Join Kristi's Fight

Kristi found a small bump in December, but it turned out to be nothing.  Several months later, the standard follow up appointment revealed an 8 cm mass in her left breast that had already spread to at least 5 lymph nodes. Kristi has stage 3 breast cancer.

As it normally happens, this was an unexpected turn of events. Kristi is only 33 and has an energetic two year old and a witty mine-craft-loving five year old. She expected to spend the rest of 2018 worrying about packing creative lunches for her new kindergartner and chasing around a toddler, but now she is planning on starting chemotherapy within 2 weeks of finding out that she has stage 3 breast cancer. 

She is going to tackle the chemotherapy treatments over the next five months, and then she will go into surgery for the full removal of her left breast. On average, the medications alone can cost tens of thousands of dollars, not including the doctor visits, scans, surgeries, and other unexpected expenses that can add up quickly.  But as many of you know, the costs of cancer treatment extends well beyond the initial treatment and can last for at least five years post surgery for additional medications, treatment cycles,  and follow up scans. 

If you are able to financially support Kristi and her family during this time, your generosity is met with sincere gratitude. Most importantly, the family is asking for your prayer, your faith in God's ability to move mountains beyond our understanding, and encouragement for both Kristi, Brock, and their two young boys. If you'd like to help in any other way, please let us know. 

Thank You.
