Help Monty Stewart Beat The Big C

Cancer. The dreaded word that you never want to hear for yourself. And when you hear that someone else has it, you feel so powerless. You want to do something... But, what can you do?

Monty Stewart just celebrated his 50th birthday in November. Then he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma. Those of us who know Monty and Janelle know that they have true servants' hearts. They have always given of themselves and their resources. Monty is not just a preacher, but a very caring, compassionate, giving pastor. He and Janelle have both immersed themselves in ministry and outreach for over 25 years, impacting thousands of lives for the glory of God.

Now in their time of need... We can be the hands and feet of Jesus back to them. They definitely need our prayers and support. There are also many practical needs. Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated.

Anyone who has been through something like this or who has major medical issues knows that there are so many expenses. Even if you have insurance, the medical expenses of things not covered adds up. There are so many additional expenses as well. Non-traditional or alternative treatments or treatments at a specialized cancer center that is not part of their insurance coverage ~ should they choose to go that route ~ are not covered by insurance at all and are very costly. There are also meals, travel, etc. Their oldest son, Lawrence, is living in Colorado ~ where his wife is in Veterinary school, and their youngest son, Brennan ~ at age 19 ~ is away from home for the first time in college in Oregon. We also know that the regular bills don't take a break because someone is sick and unable to work.

According to the Dermatology Online Journal ~ "The high costs of melanoma care places it at the top of the most expensive cancers to diagnose, follow, and treat." Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated. The money received will be used for treatment, medical expenses, travel, and living expenses.

There are still many unknowns. Monty is still undergoing tests and waiting on results to determine treatment options. We will update you with more information as we know it.

So, if you want to do something... Most of all... show them your love and support... and pray, pray, pray! And then, anything you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
