Becca's Fight Against Breast Cancer

Becca was diagnosed with breast cancer on Monday, January 6th. A very aggressive round of chemotherapy treatments will begin the week of January 20th. There will be 2 different types of chemo treatments: 8 weeks of the first type, followed by 12 weeks of the second, coming to a total of 20 weeks. Once the chemo treatments are completed (5-6 months from now), the decision to undergo a lumpectomy or mastectomy will be determined. There are still lots of questions that we can't answer, and more testing to be done (ie: bone scan, CT scans, etc).  Becca is expected to lose her hair by week 4 of the chemo treatment. 

As you all know, Becca cares for three small children, one of which, sweet Rosie, has special needs and requires full time care. As you also know, Becca is an incredibly strong and courageous woman, and if anyone can come out on the other side of this victorious, it's Becca. However, there are still many challenges to endure in the coming year, so, on behalf of Becca's family and close friends, we're raising money to help with medical bills, living expenses, meal services, the cost of wigs, and many other unforeseen  costs that will undoubtedly arise during this arduous journey.

If you're wondering how else you can help, we ask that you pray for Becca's healing, and for wisdom for all the doctors who will be caring for and making decisions about Becca's treatments and health over the coming year. We also ask that you pray for sustained health for little Rosie. Historically, February has always been a hard month for her, (cold, flu and pneumonia season), and we need her to stay well, allowing Becca to throw her energy into her own healing, so she can get past this and continue caring for her family and loved ones. 

Thank you for pouring your love out on Becca, Joe and their kids, and thank you so much for all your prayers. We are deeply grateful and appreciative of donations in any and all forms.
