In April of 2011, my husband, Ron and I got the news that his melanoma had metastasized. We were heartbroken, overwhelmed and feeling lost.
Then we came home to Pemberton. News gets around quickly in a small town and this time was no exception. The love we have felt, and keep feeling has been phenomenal. We have been supported financially, spiritually, and emotionally.
There have been anonymous donations through the mail and through our pastor. There have been many, many meals dropped off, gas cards given for the many trips to the city, supermarket gift cards to pay for months of food, prayers offered — the list goes on and on. We have received so much and feel very humble in the midst of this outpouring of love.
I am writing now to apologize for taking so long to say a public “Thank You!” You all have been used by God to help us through this journey. Ron continues his fight. His cancer is not willing to admit defeat at this point. We are not sure what the future holds (it may include trips to Edmonton for a clinical trial, or possibly chemotherapy), but we are blessed to know the One (God) Who holds our future in His hands.
Thank you so much,
Ron, Lisa, Tatiana and Arabella Fogarty
