Tommy and I were talking the other day about how God gives us intuition for a reason. Without discussing it with each other, we both had an intuition of what was going to happen when he went in for his tests. I have never felt God’s presence more than when the Dr said the word “cancer.”
After many Doctors visits (6 in three days to be exact) we were informed that Tommy has Stage 4 metastatic colon cancer, meaning they have found a tumor in his colon and another spot on his liver.
We are both staying positive and believing that this is God’s plan for us at the moment, we are believing that God gives us every trial as an opportunity to live out our faith. At the moment we are trying to keep life as normal as possible, we thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes and we will do our best to keep you updated as much as possible throughout this journey.
When an unexpected life event such as an illness occurs, so many people want to support the family.
Tommy & Brittany have received so many offers of help and they are so grateful! We’ve compiled a list of practical ways you can help & serve as a blessing to their family during this time.

While Tommy does have medical insurance, it has a very high deductible and his surgery/treatment will span two insurance cycles, meaning he will have to meet the deductible twice.
They will be faced with thousands of dollars in medical bills to cover scans, doctor visits, surgery, chemotherapy, and follow ups in the next 8 months.
Any financial donation you can make is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for being a blessing to their family!
It’s summer…which means the grass is growing! While Tommy is recovering from surgery, the Mitchells could use help with keeping their lawn mowed & yard work done.
If you’d like to help, click HERE to sign up for a week.
UPDATE: Mowing & Lawn Care has been taken care of through the end of August.
