James Tanis Turns 50

Hi, I'm Vicki Gill, dear friends of James (he truly is a brother a never had). Many of you may already be aware but James and Kimberly (Jamie & KimmieK) have been through the ringer the last decade. James is diagnosed with MS and struggles more each year with this debilitating disease. James had to "retire" early from teaching school. It was October of 2014 when Jamie started to call me concerned about Kimmie's health- in Dec of that year she was diagnosed with Stage 4 non Hodgkin's Lymphoma type B (I was told by two medical professionals that B means bad-very aggressive). Through Kimmie's diligent research for the both of their health options, power of prayer, healthy eating, supplements and the amazing essentials oils not to mention two differ forms of chemotherapy -Kimmie is in remission Praise God. Their medical bills, co-pays and more have been a huge stress while raising their boys. Now, both Zach (about to finish) and Jake are in college and both hold jobs as well. Jamie teaches music lessons, Kimmie also works extra Beth be her full time job providing professional development.Since cancer/chemo, Kimmiek struggles with chronic pain and fatigue and is mowing her large yard with push mower. Their riding lawn mower has died and is beyond reasonable repairSo....knowing Jamie and Kimmie we could sure bless them by providing the funds for them to buy a new riding lawn mower. I was pricing them at Lowe's and I was thinking that $2000 would be a good goal to help them buy a riding mower and some gas for that bad boy. So help spread the top secret word. His birthday is this week!
