David & Connie Sanford

David Sanford is the pastor of Branded by Christ Cowboy Church and teaches at many AFCC schools and clinics. His wife, Connie, works for the AFCC teaching and overseeing camp registrations. 
David had a stroke the first of the year, and by Jan 22 symptoms had worsened so much that he ended up in the hospital for eight days. At his most critical point he could no longer move his left side. 
An MRI and a full body cat scan showed two masses—one in his left lung and one on his brainstem, and biopsies revealed small cell lung cancer that had metastasized to his brainstem. 
His treatment plan includes 10 radiation treatments to be followed by 4 cycles of chemo— approximately four months total treatment.  Each series of treatments will cost between $5,000 and $10,000. 
With only a limited health insurance plan, they’ve paid out almost $17K already, which has wiped out savings including the money they’ve been setting aside to finish the next stage of the home they’re building.   

They’ve cut living expenses to the bone, as David has been unable to work for almost two months and have put David’s truck up for sale to help meet expenses. 

Their desire is to honor God with every step of this journey, and they covet your prayers. If God lays it on your heart to give they would accept those gifts with humble gratitude and love.
