This Story Breaks my Heart!!

A few months ago I shared a story of a family that we rodeo with. At the time that I wrote that post Brett the husband/dad had been in a very bad lawn mower accident, to read that post go here. Brett has been recovering and undergoing multiple different surgeries and physical therapy's, he has really been working hard to get as back to normal as he can. His road has been long and tough and it will continue to be that way for a while. So whilst they have been trying to move on with their lives they have had another HUGE life changing event...

On September 10, 2009 Karody who is the wife/mother of the Robbins family was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma of the right breast grade 2. She has had some positive things to her type of cancer such as she tested ER/PR Positive and the HER2/neu was good (not over expressive which would be a bad thing). The ER/PR positives are good because that means she will be able to receive hormonal therapy. So her current plan of action is 5 months of chemo followed by bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction and possible radiation. Karody is hoping and praying for no radiation. She is a vibrant young woman who has 2 small children. She is a barrel racer and loves riding!! She is also hoping and praying that she will be able to attend the rodeo circuit that our kids do together as it is a very big part of their lives..

So friends I ask today that you would please add this family to your prayer list. If you happen to have a prayer ring or prayer group at church please, please add the Robbins family! I can not imagine how stressed and exhausted they must be feeling.. When I talked with Karody about everything she expressed that she is focusing on getting better and being there for her family and I asked her if there was anything I could possibly do for them and she said just prayers please.


  1. Absolutely will.

    Please add my friend Shere to yours. She is having massive dental surgery today.

  2. Will pray for this family...wow.
    Satan is really on the move...as the body of believers, we must stand up to him!

  3. What major hurdles for this family to cross. I will pray for them.

  4. I will pray for this family also.
    Thanks for sharing such a sad story.

  5. OH my, will definitely be praying for them. Sounds like this family is under a lot of attack. Will be praying for the Good Lord's will here.

    By the way -- TAG YOU'RE IT!! I tagged you for an award. :)

  6. We will be praying for them!!

  7. This breaks my heart too. I will keep them in my prayers.

  8. Thank you friends!! Karody posted today that Brett is having a horrible time, he has just been discharged from the hospital from one of his many surgeries but the pain level is something hopefully none of us will ever know...And Karody has been with him at the hospital and did not sleep a wink and is having her chemo treatment today...
