April’s world was turned upside down on Friday, May 19, 2019. While putting groceries into a shopping cart filled with three energetic kiddo’s, she learned that she had stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. On Sunday May 26, 2019 April and I shared her diagnosis with our Amissville Baptist Church family and her friends. Below you will find her breast-cancer timeline, links her latest updates, and ways to support her and her family. Thank you for your prayers and your concern!
