Hi, my name is Camille. I feel very privileged to post on here and to rally all of us around Emily and her family at this time. A series of events have moved my family and Emily’s family from neighbors to close friends. The Meyers are an incredible family full of love for each other and they exude that love for all those that they come in contact with.
My first experience with Emily was last year, I had moved into my first home, 4 hours away from any family and I had a 2-week-old baby. She invited me over and while we chatted our kids played in the sunshine and I caught a glimpse of how talented and big-hearted she is. A few weeks later our car battery died and we called Martin to come help us jump it, days later Martin showed up with a box full of potatoes for us (just because they had some extras and wanted to share). We were able to spend time doing fun things last summer and getting to know each other. We have been blessed by the wonderful people they are. We have seen their love for God and for each other. They are people that are always trying to do the right thing and help their family grow in the process.Almost a month ago Emily and I were driving together as she told me that Martin had some tests done for this random growth under his arm. We talked about the scary things it could be and then rested on the hope that it was nothing and it would all be okay. Later that week she called me with the news that devastated her family and all those that know them. The tests had come back with all indicators for Melanoma. My heart was heavy as I thought of their four children and her cute pregnant belly and the wonderful husband and father that Martin is for them, I couldn't stop the tears from flowing. That night my husband and I got a sitter and spent time at their home talking with, praying with and offering to support any way we could. With the focus of his health and getting answers they headed to a week full of tests and many appointments with no reservation when it came to finances. When they returned home they had an army of people ready to help; the support and love have flowed in. As they have gone through this trial and the various emotions that accompany it, one thing has become glaringly obvious: God knows them, loves them and has a plan specific for them.
While we cannot all be there physically, there are other ways we can help. Many of the costs for tests that they have done and the treatments that they are hoping to do are a financial burden that they do not have to face alone. I am confident that we could raise over $100,000 for them to be able to afford the treatments, and to pay the current medical bills they already have. Together we can raise these funds that the Meyers family desperately needs right now. If everyone that read this donated $1, and then shared this cause with a friend, we could easily send them to do treatments that fill them with hope for the future that they have together.
Please help the Freckled-Fox, Martin and their family while they are on this present journey. We have set up a PayPal account under this email: FreckledFoxFund@gmail.com - when you donate chose option: friends or family.
Thanks so much!
