Lori Sechrest, a THA Board of Director, was diagnosed with cancer in August 2017.   Lori was attending a member's annual meeting, when she started feeling under the weather.  A quick surgery to remove her gallbladder, revealed a cancer diagnosis.

Lori's cancer, now classified as stage 4B Colon Cancer, with an unidentified mutation, has now progressed to a critical state.  Lori is undergoing treatment, utilizing multiple protocols, and is in the fight of her life!  Lori has now lost about 1/3 to 1/2 of her body weight, and is experiencing neuropathy in her hands and her feet.  All of this and the various side affects, makes it difficult to perform any task without assistance.

Lori is strong and beautiful and funny!  She is so passionate about the people within her industry, and has served them well as a representative on the industry's Board of Directors, over the last several years.  She has worked tirelessly for us, and now we need to work tirelessly to help her!

As you can imagine, medical procedures and life saving medicine, chemo treatments ... and just daily expenses, are mounting.  We are asking the thousands of people within our manufactured and modular housing community, to come together and help Lori.

I just wanted to post a quick note to our donors, friends and followers! Lori has had a bit of a rough week after a round of chemo, but her spirits are very high!

Lori recently received a special note/gift from my friend, country music artist Wade Hayes. (Some of you may not know that Lori is a singer herself!) Wade is a colon cancer survivor, with a strong message to tell! Such an inspiration! He wrote to Lori on a CD cover of Go Live Your Life, which he recorded after his recovery! So special!!

So, keep that inspiration moving with this campaign and re-post and share, to remind our friends, family and colleagues ... we still need financial help for Lori!

Thank you so much! Best to all of our contributors!

I was able to spend some wonderful time with Lori this morning, as we worked on the administrative side of this GoFundMe Campaign. Lori can't write, right now, so she wanted me to let everyone know how much she and Ronnie appreciates your donations of kindness! If she could send each and everyone of you a handwritten note, she certainly would!

I changed the campaign picture, just to show Lori continues to maintain that never ending smile of hers, in the midst of this fight! We love her so!

Lori was getting ready to get her hair cut today ... as many must do when they go through chemo treatments. She has wonderful friends and acquaintances that help her, by doing things for her at her home. We can't forget to thank all of you as well!!!

Please keep this campaign moving along on your social medial pages!

A milestone! We have reached just at $10,000, in one week! Our donors and social media share points are the best! On behalf of Lori and Ronnie, I am so appreciative of our progress!

Please continue to share this special medical fundraiser on your social media accounts! We need our friend, our colleague, our Board of Director... on the road to recovery!

I have attached a familiar picture of Lori, from one of our Annual Member Meeting outings! This is Lori in healthier times, and we want to see her there again!

Thank you again to all, and let's keep those donations coming!

I am so appreciative to each and every one of the early donors, and to the many of you who have shared this fundraising campaign for Lori, on your social media networks! As of this morning, we have raised over $8700! Oh my goodness! So thankful!

I just talked to Ronnie (Sechrest), and Lori has been more active this week with a few trips up and down the stairs! Yay!

Please continue to keep Lori in your prayers and continue to share this message. If you get a chance, take a look at some of the comments posted from friends, family and co-workers! We love this family!
