Out of nowhere, Ebony began to experience pain in her neck that she thought was a pinched nerve. Only to discover that she had a low grade glioma tumor in her cervical neck region of her spine. She has a very RARE form of spinal cancer.
She needed an emergency laminectomy (removal of lamina ~ Spinal bone) in order to remove the tumor.
Ebony will have to undergo continued physical therapy to repair the damage to her right hand and feet from the swelling of the spinal cord during surgery. In addition, she will be starting a regime of chemotherapy and radiation with the intention of eradicating any remains of the cancerous tumor.
She will obviously not be able to return to work until after her treatments since it will compromise her body. We are seeking assistance for her to be able to focus on her healing and not the financial burden that this will create for her family.
We are also seeking prayers for total and complete healing!!!! Any and all donations will be GREATLY appreciated and used to help in Ebony's healing. The medical bills are already starting to roll in...And she just relocated and started a new nursing position prior to her symptoms presenting themselves.....immediate help is needed.
Ebony Thompson Butler is happily married and is a hard-working, motivated, mother of three beautiful boys.
She has struggled over the years to attain her goal as an RN. She is the first in her family to ever attend and attain a college education. And to top if off...she graduated with HONORS!
She has remained positive and faithful and ready to do battle with Jesus at her side!!
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Isaiah 64:25 I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking a bout their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers.
