It Takes an Army

If you read my blog, I'm sure that you know my friend Meri who blogs at Our Diabetic Life.  She is a beautiful person, with a beautiful family, fighting her husband's cancer with everything they have.  Please read her update below and consider joining us in prayer this Sunday.  We need an army!
Dear Friends,

We received the news last week that our most recent brain scan shows a new army of tumors.   Ryan no longer qualifies for radiation, or any trials.   We will begin our last med option tomorrow morning.   Urvoy is a medication given once every three weeks for 12 weeks.   The medicine works on a small number of patients and takes a good 5 to 6 weeks to make any improvement.   As things are progressing fast and furious, that is a very scary timeframe for us.   Despite the odds, Ryan remains convinced that he will be ok.   More than ever we need your prayers, as Ryan's body is so very weak right now.   Our family is setting aside this Sunday as a day of prayer and fasting on Ryan's behalf.   If you feel as though you would like to join us, we would sincerely appreciate each and every prayer offered.   Thank you so much for all the good thoughts, love and prayers you have directed towards our family.   It is now time to ramp up our prayers again.   An army of believers has to be stronger than cancer.   It just has to be.    
Much love ~Meri

With this update from Meri, we (the SFM Admin) have decided to begin raising funds once again for this family.  Please don't feel obligated, but if you can, please donate to the Schuhmacher family to help with continuing medical expenses.  Any amount is appreciated.  We have the goal set at $15,000 and a 2 week timeline.  This will allow the money to get to Meri and Ryan as quickly as possible.

Continuing prayers are also VERY much appreciated.

Here is the link to donate if you can, and please feel free to share with your friends and family:

Thank you ♥
