Many of you know and love our sweet Emily & have been praying for her during her battle with cancer. This is her story, and we invite you to pray and share in her journey.

Emily was originally diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 25 in November 2008. After undergoing a double mastectomy and chemotherapy, she was declared "cancer free" for almost 4 years until discovering the cancer had spread to areas in her lungs and brain in November 2012. She has had multiple procedures done over the last 5 years including brain radiation and chemotherapy. In December 2016, they found the cancer had spread to one of her ovaries, and she had a very large tumor removed, as well as, a full hysterectomy. Early this year, she began to feel very ill and short of breath, & they discovered she had large pockets of fluid  (pleural effusions) on both sides of her lungs. After having them drained, they re-accumulated quickly, and the results recently came back declaring the fluid to be cancerous as well. After being admitted to the hospital, they found fluid around her heart (pericardial effusions) as well and blood clots in her lungs. She has been through countless procedures the past week including a heart surgery and tubes placed in both lungs to help drain the fluid. She started chemotherapy again and will be receiving it once/ week. Needless to say, she is weak, exhausted, and fighting everyday.

Her faith in God and attitude through all of her trials has been so amazing and inspiring. She has such a joyful heart and has always been such an encouragement to everyone around her. She is the best mommy and has two precious children: Gage (7yrs) and Charley (1yr). Her sweet husband, Joey, is  self- employed and wants to be by her side as much as he can. We are raising money to help them out while he is unable to work, and help cover miscellaneous expenses while she is in the hospital. The outpouring of encouragement and support has been incredible, and she is feeling so loved. Please continue to pray boldly for her complete healing!

A donation in honor of Emily Sassenhagen. I didn't know her personally but I could tell she was a ray of sunshine to all that knew her and crossed her path. My thoughts and prayers go out to her husband Joey and their two children Gage and Charley. Take comfort in knowing she is healed now and rejoicing with our Lord Jesus. Blessings to you all! from Jenn Garcia

This donation includes money from a loving Cambodian family that Linda cares for in Wills Point. They did not know Emily, but they wish to honor the loss of our family. We hope the funds raised in memory of sweet Em will truly benefit those for whom it is intended.
