The battle of Dee’s life

In February of 2015 Lonnie Dee Carlile was diagnosed with stage 3 Colon Cancer. After plenty of poking, prodding, and several scans, it was determined that Dee also has Liver Cancer. An aggressive (and expensive) course of chemotherapy followed by radiation and multiple surgeries have been planned. Dee knows that with faith in the Lord, anything is possible. He accepts the journey the Lord has laid before him.

A lifetime of giving

Dee is a loving husband, father of three, the Senior Pastor at Fairmeadows Baptist Church, and a salesman at Clay Cooley – Chrysler Jeep Dodge. Over the past 35+ years Dee has volunteered countless hours coaching youth baseball and continues today. Dee gives so much of himself to others and is always there to help family, friends, coworkers, parishioners, fellow coaches, and players. Now it’s time for everyone to help Dee.

You can make a difference

The needs are so many, but with the Lord and your help, Dee knows he will defeat cancer. Here’s how you can help:

·      Prayer – our most valuable resource.
·      Hearts, mind and tongue – keep Dee in your heart, on your mind and speak of him to others that they might join us. Share this page on Facebook and Twitter and use the #SaveDeesButt hashtag.
·      Monetary – contribute what you can to “Save Dees butt.” All donations will go towards Dee’s mounting medical bill. Every dollar counts. It’s a simple thank you to someone who has spent his life giving.

Words cannot thank you enough and God bless!

Satan is continuing to make an attempt to destroy me and my faith. The treatment continues which allows me to stand tall in my faith for people I would otherwise not met. I am now going through round 46 of chemo and have had 39 radiation treatments. They have taken their toll on my gorgeous body.lol I dropped a large amount of weight from July through September. I managed to get all the way down to 154 pounds. I looked like the kids on feed the children. After 2 operations I have managed to get back up to a respectable 203. I will have one more round of chemotherapy after this one and then more scans. I will have at a minimum of two more surgeries but won't know how soon until the scans are done. The treatments have caused some major physical damage that will have to be surgically repaired. I'm beginning to think that my doctors are using me to get their kids through college. Along with the regular treatments my prescription drugs run about $650 per month and they just added another one that is only $425 per month. I guess the neuropathy and other side effects are not enough to satisfy them so now they are digging deeper into cancer patients finances as well. I am so grateful for the prayers from everyone on my team. Messages, texts, and calls are also appreciated and encouraged at this point. Needless to say, financial support is a complete blessings. If you are on my team, we are going to win so get ready for a celelbration. I thought we would already have done it by now, but God has more for me to do here obviously. If you are not on the team and either an opponent or spectator, I'm sorry you picked the wrong opponent, yet my prayers are continuing for you as well as my team. God bless us all. Let go and let God.

Well after two operations in the last two months and most likely I'm going three for three later this month, I'm physically beat. I will be meeting with my colon surgeon Tuesday morning to discuss the results of my biopsies. We will then determine the next step. After surgery last Friday, I was extremely disappointed with the possible choices. I am dealing with it the best that I can now. Regardless of the consultation, I will not give up or quit fighting. I still can't figure out why the devil is trying so hard to destroy me. All if the attacks on my family, my health, my finances, and he just keeps turning up the heat. Obviously he hasn't figured out that God is my Father and I'm not going to let anyone or anything change that fact. I will follow my God to my grave. I can only believe that there is still a reason for all of this humbling and humility I've learned. I am beginning to think that this was never planned to test me, my faith, or my loyalty, but maybe those around me. I don't know. Its funny how many twists and turns your mind can discover when you only sleep an hour or so ever night. This is not meant to be a downer or poor pitiful me update. I know that my faith in God is not in vain. I ask for, and am grateful for, prayers for my wife, my children, my care takers, my healing, my finances, and the lost. I could not have made it this far without support and I am forever appreciative. Please take the time to reflect on your lives and be grateful for everyone who has and still does love you. We never know when it can change. I'm just going to do my best to keep a smile on my face and live a life that I will not be ashamed of living. Until next time, pray for me to follow God's direction with my decision making, and I will not regret the choice that I make. Let go and let God.

Well my journey of fun has begun. Started earlier today with magnesium nitrate and just completed round one of two of the Movi-prep, antibiotics and anti seizure pills as well. This is not something that I wanted nor anticipated, but its the path my Lord has chosen, so I must go. With the damage caused by radiation, chemo, and the continued infections, I have no real options if I expect any quality of life going forward. I am physically, emotionally, and financially drained. However, spiritually I've never been stronger. I honestly have to openly admit that I have some apprehension and am trying not to doubt. This has been the most difficult year and a half that I have ever experienced from personal to financial and I could not have made it without help from many of you. Prayerfully this marks the beginning of the end of this gruelish nightmare. There have been several things that have happened that have hurt me so bad personally and physically that I know I will never be the same, but praying these things will only help me to be better. As I have said from the start, I know God has a purpose. I am working hard to restore my swag because my self esteem is currently in the dumper. I am eternally grateful for all of your support and ask from the bottom of my heart for continued prayers for me and my family. This has taken a large toll on us all. God bless each and every one of you. I could not do this alone. Surgery is scheduled to begin at 7 in the morning and because of the damage involved it could take five hours plus to complete. If all goes well I'll be back up and running in 6 to 8 weeks. Feel free to share maybe a millionaire will care.lol let go and let God. #savedeesbutt

I have not updated in a while to be honest I have not been up to it. Last visit to oncologist was three weeks ago and before I could get a clear update on my cancer, she ordered up a bunch of blood cultures and labs. She did say that the treatment was looking good, but my spleen and kidneys were not looking normal. Great. She said it is due to a severe infection. I asked if the chemo could be affecting them. She said maybe but not likely. Sure I thought. My weight had dropped to 154 which is a concern. We have put chemo on hold until the infection clears up and I can gain some weight back. These antibiotics I am taking are a trip. I have had several episodes of hallucinations which have been wild. I have been pretty much bed ridden for two weeks. Not much fun because I hate to have people wait on me. My wife and children have been awesome. I do feel a little stronger and am praying this will pass soon. I appreciate all of the prayers and thoughts. It is still a struggle emotionally since I can't do things for my family that I am accustomed to do for them. Satan is attacking at every turn but I guess he has not figured it out that I belong to God. Any and all support is greatly appreciated. I am grateful to belong to such a wonderful family of God. I am so grateful for the lessons taught in the book of Job. Keep the faith and I will continue to fight. Feel free to share. Let go and let God. #savedeesbutt

I think we, and definitely I do, try to figure out what God is doing way too much. We are not privy to the counsels meeting in heavens which are allowing circumstances and protecting us from others, as the Lord sovereignly works His will. But, we know we can trust Him with our very lives and souls. I'm proud of you, and wish I could take some of your tired away. Press on and in. Love you!
