Support the Ensinger Family

Campaign Created by: Rebekah Ensinger

The funds from this campaign will be received by William Ensinger.

Goal: USD $100,000
Raised: USD $ 102,151
We are the Ensingers, Bill, Becky, and our 8 children, Laura age 13, Elizabeth 11, Gabriel 10, Gideon 8, Phoebe 6, Naomi 4, Andrew 2, and baby Julia 7 months.

We are a Christian family from Dayton , Tennessee, homeschoolers who live simply on our farm and make and sell goat milk soaps.

On September 26th, 2023, we were absolutely blindsided to find out that Becky had stage 4 small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma. Her oncologist has given her a very poor prognosis, as little as three weeks without treatment, perhaps a year with chemotherapy.

We have been researching extensively and have decided to take her to the Brio Medical Clinic in Scottsdale Arizona. They offer an extensive 7 week integrated cancer treatment program that has seen excellent results.

In addition to this Bill is unable to work during this time while caring for Becky so we have very limited income.

We know God is the Great Physician and we trust him with the outcome.

This is where we need you. We humbly ask our friends and family to consider donating to cover expenses for this trip, for treatments, and aftercare, as well as cost of living and caring for the whole family. The cost is considerable but we believe it has the best chance to save her life.

We don’t want our eight children to grow up without their mama.

Progress report:  Our entire family arrived in Scottsdale Arizona on Sunday October 10th. We are settling in fairly well although a little homesick. Becky has started daily treatments at the clinic. She’s experiencing a number of side effects but we are very thankful to be here and working hard to fight the cancer.

It’s an adjustment for all of us to have mom away all day.

We are so grateful for all who have given, prayed, shared, and helped our family in so many ways. Please continue to keep us in your prayers for healing and for our family as we adjust to this new routine.

Whether you can give or not, please share this with your friends, and please be in prayer for us. Prayers are appreciated for healing, comfort, wisdom, and guidance. May Gods will be done.

We have now been in Arizona for several weeks. The family is settling in well and adjusting to the time change and the change of climate. It's been hot most days and rarely a cloud, but evenings and mornings are cool, and we often go for walks during these times. We are connecting well with local families and churches and have been able to enjoy some fun activities as a family.

Also, Becky's treatments are underway. We are very impressed with the thoroughness and caring nature of the doctors and nurses here. They really focus on Becky's specific medical, physical, and spiritual needs. They have taylored her treatments to best treat the cancer as well as minimize side effects.

It appears as though she is making progress in terms of many of the things regularly tested for in blood tests.

During one of her tests, it was determined that she has breast cancer. This means she may have 2 types of cancer, or breast cancer with a neuroendocrine component. This affects her treatment options, so it is a good thing to know in order to provide her with the most effective treatment.

As part of possible treatment options, we have been told we may need or at least benefit from staying here in Arizona and continuing treatment for about an extra month. We have also been told we may benefit from going to Mexico for a procedure by a specialist located there.

As a result, we continue to covet your prayers and still need support. We thank each and every one of you for your outpouring of support so far, and we don't take that lightly. We're making every effort to keep costs down and hope we don't incur large additional costs. We can't predict the future but there is a good likelyhood we will need more support.

There are a number of ways you can help. If you are able, you can continue to contribute to this fundraising page, and share the link with anyone you think would like to hear.

We have also set up a meal train, which you can contribute to even from far away by ordering through a food service. The link for this is:

We have set up a caring bridge web site, which we update with Becky's progress more frequently than here. The link is:

We also have an amazon wish list, where you can help purchase needed items. The link is here:

If you're local or happen to be passing through the area, we'd love to see you! Just send us a message and we can set up a place and time.

Again, thank you to all who have contributed financially, with prayers, with gifts, with meals, acts of service, and in any other way. It is much appreciated!
