Early in 2017 Corey was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a cancer with no cure. This fight has been more involved than Corey and Mindy could have ever imagined.
In addition to the hardship of having to live away from their kids for several weeks last fall in an apartment near the cancer treament center in Seattle, a lot of added expenses - on top of regular househould expenses - have made things difficult for Corey and Mindy.
Now, Corey has been in the ICU for several days and we actually didn't think he'd make it through the night last Thursday night. He's in a medically induced coma and on life support, as machines are breathing 100% for him.
He has some sort of lung infection that the doctors aren't sure how to treat because they don't know what it is and why it happened. It's been narrowed down to a possible fungal infection (which could still take considerable time to determine) or chemo toxicity. We're expecting some test results soon, which will enable them to treat it specifically.
Mindy's amazing church family is handling meals for the next couple of weeks, but there are a lot of additional expenses that they didn't expect to have, and Corey is unable to work right now.
So many of their friends and family in Washington have stepped up to help with taking the kids to practice and church, as well as providing nightly dinners. We are so grateful for all the love and support that's been offered.
But many friends and family outside of Washington are too far away to offer practical help, so I decided to start this fund for anyone, near or far, who wants to help in a tangible way.
The truth is that cancer is going to have a major impact on them for a very long time. Anything we can do to help alleviate some pressure would be so appreciated.
If you feel so inclined, please make a donation to help them through this difficult time. If you have anyone you'd like to share this with, please do, but we'd appreciate it if you block Mindy and Corey from seeing the post, since it's such a difficult time for them!
This fund is set up to automatically deposit donations into their account in regular intervals, and we look forward to surprising her with a huge blessing!
Mindy's best friend Lori came up with the genius idea to send gift cards for the stores they shop at most (Target, Costco, Amazon). You can purchase gift cards here: https://www.giftcardmall.com/ and they will be emailed directly to Mindy & Corey. GoFundMe doesn't allow us to publish their email address here, so if you want to send a gift card, please message me to request her email address and I'll give it to you :)
They could use these right away, so this isn't a surprise.
Thank you for any help you can offer!!
