The Results

Today we received the results of the biopsy.  Unfortunately, I have breast cancer.  To say the least, our family is sad and in shock.  I’ve talked to so many family members and friends this evening, that I am at a loss for words to write here.  I know the days ahead are long and may even be rocky.  But I have THE BEST family anyone could ask for.  I am humbled by their honesty, openness and strength.

We will continue to document our journey here.

Thanks again for all your love, support and kind words.

Praying and Believing!

    I never wanted or thought I would walk this road with one of my children. But here I am and I don’t know what to say but “I am here waiting for your wants and needs from me”. I pray and cry and cry and pray. I walk the floors I bake I clean and then I don’t know what time of day or day it is anymore. But I am here for you. Just call and tell me what it is you need or just to cry. I am here as always. I love you more than you can imagine. But I know you do know that love as you have your own children my gkids now. Words are not enough. I love you.

    You’ll never leave our thoughts and prayers. We are continually praying that God’s mighty hand will be seen as you fight this disease. No matter what the future holds, you family and friends in the faith will continue to lift you up and be there for you. We love you.

    Hey dearest Rick & Stephanie,
    Just heard from your sweet sister Michelle about what is going on. I’ve read much of your blog and have cried with you…if only I had some chili to make the moment complete;)
    I just want you to know James and I will be praying. I will share with other praying people as well. Maybe you need to come to Florida on vacation for healing;) you can always stay at our house!!
    We will be declaring this Word over you… Psalm 34:19 many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all! Love you!!

    Stephanie and family,
    I’ve known your parents Kaye and Pete for many years and remember you and Michelle. My daughter Kelly Hilton you might remember. We are both going to be praying for your family and I asked the intercessors at my church to pray for you.One of the older ladies says people call us the Big Guns because we all pray faithfully and we see lots of miracles. We believe God’s Word and will be praying in faith believing for a miracle of healing for you.
    My father has breast cancer and all I can say is prayer works. God has done some amazing things in our experience. Im planning to send your mom a picture faith scrapbook I made when I first learned of his cancer. I know she will share it with you. Hope you can rest in all the love and prayers coming your way. Robin

    Stephanie, my prayers are with you now and throughout the journey that lies ahead. Although I have never met you, I know your parents from school. I went from elementary school through high school with your Mom. (She is one terrific lady!) I know your Dad from high school. What wonderful parents you have. I will be thinking about you, praying for you and your family and following your progress. All of my love goes out to you and your wonderful family. God Bless You my dear!

    Stephanie- I just want you to know that I am praying constantly for you and your family. You have been in my thoughts and prayers ever since I heard about your cancer. Please know that through all the good and the bad ahead, you will ALWAYS have an amazing family but most importantly, and amazing father Jesus who will help you through. The power of prayer can do the most unbelievable things. I have known Michelle literally my whole lfe, as we go back to the maternity floor with your mom and mine together- so I can not imagine what you are all going through. Please keep us posted and I will continue to pray pray pray!!!!
