In June my oldest daughter, Marina Pimentel (Ramsay) was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma an aggressive but treatable form of cancer. Without going into detail her prognosis is good. She is young and strong and ready to take this on and kick its butt! But the way forward will still be difficult! She has begun her treatment which will involve six months of chemotherapy as well as other tests and associated medications. Since Marina and her husband Kent are still just starting out in life together their means of meeting the high costs of cancer treatment, even with insurance, is understandably quite limited. The purpose of this funding campaign is to raise funds to help Marina and Kent meet the financial challenges of defeating their foe so that they can concentrate on the physical, emotional and spiritual challenges that they are facing. As much as financial help we ask for your thoughts and prayers for Marina and our family. Those of you who know Marina well, know that Hodgkins has taken on a formidable foe indeed!
