My mother-in-law Christe Jenkins, is an incredible mother of three, and a grandmother to six grandbabies. Christe has worked hard her entire life, always putting everyone else’s needs before her own. It only seemed natural that she became a nurse 17 years ago at United Regional Health Care System in Wichita Falls, TX. Christe’s fun-spirited and caring nature has brought so much joy and laughter to her patients. She is so giving and caring to her patients that one morning after a 12 hour graveyard shift at the hospital she saw a woman standing outside the hospital without any shoes on. She graciously took off her tennis shoes and gave her shoes to this women. That is just one example of the type of women she is.  My mother in law is the type of person that NEVER complains no matter how bad she feels or how much pain she is in. This past Spring my mother in law Christe was in dire pain and the doctors could not figure out what was wrong at first. After the doctor conducted a long awaited MRI the results were devastating. She found out that she had stage 4 blood cancer called Multiple Myeloma. Myeloma is a cancer that targets the plasma cells in blood which weakens your bones. She also learned that she has tumors in her lung, liver, bones, and spine. Her cancer is so advanced that her doctors will not operate or offer radiation. Christe is going to chemotherapy every three weeks and is unable to work. Unfortunately, this makes paying her mortgage, water, power, groceries, and everyday necessities very difficult for her to mange alone. We need all the help we can get for my amazing hardworking mother in law. Any donation is greatly appreciated in helping pay for Christe’s medicines, treatment, and daily living expenses.No donation is too small every little bit is greatly appreciated God Bless!!
