Rebecca Riggle's Fight for Life

Dear Loved Ones
We are trusting in God's Sovereignty and coming to you with extreme urgency. Many of you have been impacted by Jim & Rebecca(Manley) Riggle or know someone who has.

Rebecca, for the past 3.5 years, has been battling breast cancer. She is currently fighting very hard, however, she is very weak and in need of aggressive care to save her life. Due to complications with her treatments she has now exhausted all options for local health care. Through much research, prayer, and frankly, by God's grace, hope has been given to her through a cutting edge program on the West Coast. She will receive some of the most advanced care available for her particular situation. The issue and reason why we are coming to you is the need to fund the entire care package by March 19, 2018 (her scheduled intake to the facility).  Insurance does not cover any of the cost; and this program requires the funds for the care to be paid in full before arrival.  The initial total for the program is $55,800. The remaining $4,200 of the funds we're asking for are to be used for travel expenses and other residual expenses associated with transporting and securing Rebecca at the medical facility. We are unsure as to whether that is the total amount of funds we will fully need but as for now it is the total we know. We are also aware of the need for follow up visits and care after her initial intake, so the remainder will also go toward that as well.

Family and Friends, we are reaching out because we believe that God uses people to love on and care for those He loves. We know He is ultimately in control of all things and that He will be glorified in all that will transpire. 

With that we ask that you please consider partnering with us in two ways:
1. Prayer - We know God uses the prayers of His people to accomplish His good, so please:
 - Pray for healing.
 - Pray for rest.
 - Pray for safety and strength for the trip West.
 - Pray for the right people to surround her through this journey.
 - Pray for Gospel Opportunities along the journey. 
However, we specifically ask you pray that God is glorified in all aspects of this journey.
2. Financial Help - Rebecca needs your help financially. Our hope and trust is ultimately in God and His plan. We ask that you would consider and pray about how God would use you in this journey. 

Thank you for allowing us to share this burden with you. We will do our best to update you on her progress as often as possible. We do ask that any attempt to contact the Riggle family be done through the Gofundme page or via email & Facebook and not via phone with the understanding that they may not respond promptly. All encouragement is welcomed through those avenues only as they are extremely busy focusing on Rebecca’s care

We know, ultimately, God is Sovereign over all things so we place our Faith and Trust in Him and His sovereign plan.

Thank you for partnering with us as we seek His help and guidance.

"The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent" - Exodus 14:14

"If disaster comes upon us, the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we will stand before this house and before You—for Your name is in this house—and cry out to You in our affliction, and You will hear and save." - 2 Chronicles 20:9

(Jacob Siegwart is the organizer of the fund and was asked specifically by the Riggle family to set it up. He is the husband of Julia (Manley) Siegwart, Rebecca's Sister. All funds will be wired directly to Jim and Rebecca Riggle)
