To know Witney is to love her. Her outgoing personality is magnetic, and it is clear as soon as you meet her that she wants to know YOUR story. In one word, Witney is selfless. Always doing for, caring about, and loving on others.
Well, friends, it is time that Witney has warriors of her own to love on and support her through a challenging time.
On January 8, Witney was diagnosed with Ductal Carcinoma In Situ. This is the earliest form of breast cancer, and thanks be to God, she is Stage 0. Because of the location of the cancer and the chance that it could become invasive, her surgeons are recommending a double mastectomy. This diagnosis was quite shocking, because Witney’s recent mammograms were all clear.
Witney & Jason’s 4th child, 1 1/2 year old Beau, has a rare neurological disorder called Sturge-Weber Syndrome. He has a large Port Wine Stain that covers part of his face, glaucoma and is prone to having seizures. Beau has had 17 laser surgeries, 3 glaucoma surgeries and one round of seizures. During the first year of Beau’s life, Witney relied heavily on the saying “Faith Over Fear” to get through some tough times.
That sweet baby boy was actually the one who discovered his Mama’s cancer. In the midst of trying to make Beau’s life better, he saved hers.
Jason and Witney are still paying off hospital bills for Beau from 2016 and now have to cover Witney’s mastectomy, because the doctors and hospital are out of network. Witney feels confident in her decision to work with these doctors at the only hospital in the world dedicated to breast cancer reconstruction.
When Witney was at the hospital for a consultation, they gave her a comfy pair of fuzzy socks. She joked that they were her $24,000 fuzzy socks (the cost of her upcoming surgery and reconstruction).
So let's help the Arch family put a dent in the $24,000 for Witney's surgical costs AND the fuzzy socks she so well deserves! And please continue to cover the whole family in prayer, warmth and love.
We got this!
