Dear Family and Facebook Friends, it is with a heavy heart that we ask for your financial support in this very difficult time. Our sister Carmen is losing her battle with Cancer, and while she is still with us difficult preparation must be made.

Carmens painful journey and the first of many surgeries began in 1997 at the age of 26 when she was diagnosed with familial colorectal polyposis. The outcome of this surgery was life changing, "God has a plan for me, I'm not scared" is what she said, she was trying to comfort "US" her family, here she is going through things no 26 year old should ever have to endure and her first concern was to comfort us. 

Carmen has always been one to give, her needs always came last, in her eyes her needs no matter how big or small were not as importaint as ours. She lived a life that revolved around the needs of others, she never question WHY? she simply said ok.

Through her illnesses, pains and discomfort she helped our Mom care for our Dad who was in home hospice care, her prayers were simple "God, please take away SOME of the pain, not all, just enough to help with dad" her prayers were answered, she helped care for our Dad until he passed in May of 2011. 

In Nov of 2011 we were given the devastating news that she had rectal cancer. Carmen, being the fighter that she is and her strong love and faith for our lord told us yet again "God is in controll, he knows why things happen, I will beat this, don't worry about me" again she was being strong for us. In June of 2012 she had a major surgery to remove one of two tumors, the complications of that surgery resulted in the loss of a kidney in Aug 2013.  Although she is very strong, and has an immeasurable amount of faith and an enormous desire to live, her body is not able to continue the fight.  Our Beautiful sister lies in a hospice bed at the young age of 42. Cancer is taking her from us much to soon, Cancer has progressed rapidly through her frail body and has cheated us from a final conversation with her. Her joyful spirit and smile we can no longer see, Her loud laugh and voice we can no longer hear, Her eyes are hidden in defeat, Her LOVE still beats in her strong heart.  Our sister is still fighting for her family, her friends and her strong desire to live.

Lord we thank you for allowing us to know and love this beautiful person, we thank you Lord for all of the love and support that has walked in and out of the hospice house this week. Lord look at Carmen with eyes of mercy. May your healing hand rest upon her. May your life giving powers flow into every cell of her body and into the depths of her soul, cleansing it, purifying it, restoring her to wholeness and strength for service in your Kingdom.  Amen.

Any donation will be Greatly appreaciated,

Thank You in Advance The Yep Family.
