It’s with such a heavy heart that I share this post. Our blogging friend Emily, the gorgeous red-head from The Freckled Fox is going through something unimaginable. She has five little ones under the age of six and her husband Martin was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma cancer last year. He has put up an amazing fight and together they have tried everything they can to beat it. Unfortunately the cancer has just been too aggressive and they’re preparing to say goodbye to their sweet dad.
Quote from Emily…
“I could feel my heart getting heavier with every word of her explanation. Then she took a deep breath and said those words so apologetically, “I mean we’re talking a few weeks here, maybe.” I can’t even explain what that felt like. All I know is that I was holding his warm hand, and I saw our five little babies in my mind, and I knew that no matter what happened to Marty that we would all be together. That our family was forever, and that everything would be OK, no matter what.”
If you have a moment, please keep the Meyers in your prayers. You can read their story on her blog at The Freckled Fox or on instagram @thefreckledfox. If you have the means, please consider donating to her fundraiser to help with medical expenses. You can find that here, every penny counts. I think most of all, just be inspired by her story. Let it motivate you to cherish your relationships, to hug those you love just a little tighter and to be grateful for all your beautiful blessings. Their story has the ability to change lives, to bring people closer to Christ and to heal broken spirits. This life is not the end, and there is a beautiful plan in place for each of us. If you can, please spread their story of faith on your blog, instagram, personal facebook page or share it with your family and friends.
We are praying for you and your family Emily.
