Kick Cancer' s Butt

Pam is a great friend to many of us. She is an amazing mother and truly enjoys life. This page was designed to show our love and support for her, Quinn, and Shawn and help them along the way. Shawn will be the only person working for quite some time. We also have a meal train going for them. Lets help relieve them of a financial burden and donate money they can use to help get the things Quinn needs, bills, etc.

Below is a message from Pam:

If you could have one wish what would it be? A week ago I would have probably had a selfish answer. Like to be rich. A new car. A pony for Quinn.

Today my answer is much different. My wish would be that there was no such thing as cancer. A week ago I never thought about it much. Now it's the only thing running though my mind. My wish would be that no one would ever have to feel these feelings, go through what I'm about to go through...

And that's because on June 6th 2017, I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.

I've debated sharing this news publicly. But then I look at my baby.

I'm not asking for sympathy, not for myself. I'm asking for prayers. For Thoughts. Whatever you believe in...for this right here.....My love, my heart, my world. My greatest joy and biggest accomplishment. For my little girl. Who needs her mommy and needs my strength. It's not going to be easy, but this is all the motivation I need.

I WILL fight my entire life for her. To be her mom. Her teacher. Her friend. And I'm about to prove that. Chemo/surgery/radiation..all coming up in the very near future.

I know I have an army behind me...the support I've already received has been almost overwhelming at times, but in a good way. My friends and family have already saved my mind from dark places...Shawn and my sister Tracy
have wiped away most of tears and calmed my fears a million times already. Ed Akacki, my daddy. My backbone, my best friend...gives the absolute best hugs and has made me smile when that's the last thing I thought I could do.

I know I can't do this alone. I know that. So as the song says, I won't be afraid...as long as you stand by me. ❤❤
