Cancer Can't Take Christmas!

Marcella's Bridal is calling to our Marcella's Bridal Family to help give the Hop family a wonderful Christmas this year! Our goal is to raise $3,500 so Cancer Can't can go Christmas shopping for this sweet family. Whether your donation is big or small we appreciate you helping us give to this family!

Meet the Hop Family!

We are the Hops, my husband Mike used to be our Superman, working 6 days a week 10 months out of the year. On his summers off we would do some remodeling on our old farmhouse & then take a family vacation and show our five kids the country. At the age of 33 Mike was diagnosed with stage 3c colorectal cancer. He had a 3mmx7mm tumor in his rectum that has started to go up into his sacrum bone. We saw several doctors & decided starting chemotherapy infusions was the best course of action. Three months later we almost lost him to sepsis, after weeks in the hospital and an ostomy bag placed with drain tubes in his back he was on the mend and able to continue chemo infusions. It's been a long, hard road. He did six weeks of chemo/radiation in Coeur D' Alene, ID while I stayed back and worked double time to support our family & cared for our kids. After all this & multiple scans he has been told that there are very few surgeons able to do the resection. Currently it hasn't responded as well as we thought to treatment. In the meantime, we are enjoying as much of the time as we can together as a family.
