Making the dream of family a reality!

Update posted by Kristin Sparkman On Jan 14, 2014

Hello, Friends.

It s official.  I have had two second opinions for my condition, based upon all the tests I had perfomed in December, and all three doctors are in agreement-- hysterectomy is the best option.  This is mainly due to the location of the largest tumor- pressing against my bowel.  All the doctors agreed that the placement of this tumor and its size could lead to a deadly situation if it were to puncture my bowel.  This could lead to sepsis from waste spilling into my abdomen. 

When asking about the alternative hormone therapy, each one said the same thing-- hormone treatment is not the most aggressive treatment for this type of tumor. It's a slow reduction treatment and there is a 100% possibility of recurrance in the future.

Given the amount of pain that I am in, this is NOT AN OPTION. There comes a point when the sick come to the threshold of their own exsistance-- I am at that point. I cannot continue to live in pain, with severe anemia, extremely tired all the time, irritable and non-social...This is not who I am, but it is who I have become since dealing with all of this heartache and health uncertainty.

My surgery is set for February 21, 2014. Recovery period is 8 weeks. 

Your prayers and kind thoughts are ALWAYS welcomed!

Thank you for taking time to share in our struggles with us. We can't see who you are but the number of people who are taking the time to even read our story let's us know that you may be taking the time to pray for us as well. That, to us, means SO MUCH MORE!

We have gotten many questions about our exact goal for this fundsraiser and end date time frame.  Hopefully this update will help.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 by May 1, 2014.  We are also planning to save $5,000 ourselves by then, after paying for the surgery I am going to have in the beginning of the year.

We are sincerely humbled to already have had over 300 views to our profile in less than a week. We hope that our story of strength can encourage other families going through the same struggles. We hope to be able to give back to other families in need as a result of our success in the future.
