Rebecca has also gone by many other names over the years—Becca, Becky, Beck… But my personal favorite is “Bear” cuz when I think of bears, I think of teddys—fluffy, warm, and cuddly. Yep, that name used to fit Rebecca best and better just a few months ago before she was diagnosed with one the deadliest cancers out there—pancreatic cancer.
As we all know, cancer is a fierce opponent and pancreatic cancer is a female dog! Teddy bears are generally no match for it and unfortunately that diagnosis and the subsequent months have taken a lot of the stuffing out of my teddy…my “Bear.”
This battle has been tough and fraught with many setbacks. But in spite of it all, Rebecca (Bear) has been fighting the good fight—striving to stay alive; to be “alive” while living! For months now, Bear has been struggling to work while submitting her body to the grueling rounds of chemo—a therapy designed to kill the cancer before it kills it’s host. But now her efforts to keep life “normal” have given way to the fight as she can no longer work or maintain her daily living without the help of others. And so now she needs a little help from her friends and strangers too—just to help stay ahead of the costs of living while battling for life itself.
The reality is that just like cancer, the bills and living expenses don’t stop. In fact, they increase. So we are asking that all who can, be a part of Rebecca’s warrior team and please give something to help Rebecca stay afloat while going through it.
Thank you all in advance for your love, your help, and your prayers!
