Candace's Medical Funds

This time of year brings Christmas traditions, shopping for loved ones and celebrating with family and friends. But what would happen if you could not do any of it this year?

What if you had to start chemotherapy treatments and were sick most of the day? What if you were told, at the precious age of 31, you have cancer.

This is exactly what my dear friend Candace is dealing with. At 31 years of age, she has been diagnosed with cancer.

In the summer of 2017, she married her soul mate. Most newlyweds anticipate joy and excitement along with their vows. However, shortly after the wedding, Candace became very ill and was later diagnosed in November of 2017. This has drastically changed the beginning of their marriage.

Candace was on medical leave prior to her diagnoses, because she was so ill.

Six weeks prior to her diagnoses, she was laid off, due to unforessable circumstances. Her medical leave is done as of December 2017, resulting in no insurance for medical treatment come 2018. The couple is very blessed to have at least one income from Candace's husband. They remain strong for her beautiful 4-year-old daughter.

Please take the time during your busy Christmas season to help others. Consider donating to Candace and her family to help them through this difficult time. Please know this is a couple that would help anyone in need and are grateful for any help.
I would love nothing more for Candace to be relieved of their financial burden, even for a few months, so she can concentrate on her health!

God is the reason why...
even in pain, Candace smiles,
In confusion, Candace understands,
and in fear, Candace continues to fight! 

Please know your kindness is appreciated!
Please keep Candace in your prayers.
