Please Help My Friend Cathy

My friend, Cathy, needs your help. So far, we've raised $2,278 so far (AMAZING!!!), which helps feed the horses through March. Thanks so much!

Cathy's doing pretty well. She's had five chemo treatments so far, and a second opinion at MD Anderson said she is on a good path at Memorial Hermann and to stick with it. Your prayers have been so helpful so far. Thank you!!

My husband and I have been helping our neighbors, Cathy and Mike Gabriel, with their Arabian Horses. Cathy is a kind-hearted woman that I am so proud to call her my friend. She just went in for surgery a couple weeks ago and found out she has Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer. This after she just battled breast cancer 12 years ago.

She is not sure when she will be able to get back to work – at least 4 months. I am trying to raise money, so her horses have feed and hay while she is not working. She has no sick or family leave to rely on during this difficult time. We’ve set a goal of $4,000 because that should cover hay, feed, travel, supplements and worming medicine among other things.

I hope you all find it in your hearts to help her and her horses that she loves and needs help to feed while she seeks treatment. She is so grateful for anything you can offer, whether it's $1, a prayer, or share. Thank you!

And here's a note from her:

"I've loved Arabian Horses since I was a small child but never had one of my own to love. Beating my first round of cancer helped me make the decision that I would no longer love this beautiful animal from afar. I purchased my first Arabian mare about 6 years ago and have been so blessed since.

Anything you can give, I appreciate so much. I know you all work so hard! Thank you so much!"
