LIVES CHANGED IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE.
On March 14th, one of my dearest friends, Vanessa Sandy from Bridgeport, WV was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and was admitted to Ruby Memorial Hospital that evening and will be there for a month.
Vanessa will be going through very intense chemotherapy (it started tonight) as the leukemia is very aggressive.
Vanessa is a STRONG WOMAN and a fighter! She amazes me everyday! She may get knocked down, but this girl doesn't stay down!
She is a single mom of 3 precious blessings. She works 2 jobs plus works her It Works business with fire and passion to make a better life for her family! She is also very involved with Pet Helpers and has a big heart for, and a lot of times, a place in her home for fur babies who need fostered!
Please pray for Vanessa and her family for comfort and her healing. She is a sister in Christ and firmly believes God will heal her. Please donate whatever you feel led to to help cover her bills and medical expenses.

Vanessa got to go home yesterday! Praise our FAITHFUL Lord! But the road to remission is a long one... Vanessa will have many follow up dr. appointments and several rounds of outpatient chemotherapy that will require a week stay in Morgantown (not in the hospital, but she will stay at the Rosembaum house). She will still require blood and platlet transfusions, all as a part of her treatment plan. During the course of at least the next 8 months, she will not be able to work. The basket bingo is the first of several fund raisers in planning, as well as an account that has been established at Huntington Bank (Bridgeport, WV) in the name "Vanessa's Fight Against Leukemia" where donations can be made.

Please let us know if you are interested in purchasing a ticket. It's a guaranteed good time for a great cause!

Thank you to everyone for all the continued love, prayers, and donations that have been received!

Sat. night Vanessa's platelets we're at a 3 and fever 101 again. Another set of blood cultures were done. Platelet transfusion complete, however about 20 minutes into blood transfusion she started welting up and itching all over with eyes and facial swelling. Transfusion had to be stopped and benadryl given again. She was hooked to IV antibiotics to run for 3 hours. Her fever did break. Thank you all for your love and prayers! She has been very humbled by the outpour of love! ❤️
She has been finished with chemo for a little over a week, but will remain in the hospital for an unknown amount of time. She had another bone marrow biopsy Wednesday. After those results, she'll know a little more. Even after she gets out of the hospital, she will still remain on hospital property because of daily blood work and tests. This is also for an unknown amount of time.

Just wanted to say hi to everyone and let you know that every single message, text and phone call is great appreciated and not going overlooked. This chemo had been effecting my ability to efficiently respond, so please don't think I won't get back with you or they don't matter. The tremendous support and out pouring of love have been overwhelming. Just seeing how many people care is just one of the many blessing that have and will be coming from my current journey. I love you all and just want to say such a big thank you to everyone

Hi Amanda, I would love to do a LuLaRoe online fundraiser sale for Vanessa, if you all are interested and it's needed. I donate a portion of each sale item and when that amount reaches $100, LLR will match my donation. Let me know if you all are interested. I have to get approval from LLR first.
