Help Shelby Beat Cancer

On August 4th, our beautiful daughter, Shelby Fox who is only 25 years old, went to the emergency room because she was having trouble breathing, thinking it was something to do with her asthma.  After several x-rays and MRI, she was informed that she had a large tumor on her heart (about half the size of her heart).  A biopsy was done the following week and confirmed she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  She started chemo treatments on September 12th and will continue for about 6 months.  

Her attitude and positive outlook has been nothing short of amazing. She is the most strong-willed person I know and she has not let this situation bring her down at all.  She just got engaged to be married on July 1st to a wonderful man, Jake Wagner.

Despite our recommendations, she is also continuing to pursue her masters degree during this time and planning her wedding.

The medical expenses, as expected, are overwhelming, and while she lives in Nebraska and we are in Georgia, traveling back and forth has been challenging to say the least.  Several people have asked how they can help or donate, so I thought this would be the easiest way.  

We know that God is in complete control and we have faith that He is going to heal Shelby from this dreaded disease.  We have had bracelets made to show our support for Shelby and as a daily reminder to pray for her strength and healing.  They are violet and lime green (the colors of lymphoma awareness) and say #shelbystrong.

If you would like to have one, I will be glad to mail you one with your donation on $5.00 or more (due to the shipping costs).

THANK YOU for your support and please continue to pray for Shelby daily and stay #shelbystrong.
