Two dear friends of mine, Steve and April Bohannon, have had more than their share of challenges, struggles, and fears. For the past decade, April has had recurring bouts with brain cancer (see her brief story below).

Beyond the worries that accompany such trials, the financial strain of medical costs have been oppressive. April has not been able to work in nearly two years. Steve, a seminary graduate, works several part-time jobs. I am sure many of you can relate to the stress the Bohannons are experiencing.

I am providing here a link to the Bohannon’s fundraising site sponsored by Please consider helping my friends reach their goal to sustain them over the next few months as they work to find a better long-term solution. I believe this is an opportunity to share in their sufferings as you also share in their consolation (2 Cor. 1:7).

As most of you know, since 2003 I’ve been fighting brain cancer. Ever since 2009, I have had four occurrences, all of which I have beaten. I was just diagnosed with another occurrence last week, which means that I will be continuing on treatments in the upcoming months. My insurance is currently through COBRA, which is a major financial strain on my husband and I. We have received help from friends and our church to get through this past year’s payments, but we are hoping to raise funds to get through the upcoming months, until September, even as we both continue to seek out another avenue for insurance. In the meantime, would you consider helping us cover the cost of insurance payments and medical treatments through September? Thanks to so many of you who have helped us get through these past years and to those who will continue helping in the future.

Thank you!

Steve and April
