My name is Helen and I am a mother of four children and friend to many from church, homeschool co-op, and others I meet. I have been diagnosed with stage II Lung cancer metastasizing to my bones. I am approaching this diagnosis ready to fight but with a holistic approach. I want to care for my whole body while being treated for cancer. For that, we have chosen to attend a facility in California and Arizona that has an integrative, holistic approach to treating cancer while supporting the rest of the body. Unfortunately, insurance does not cover all of these expenses. I am asking for support to pay for the treatments not covered, lodging.

It’s going to take all the emotional, financial, and physical strength we can muster to slow the growth and ultimately stop whatever is causing the cancer from growing in the first place.
Last week, I started second line chemo treatment which will be more intensive and require more frequent travel.
This week, I will also be starting alternative therapies that are specifically targeted to help knock out esophageal cancer & come at this from a whole body healing approach. Unfortunately, none of the extensive tests or therapies are covered by insurance.
It isn’t easy to ask for help, but cancer has a way of doing just that. Knowing what it will take to get rid of this once and for all, I am humbling asking for your support.
Onward we go—if it were easy to beat—it wouldn’t be cancer.”

Your donation supports my healing journey with my family – it also keeps me around for our ongoing and future brilliant creative collaborations. I am going to need some extra love and financial help; there is no easy way to ask. Every little bit will be greatly appreciated and will help tremendously. Since we are scrambling to navigate these rough waters and time is of the essence, we felt the need to get donation links set up quickly.

With your help, I’m looking forward to a bright and healthy future. From the bottom of our hearts, my family and I thank you for your kindness and generosity.
