Kathy Tucker, Health Crisis

Tags : 

It’s interesting how a disease such as MS which at present is not curable can be a life changer for The Good! You are thinking. she nuts too? No I definitely am not. I am faithful & strong.

I was clinically diagnosed 13 years ago with relapsing remitting Multiple Sclerosis. I am not going to lie I knew before the doctors told me that this is what I had & to say it was tough to hear it would be an understatement. What I did find is a peace in learning how the medical research had come a long way from when my grandmother was diagnosed & living with it many years ago. I knew in order to go forward I had to do a few things. The first was faith in knowing I had this to be the strength for those who were not strong enough to move ahead in their lives. I knew I had to change myself in how I lived my every day life such as eating, sleeping, exercising & just my day to day stresses & mobility. Lastly but definitely the most important was to be Kathy. I am not MS I am a woman who has it & lives with it daily but it does not own/make me who I am.

I am blessed to have a superb support system in my family, friends & church.

The purpose here is to not give up! Ever! If I can help just one person whether they live with MS or any other disease or addiction then I know I have done what I was meant to do.

I had a stroke before I was born and was born with mental and physical problems; including Trencher-Collins Syndrome and my trachea and esophagus were intertwine so while being fed I would spit everything up. Therefore I had major surgery to make me fully functional so I would be able to eat normally.

That was May 14th 1965 at Abington Hospital, Abington PA.

My life started as a challenge and still continues to be one.

I came to the Lord when I was 18 years old in July of 1983 at The Davisville Baptist Church youth group.

After graduating high school I went to a rehabilitation center for some sort of trade which was Clerical/Business courses. This school was H.G.ANDREWS CENTER in JOHNSTOWN PA.

In Johnstown PA. was where I attended my first real Church called JOYFUL NOISE MINISTRIES.

The Church was an offshoot of The Christian Churches that became Pentecostal.

I was Baptized in The Holy Spirit December of 1984 and had a hunger for The Word of God.

I became a student of the Bible learning from The Holy Spirit and from various Churches and ministries.

After graduating I moved back home in 1987 and lived in Warminster PA.

Ever since I became a Christian I was always interested in Christian Music and started booking bands and soloists in 1990 and worked with alot of Churches, ministries and coffee houses.

In 1997 I took over a ministry called CHRISTIAN MUSIC NETWORK and initiated concert outreaches and worked with local music artists and bands.

I try everyday to live and to serve God. My favorite verses are:

KJV 1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

KJV Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Roxanne Roundtree, Houston TX

Tags : 

Roxanne Russell Roundtree was diagnosed with ALS-Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2008 at age 30. She is an active mother of 3 growing boys: Don (16), Brad (13), and Bryce (11). Before her disease took over, she was a home health nurse and traveled the Madisonville area caring for those who were not able to travel for health care. After her full time nursing job, she was also a full time mother. She was team mom, home keeper, and cook. Her boys are her everything. Although she is no longer able to move from the neck down or speak, she is still at every event her boys are a part of. Football games, band concerts, rodeos, jackpots, baseball, stock shows, etc., she does it all!

Her husband has dedicated his life to care for her 24/7. She wrote this cookbook over a period of two years using a computer that reads her eye movements. With this technology, she is able to write, text, email, speak, and use the internet to shop for birthday and Christmas gifts! This cookbook originally started as a Christmas gift in a 3 brad folder to her mother and sisters. Then it was sold as a fundraiser to help her middle child, Brad, pay his way to the Junior High State Rodeo Finals in Gonzales in June of 2013. He qualified in team roping and chute dogging.

During that particular fundraiser, her story caught the attention of various people including roping great, Joe Beaver who sponsored Brad, companies like Holiday Inn Express-Gonzales, Texas, who donated a handicap accessible room for the family to stay in for the duration of the finals week and RFD-TV, who filmed a special that will air June 24! The funds from the sale of the cookbook will contribute to the Roundtree family to cover living and medical expenses, as well as, helping pay for their handicap accessible home. Their home was built due to the generosity of Roxanne’s parents. Through the hard economic times that have affected us all, Roxanne’s parents are now in need of help to continue paying for Roxanne’s home. A web page has been created using Go Fund Me for those who wish to donate to that specific cause.
