"I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33
Cancer is pure evil, we hate it and it is taking our friend! Blake doesn't have much time left: pray, visit, send a kind word, give....If you are going to do something, now is the time! If you haven't seen Nancy's updated blog (the link is below)
I am sure that very few have thought about how much laundry is created while caring for Blake. So last week Nancy and Blake, together, wore out their washer and dryer. They quit working! The good news, go fund me was able to take this one small thing off Nancy's list of worries.
This laundry story may seem small or trivial. It's not, it's huge, in fact, every small thing is HUGE.
Please, look into your heart....give!
Our friend Blake, his wife Nancy and their two sons Chase (16) and Carter (14) have been struck with an bone crushing tragedy. 13 months ago Blake was diagnosed with a very agressive form of brain cancer called gleoblastoma. At this point it is inoperable and, barring a direct intervention from the hand of God, it is terminal. Blake's wife, Nancy, has been blogging (https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/blakebartley/journal). Please see the blog for updates and a full overview of their battle.
As noted in Nancy's most recent blog, Blake's condition has deteriorated such that she will be taking a leave of absence from work to care for Blake full time. Even with this, Nancy will not be able to do it alone. The expense of in-home nursing care, medical equipment and various other needs are not covered by insurance and are brutally expensive. We are not sure how much time Blake has left and want to do everything we can to ensure that he can be at home with his family. Please look into your heart and give whatever amount you feel is right. We thank you in advance for your thoughts, prayers and any amount you can give.
May God bless us all.
"But You, oh Lord, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the One who holds my head high." Psalms 3:3
