The family & friends of Carmen Weldon ask you to unite with us and raise funds to assist with her Medical Expenses not covered by insurance.

We Know God is greater…

The look on the Dr’s face told the story about to unfold before a word was uttered. The diagnosis was positive, the lump in the breast was indeed cancer. Not the words anyone wants to hear coming out of their Dr’s mouth. But there they were... it had just become a reality.

But those who know Carmen also know that she is a woman of faith. So even though no one would ever want to hear those words, she has stayed in an attitude of peace and trust throughout the last several months as she consulted with 2 MD’s, 2 Oncologists, and Cancer Specialists. The initial Oncologist advised her that chemo would not be effective in her case, and there were many conflicting details. She followed the protocols given to her hoping that the tumor would shrink and not spread. Although initially the protocols appeared to be working, almost suddenly things begin to take a turn. She began to feel additional lumps and the cancer had begun to spread in a matter of weeks.

Then in a matter of what seemed like days her strength began to lessen, nausea begin to set in, the pain increased and sleep was scarce. All of which spiraled together to bring her to a crisis situation in which emergency treatment had to be sought that offered the best opportunity for successful treatment and recovery.

To add to the obvious stress of the situation was the news that the Insurance HMO would not cover the treatments… because where they are provided is considered to be “Out of Network”.

So many of us who love Carmen have united together to help lighten the load of this crisis, by helping raise funds for the medical treatments and expenses that are not covered by insurance. Anything you, your church, your school, or organization can do would be so greatly appreciated.

Regardless of whether or not you are able to give, the one and most important thing you can do is pray… so we are asking everyone who believes that God answers prayer to lift Carmen up and support her in that way.

Because we know God is greater.
