On Tuesday, Dec 17, Amber VanVickle was diagnosed with stage IV cancer in her colon, lungs and liver that will require immediate, intensive treatment.
Amber and Dave are a beautiful example of holiness, trusting in God, and love. They have 5 amazing children, two of whom have a variety of special medical needs.
Right now there’s a lot of uncertainty, but if you know Amber and Dave at all, one thing is certain. They will glorify and magnify God in this new trial.
9 years ago Dave began working as a full time Catholic Evangelist, because he answered the Lord’s call to work in a parish and this was a financial leap of faith and trust in the Lord for their family.
Amber is an amazing wife and mom who puts her faith in Christ first and foremost in everything she does. She lovingly homeschools all but one of their kids.
Already facing high expenses and medical treatments for their kids with special needs, Dave often travels and speaks around the country. He’s one of the hardest working guys I have ever met.
Personally, I can’t imagine the range of emotions and thoughts they are facing. I want to ask people to pray and fast in earnest for them. I know God will be glorified in this family as he already is.
Secondly, I know people want to help. I believe we can help relieve at least some of the burden by helping financially. Even before this medical crisis, their bills were high. Let’s come together as the Body of Christ and rally around the VanVickles so Dave doesn’t have to travel as much and they can both focus on their family during this crisis. Thank you for whatever help you can give. It’s always humbling to ask for help, but as I said above, I know that God will be glorified in this. The VanVickles are fighters.
Dear cancer and Satan, please prepare to have your asses kicked.
