The Family of Mary Martin are coming together to raise money for Mary's medical and travel expenses! Please consider donating! :)

Mary Martin was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Grade leiomyosarcoma in June, 2012. Like many women, Mary has spent most of her life being a stay at home mother, and then grandmother, and wife to a wonderful Church Pastor of 20+ years, Ken. He has worked hard on the railroad to support his family and make sure they have everything they need, but he has ALWAYS given to others in need! They are a very loving, giving family whom has often given to anyone in need. They have 4 children and 7 grandchildren.

Unfortunately, with this type of cancer, the diagnosis was not exactly what we wanted to hear. Mary is being treated at Ohio State University in Columbus Ohio, and MD Anderson in Houston Texas. This is not a cheap route of treatment, but we all want the best option for our family, right? The focus is quantity and quality of life at this point, but Mary believes 100% in her heart that God is working on her healing as we speak! We know that her cancer may be "medically" inoperable and incurable, but with God, ALL things are possible! We covet your prayers, most of all. However, the financial need is also great at this point. Ken has worked very hard so Mary could stay home and raise her children, but that didn't leave much for savings.

With that said, please consider helping a family that has never hesitated to help others. Most of the time, they gave when they didn't have to give. I recently did a fundraiser for a 2 year old boy that passed away with Neuroblastoma, and Mary was the VERY first order on that fundraiser. Never a hesitation with them to help others! We never thought when we were trying to help that family, that she would be the next fundraiser on our list. Please, consider giving, if even $1.00! We thank you, so much, in advance!
