this Friday. Yes, you read that right; I will only need one radiation treatment! Praise God! June 1, next Thursday, I will be having my port put in. June 9 I will be getting a full body PET scan which the Dr, said he is going to plan on it coming out clean ( based on my previous scans). My BRAF gene test came back NEGATIVE! Praise GOD! So that means that I will be getting the Immunotherapy treatment. Oncologist says that his treatment plan for me is to have Immunotherapy injections once every two weeks for six months, with periodic scans during this time. During this six month period if all the scans continue to come up clean...I can be called IN REMISSION! Keep your prayers coming! God has been hearing them, and my my doctors have been praising God for the miracles that have already been happening with my health! Prayers for my radiation treatment to go well, for a clean pet scan, and for my remission! God is still in the business of miracles! I love you all♡♡♡♡- Amanda

Amanda had a great visit with her radiologist yesterday. She will only have to do 1 treatment of localized radiation pending MRI results. We will know more after next week's scheduled MRI. We are so very thankful for her team of doctors. They truly are all amazing and God sent. Let's continue to pray more great news. #CatchingFaith

Keep the faith Amanda...NOTHING is too hard for my God. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastomia in August and I'm trusting God for my complete healing and restoration. If he'll do it for me, he can do it for you too!

Anyone think about getting a lawyer? Not sure if ADA falls through in her location but it's worth a try, it's complete discrimination for taking her job away

Amanda is struggling everyday trying to recover from her brain surgery.. The support and prayers on here are very needed and touch her so very deeply. It is so very hard to see the light in such a dark place. Catching Faith is definitely something we all need to do to bring much more light into this world..
