Help us help a friend!

This is the Jackson Family. They are an amazing family, especially Amy! Like any mom, they are the back bone of the family. I was privilege to work with her in Young Women's at church. And to get to know her through the years. She always smiling, laughing and listening. She is always helping someone else out, especially the youth.

So many people have been touched by her in one way or another and we have all been devastated with the crushing news her family received just last week.

Amy has been diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. The doctors stopped counting the lesions on her brain at 33, even though there are more. She has a large tumor on her lungs (site of origin), her sacrum...it's everywhere. She hasn't been given very good odds of survival, but we're all praying and fasting for a miracle.

Originally Amy was told she only had a few weeks to live, the latest news is that with treatment she could possibly live up to six months. Hopefully after treatment her life expectancy will be even longer...miracles happen every day! Prayers and fasting would be much appreciated.

Now we, as a community, are hoping to raise money to help with the inevitable mountain of medical bills they will have as they fight for more time, and to allow them some funds to make some wonderful memories together with the time they do have.

Most of all...if you could spread the word to anyone in the surrounding areas so we can get a great turnout at the Fundraiser, here are the specifics:
