RuthAnn Cassis' Cancer Journey

After working through pain for months, RuthAnn was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer metastasized to the bones.   She spent her life raising her own 9 children and  then nannying fulltime for others, and has now found herself unexpectedly unable to work due to the intense pain and loss of mobility due to the cancer progression.    At age 56, she is a single parent who still has 2 teenagers to support and unfortunately her insurance is not covering all of her medical expenses, which have already begun to accrue.

If you have met RuthAnn, you know how much this world is blessed by her presence!  We are hoping to raise money to cover her medical expenses and help her breathe a little easier as she figures out a regular income from here on out.  Any money raised beyond cancer treatment would be used to send her on a trip to Hawaii, as she has never been and  tropical beaches are her favorite place to be!  

She is also a passionate believer in the power of intimate conversation with God, so if you are a praying person and want to commit to a specific time of prayer that would also be a huge support to her.  
We are so thankful for all of you, and are hopeful that restoration is in her future!
