Wristbands and Other Help
In addition to the major help that many many many of you have already been, some have been asking about how to help in other ways. Let me first say that prayer and sharing the word about Rebekah so others can pray is 100x bigger than any other help you could provide.
Frances and I have been wearing some wristbands in support of Rebekah. They read "REACH THE DAY" and are from the www.curesearch.org website which is a wonderful source of knowledge and has been very important to us even in the short time we have been dealing with this. The words have double meaning; "THE DAY" is meant nationally to be the day that no child has to deal with cancer and for us personally (and for you if you would wear one) it also means the day that Rebekah becomes cancer free.
Our original pack of 10 wristbands for us and immediate family was provided to us by a wonderful, loving, long term friend back in Ohio named Suzanne - thank you Suzanne! If someone would like to order some more that we can pass them out to more local friends and family that want to help support, please let us know and we will try and organize that. If any of you would be willing to order some and pass them out to your families, churches, etc. that would be awesome too!
Finally, a few have been asking about money. I absolute hate having to think that we may actually need help in dealing with all of this but is becoming very clear that long-term this will be devastating. Frances and I are paying completely out of pocket for our medical insurance and that is covering 80% of her medical bills. That insurance is only available until October 1st. We are just now getting a realization (first bills rolling in) that the monthly insurance combined with the 20% is overwhelming. We want to make sure that things are done right and are meeting with an attorney who works in dealing with these kind things. Hopefully next week we will have an avenue for you to help, if you would like.
Again, thank you all for your continued prayers, thoughts and all the support that so many of you have provided.
