Help, Hope and Love for Jami

Update: Jami passed away at home with her family by her side. Jami was loved by so many and everyone that knew her came away with something good in their heart. Jami's family has been blessed that Oakeys in Vinton, VA were willing to work with the family on her final arrangements since Jami did not have any insurance.

If you are able, please help so that Jami's family will have one less burden.

Thank you everyone that has prayed and helped financially, you have no idea how much you have helped
Jami, Matt, Cora and Keegan need HELP!!!!!

Jami's story: Jami just turned 33 years old. Married to Matt and mother of two beautiful children Cora 10 and Keegan 7.

Jami was diagnosed with cancer at 25 years old while pregnant with her son Keegan and had a double mastectomy. Then chemo and radiation after keegan was born. She was in remission until May 2013.

She has tumors in her brain, lungs, hips, spine, breastbone and now liver.

Jami started having seizures Friday 11/4/2016 and was unresponsive for a couple of days. She is now on hospice and originally she was going to have to stay in a facility  due to her being unresponsive  and the children being at home, however Jami WOKE UP! and will now be able to go home and be with her family.

Jami is a strong prayer warrior and we have people all around the world praying for her. She believes as we all do this is in God's hands. 

Jami will never give up. She is fighting like a mama bear. Doesn't want to leave her babies.

  Jami's family is under a tremendous amount of stress and worry as well.
   Matt is the only one working and he has had to miss work to be with Jami and take care of their children, which has put a huge strain on their finances. Our goal is to try and relieve some of the stress of Jami not having life insurance and let her loved ones focus on spending time with Jami and caring for her.  All of us that love Jami appreciate all of the prayers and donations that have been sent. 

Even if you can only spare $1 that will be just as appreciated as $100. Please give what you can to help. Believe me it will be appreciated deeply.
