Our Purpose & Vision

James 4:8
“If we draw near to God,
He will draw near to us.”

This ministry puts this scripture to use by allowing members of this outreach team to demonstrate their compassion for one another, and God’s Word ...

This support group is created to help those battling serious illnesses and provide their families with valuable resources that can aid them as they fight this battle together.

I have travelled this road and have had the support of family and friends, but they couldn’t feel what I was going through.  I spent many hours and days praying.  My strength and my healing came from the Lord as I pray yours will as well!  Come and join us as we share how God has worked in our lives as we are living testimonies of His healing power and deliverance from cancer and other serious illnesses that doctors have given no hope.  We are here to help you and provide you with HOPE as you venture through this journey.

It is our prayer and mission to offer you our support and encouragement and ultimately give you “HOPE” to face the future through Jesus Christ, our healer!

When a person receives a cancer diagnosis, it affects every aspect of their being—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. 

The Bible is the Source
Cancer can make a person feel like they have been abandoned by God.  The predictability of life is often crushed and you wonder where you will get the strength to go on.  The Bible reminds us that if we “draw near to God, He will draw near to us.” (James 4:8). There is no better source of hope and encouragement than the Bible.

Prayer Support
People who are coping with the same problems and issues truly understand how cancer can change a life forever.  Loyal friendships begin when people genuinely care about the journey you are on, know of your challenges, and want to support you along the way.

Support Materials
We want to provide recommended resources from such places as the American Cancer Society, health-care professionals, and individuals who work with cancer patients. 

These materials are meant to provide practical guidance, both spiritual and physical, for cancer patients and their families.
