Our dear Amos passed away Thursday, September 7th at 3:30pm.

The touching story is best told by his wonderful wife in this blog post.

If you've been following this story on NBC's America's Got Talent, you know Amos is very proud of his daughter (Evie Clair) and her success on the program.

Please consider donating what you can to help this young family manage some of the costs associated with Amos' treatment.

We thank you for your tremendous generosity.

Amos's health has declined greatly over the past month. He has been hospitalized indefinitely.

If you've been following this story on NBC's America's Got Talent, you know he's very proud of his daughter (Evie Clair) and her success on the program. He wants so badly to be with Evie to show his love and support -- but in his current state, it's impossible.

Please consider donating what you can to help this young family manage some of the costs associated with Amos' treatment and recovery.

We thank you for your tremendous generosity.

I was thinking if I could get every one of my friends to donate $10, we could send this deserving family, gee, probably $30!

Seriously folks, Amos and his family are still fighting the cancer demon with smiles on their faces.

Please consider helping lighten their financial burden if you can.

Every dollar (yes every $1) helps.

God bless.

Snippet from today's blog:

"Today was Amos’s 5th round of chemo. We spent the day at Banner Andersen Cancer Center. I like it when we get a room rather than a chair. The beds in the room are big enough for snuggling. I’m not sure if that’s allowed but I don’t care. They tried to give him the chemo in a different order today to see if it will help with the hand cramping but his hands have already started to cramp. At least his numbers are good enough that he didn’t need the extra drugs to boost white blood cells."

Dear Hillary, I watched your daughter's beautiful performance on America's Got Talent, and immediately knew I wanted to reach out to help your husband Amos win his battle with cancer. I only wish I'd heard of you earlier, but having seen Amos, and his strength during that bear hug, I don't think its too late at all. My name is Margaret Bailey, and I'm writing through my husband's (Dave Bailey) Facebook, because I'm not on Facebook. I'm a retired Nurse Practitioner, homebody, but still board certified with all my licenses and prescriptive authority. I graduated NP from UW in Seattle, and also got their graduate certification in Complementary and Alternative Medicine. (CAM) I am a certified CancerGuide. I have been certified as an RN to give chemotherapy. I completed a program in Beijing in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture. My most important studies took place on the Big Island of Hawaii, 1996-1998, when I was in Papa Henry Auwae's apprenticeship class for Hawaiian plant medicines. That is where I learned to dose fresh turmeric for cancer patients. I would love to teach you how to use fresh whole root turmeric to win the battle against colon cancer. I would like to send you some research on turmeric and colon cancer. And I would like to overnight express some fresh whole root turmeric to you, both as the raw root, and as the prepared "turmeric salsa". I think turmeric will be that game-changer you've been praying for. I never charge any money when I help cancer patients, in fact, it costs us money to teach people how to take fresh whole root turmeric to fight cancer. This is one of the ways I use my life to serve God. I help those who cross my path, and I feel you and Amos have crossed my path. I would love it if Evie didn't have to lose her Dad, and I know I can help. Besides the fresh turmeric, there is the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio that you need to know to guide Amos's healing diet. I have spent a few hours trying to find you under last name "Clair" and finally found you under Abplanalp. I would love for you to call or email me right away. My number is three six oh six eight one seven zero four three, and my email is yinyangmaggie at yahoo dot com I honestly want nothing in return but to see that precious Evie doesn't lose her Dad. Sincerely yours, Margaret Bailey, ARNP

I would love to share a couple of poems my daughter Rachel wrote about my illness and how at my weakest God still used me to bless His Kingdom. Plus, I'm still here serving others after being told to get my affairs in order back in 2000 when I was give less than 3-weeks to live. Our entire family is praying God heals you.

Dear Hillary and children, my heart aches as I just read that Amos passed away. He fought a valiant fight. He was a faithful servant of Heavenly Father and a good man. I didn't personally know him or his brother, Tom, from our missions, but I have felt the spirit many times as I have read your blog and watched the faith, love, courage, bravery, etc. that all of you and Amos had as he went through the cancer. Through reading your blog and seeing all of you at Evie's AGT performances, I feel as though I did know Amos in a way. I am grateful Amos was released from the mortal pain, and that all of you were able to be by his side as he passed through the veil. I was at the temple tonight and put your family's name on the prayer roll. I have felt the spirit all day today as my thoughts and prayers have been with you, even before I learned of his passing. May God's loving arms surround you all and continue to buoy you up during the difficult days ahead and at all times. I am grateful for the knowledge of the gospel and that your family will be together again because of the Priesthood power and temple ordinances. Thank you all for being such great examples to everyone. My love and thoughts are with each of you.

Dear Evie and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you are able to find peace. I was an intermittent viewer of AGT prior to 2012, but started watching in earnest after my Dad died in 5/2012. The AGT show premieres around the time (of year) around my Dad's death, and helps me cope. Thank you for helping me in my time of loss; your voice, vision, and veritable intestinal fortitude in times of stress are beautiful qualities. Please reach out if I can be of any help.

Your amazing Evie, Love Ya! And I hope you win. Now your Father, please go to https://gerson.org/gerpress/ I believe this is the answer for your Father. Many people have been saved through natural cures, Gerson have been doing it for 80 years. I cured my arthritis in 3 days and my gum disease in 2 1/2 months, doctors say they are incurable, I beg to differ. Im guessing chemo has not worked for your Father? I would try the Gerson way, remember that we came into this world all natural, with no synthetic garbage in our body's, so what will give our body a better chance to heal itself, synthetic or natural? I would also use the budwig diet, its simple, organic flaxseed oil combined with organic low fat cottage cheese, believe it or not. It can turn abnormal & cancer cells back to normal cells, without killing them. A friend of a friend said that his friend's dog had a brain tumor and was just laying in the same spot for weeks, he had to pick him up to take him outside, I told my friend to tell him to put some flaxseed oil in his food, he did it and after a few hours, the dog jumped up and ran to the door, that's mind blowing, it was to late in the game to save the dog, but it gave the dog a better life, of what he had left. It goes to show how amazing natural things can be for all living things. Its not to late for your Father, please try these great natural things. keep my email and If you can, keep me informed on his progress. Love Mark

My hearts feels your family's pain. I myself lost my father last month from stage 4 colon cancer as well. He fought a 2.5 year battle. Its sad that a illness commonly seen in seinors is taking such young lives, my father was only 48. Stay strong and live life a day at a time. He will never be forgotten. You have so much love and support around you. Imbrace it and cherish it. It will help you through.

I want to be a part of Team Amos. Amos Abplanalp was a psychologist who worked in a prison, a leader at church, and also a well-loved husband and father. He was named after the prophet Amos. Amos was an optometrist. I visited my sister, and she arranged for me to do job-shadowing in the hospital where her husband worked. Someone there told me about optometry; "One or two". Then I job-shadowed an optometrist and found out that sometimes he said "Three or four" or "Five or six" because he got tired of saying "One or two." The book of Amos continually repeats "For three" "and for four". Amos also was a seer who helped others see clearer. With one team named for two men named Amos, we can remember that for three trangressions of Cancer and for four, God shall not turn away the punishment thereof, and in five months or six we shall see a brighter day! Go Team Amos!
