The Widrick Family embodies the very definition of self-sacrifice and service to others. John Widrick, a youth pastor at Calvary’s Love, has dedicated his life to serving and ministering to local youth in the community, and his wife, Rachel, is a labor and delivery nurse at Wilson Memorial Hospital. Rachel has cared for countless patients through her many years as an RN and her warm personality and kindness put her patients and everyone around her at ease. In addition, John and Rachel have 3 young children that they are raising. 

In the past month, this family has encountered a hurdle they would have never anticipated. Their youngest son, Judah, began experiencing eye swelling, which was initially believed to be an infection. When all treatments yielded no improvement, they were sent to a specialist in Syracuse. After many tests, Judah was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder that has caused a large tumor around his eye socket. While the prognosis is good, the treatment plan will be long and strenuous. Judah will need to have chemotherapy every week in Syracuse, which is a two hour drive for the Widricks. These treatments will be ongoing for at least a year.

Because Rachel works in a per diem role at her current job, she has no paid time off or paid leave. Judah is in a great deal of pain from the tumor and has needed his mom most hours of the night and day for comfort. This has severely limited the amount of hours Rachel is able to work. All of this, coupled with travel expenses and medical bills, has caused an obvious financial strain on this young family. 

Please consider giving to support the Widricks through this difficult time. No amount is too small and it will surely go a long way and be a blessing to them!

God already knows..This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that He hears us- whatever we ask- we know that we have what we asked of him. 1 John 5:14-15. We love you! E&V

Update #2
August 30, 2019, 3:23 pm

Hey, everyone! I am excited for this update because it’s a darn good one!

Judah had an MRI this past Tuesday to assess the tumor’s response to the chemo. There was no tumor to be found!! This is incredible, amazing news! This means that Judah will now only have to have chemo every three weeks, as opposed to every week. Also, he is also no longer required to take Prednisone (an oral steroid), which Rachel says has done wonders to improve his mood. Things are looking up! 

Rachel and John continue to ask me to pass along their gratitude for the massive amount of support they have felt from each and every one of you! If you can, please take a minute to share this update so we can continue to raise money to offset Judah’s medical expenses. Also, please continue to lift them up in your prayers because we have a mighty God who will surely answer them! ❤️

August 6, 2019, 1:15 pm

Hello, everyone! On behalf of the Widricks, I wanted to take a minute to thank all of you have supported them through this difficult journey, financially or otherwise. They have definitely felt the love and prayers!

Judah continues to go Syracuse every week for chemotherapy treatments. The good news is that the tumor has shrunk significantly. However, Rachel says that it is still visible in Judah’s eye and that these treatments seem to be taking a lot out of the poor boy. He continues to not sleep hardly at all through the nights and that makes for exhausted parents. In a few weeks, Judah will have additional scans done, which will determine the appropriate course of action going forward.

Please continue to lift this family up! Also, please, please share this link so that we can continue to raise money and support for them. Thank you again, everyone!
