Tori, from Smeared and Smudged, came up with a great idea to have a fundraiser for her. Tori sells Scentsy products, and thought that it would be a wonderful way to raise money for Betty and Christian. I recently became a Pampered Chef consultant, and decided to follow Tori’s lead. So, I am hosting a fundraiser in Betty’s name to try to get some money raised to cover some of their ever-growing expenses.

Christian was first diagnosed with Stage 1 throat cancer October of 2011, he was 17 at the moment. In a panic not having insurance I had a special digi set to help us get through his first surgery. We were told that luckily it is stage 1 very early but cancer none the less. Radiation would be administered five days a week for 15 weeks... every week was a trial. We have to travel off the mountain we live on to get to his therapy. Gas alone was a small fortune as you can imagine. My daughter had to be put on homeschool because I had to go down with Christian and couldn't leave her up here alone while I was down the mountain. It was one heck of a journey. 15 weeks passed and Christian needed more therapy. It wasn't over. Here we are well passed the 15 weeks, the extra therapy and unfortunately again a 2 month therapy schedule. Luckily it's only 2 times a week this time around whew! It's still loads of stress on me, but I do it with out a second thought for my kid. He's a great kid, a teen, but still a great kid. He's had to "fail" his senior year and not graduate with his class because he missed sooo much school, but that just means he's home for another year with me before leaving for college and the real world. He's always goofing around, but with the therapy he was so tired and sad all the time and now he's back to being stressed. But he is a great kid... I know we will get through it and he will be a wonderful adult and put all this behind him one day.
