Although we may not know each other personally, we have a very special person
in common, Arlene Carter. My name is Hope Ellison, and I am a close family
friend to Tracey Carter Nicolai, Arlene Carter’s daughter.
As you all know, this is a very tough time for Arlene who
was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma back in November.
Arlene is a devoted
wife, mother, grandmother, and member of her church, who now is in a fight for
her life undergoing traditional treatment such as chemo, but she also has the
opportunity to receive a stem cell transplant. This treatment will
prayerfully result in a miracle.
you may want to help the family, but don’t know how; and having just lost my
mom to cancer, I know how devastating and overwhelming this diagnosis is as it infects
the whole family, and so that is why I put this site together. Her husband,
Matt, is doing all he can, as are their daughters’, Tracey and Stefanie.
fighting the overwhelming visits to the doctors, the treatment, the travel, the
fatigue, and the exhaustion physically, emotionally and mentally, they are at
the same time being bombarded with many financial obstacles in regards to the
medical treatments. It is a lot to take in, as you can only
imagine. I know they would appreciate your help! Every day we are
faced with someone in need and we all want to help our fellow man, but this
time, we have the rare opportunity to give to the one we love directly.
We can help her out now and make a difference Now! Please help Arlene and
her devoted husband Matt minimize the costs by making a donation to this
wonderful woman. Please keep her and Matt in your prayers as they go through
this process as Arlene’s receives this medical treatment which may be an
answered prayer and a miracle for her Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
