From the horse's mouth

Hey there friends, E here! I had to get on here and give a great big THANK YOU to all who have donated to the nanny fund. It's been humbling to see people gather around us and help us where we need help. I am grateful to you. Thanks to those who have called, texted, sent cards, flowers, packages, gift cards, emails, offered time etc. Steve and I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, care and concern on our behalf.

Monday morning at 8 I will start chemo. Then again Tuesday. Then again the following Monday. Then a break until day 21 when we start it all up again. I'm nervous but have moved into a hopeful attitude. Hopeful that God is going to rid my body of cancer once and for all. Hopeful that He is taking care of us in the midst. Hopeful that He is up to something GREAT, even if the circumstances are not.

Thanks for being on this journey with us. If you need help navigating anything on this website, please leave a comment and Susie will get back with you and help you out.

Once again, THANK YOU.

Thank You!

It's Susie again. I just wanted to say thank you to all who have given so generously to the Koproski family through this site, personal gifts, and through yesterday's gimmE five campaign, launched by the following ladies:

Emily Berry & Jenny Rapson, Mommin' It Up
Susie Thomas, Here Only
Andrea Deckard, Savings Lifestyle
Cortney Loyd, Evan Has Landed
Becky Dell, Random Becky
Maria Woodall, the BMC Report
Tricia Callahan, Once a Month Mom
Celia Emmons, WestAnaWillGo

As most of you know, E's surgery to get her ports is today and chemo starts Monday. Please keep praying! For anyone who has wanted to offer help and can't figure out the calendar (yes, it is annoying), feel free to leave comments here and I will try to organize them into a helpful list for Steve & E. 

This is where the going gets rough(er). Speaking with E yesterday, I learned that the "effects" of chemo are cumulative, so it might start out not-so-bad, but following cycles will probably get worse. So.... keep praying. And Olivia's birthday is Saturday, so let's pray for a really sweet day for the Koproskis, and especially for Olivia. 

Thanks, friends.

Financial Donations

Hey all, Susie here. In response to E's great idea to get some childcare help as she enters into this unpredictable (but probably not fun) chemo phase, we've added a donation button over to the right. Anyone interested can contribute any amount to a fund that will go directly to Steve & E.

Thanks, you guys are the best!

A thought to bounce off of you

hey guys, it's e. I'm busting on here. Here's something a friend brought up to me and Steve and I need to pray about this.. but I think it's worth considering.

We might look into getting a nanny from 9-4 Mon-Fri. So that I don't have to run around and do stuff like get milk etc. She could pick O up from school, put the kids down for naps, get lunch etc.

I don't know if people who want to help would want to pitch in to help us pay for one.

Also, I would love a reference of a young, fun, Christian girl who could help. I would feel more free to really use her if I knew she was getting paid.

Feedback welcome. Am I crazy? Is it feasible? Do you know anyone?
