Nearly 20 years ago they fell in love and have remained by each other ever since. They dated for a while and then had Justin. After moving to Georgia they got married in 2007 in the home they built among family and friends. They then had Myles and lastly Little Miss Harper. Their family was complete and they continued building their life trying to create a legacy for their children.
In December 2017, their lives would forever be changed. After a surprise trip for Steve's 45th Birthday they found out that he had cancer, specifics unknown they faced it head on together. In January he underwent emergency surgery that nearly killed him. This is when we found out he had Stage IV Colon Cancer. Through months of chemo he was showing progress, gained all his weight back and was looking and feeling great. In June they were told he had tumors the had gotten bigger and some new tumors. This was not something they wanted to hear but here they were again ready to face it head on. In July during his port study things would get even worst.
Under a lot of stress, mentally and financially Pantina thought she was having a heart attack and went to the ER to get checked out. After an EKG and blood test they ruled out any heart problems. Due to the pain in her neck the doctor wanted to do a CT Scan to rule out blood clots. The results were unreal...they found a mass in the center of her chest. How can this be? She was scared and still trying to remain strong for her husband and her children. A biopsy would report that the tumor in her chest was a malignant...Thymic Epithelial Neoplasm, it is a very rare tumor.
So here we are a young couple with three beautiful young children. Both facing the fight of their lives. Future uncertain they pray and keep fighting.
We need your help...when Steve was diagnosed he had to stop working and Pantina had to go back to work and try her best to take care of the financial responsibilities for the family along with help from family and friends. Now as she faces her own battle she needs your help. She will have surgery on October 17, 2018 and will be in the hospital for 3 days following 4 weeks of recovery. I am asking that you please donate to the family. All money raised will be used for the family's expenses. No amount is too small and if you can't donate please pray for them. Please, please share page!!!
