I am making this request on behalf of my dear friend, Heide. Several years ago, she received the news no one is ready to hear, “You have cancer.” And while this was a huge curve ball thrown her way, I watched her walk through aggressive surgery and treatment with grace and poise. She was able to endure the hardship through God's love and the support of family and friends. Being a self-employed woman, she trusted God's provision and saw His faithfulness to meet all of her needs through the generosity of many! Yet three years later, Heide is facing the dreadful diagnosis a second time. The ovarian cancer has returned, and while it is difficult news to digest, once again, she is looking to the Lord for guidance and strength.
After much prayer and research, Heide is moving forward with surgery and additional treatments to combat the source of the cancer as well as to strengthen her immune system. This will take place intensively over the next several months with additional treatments over the coming year. Some of those treatments may take place outside the Annapolis-Baltimore area. Currently, due to developing symptoms – especially fatigue and pain – she has had to discontinue working, leaving her without income. Unfortunately, her treatments are expensive and some will not allow for insurance reimbursement.
Because these circumstances will leave her financially depleted, I am asking you to consider contributing to her cause. At the urging of several friends she has allowed us to post this on her behalf. We want to raise $50,000 to cover medical and living expenses while she undergoes treatment. I ask you to consider supporting Heide financially. If you are not able to contribute financially, please encourage her in any way you can including, cards or notes, or most importantly prayers as her faith in God is strong and she believes in the power of prayer. I pray a blessing on each one of you reading this, may you know the joy and grace of God and rest in His peace and love.
