Dear Freinds & Family,
To know the Simards is to love them! Together, Bob, Tish, Luke and Kara are one of the most wonderful families you will ever meet. Bob was diagnosed with colon cancer in September 2014. He began treatment and seemed to respond well. Things were looking up until Bob had a reoccurance in August 2016. Since then, things have been hard! Here is a portion of one of Tish's more recent FB posts~
"Until you walk this walk, you don’t realize all the facets of life it affects. We haven’t gone out to dinner as a family in months. My kids have missed out on things because Mom has to take care of Dad. And they have to take care of Dad. I’ve lost wages and it is causing a real financial struggle. Laundry never gets put away and barely gets washed. Our house needs a deep clean. The fear that rises in the pit of your stomach each time you think something might be really wrong can completely consume you. Scan anxiety is debilitating. The exhaustion is awful. But through it all we never lose hope, and never waiver from the fact that God is with us through every second of the struggle, and every second of the joy! Thank you friends for continuing to pray for us and support us."
The fear that comes along with cancer is hard enough... Please help us ease their burden. Any amount is so very appreciated!
