Healing Dad of Prostate Cancer

Campaign Created by: Sarah Johnson

The funds from this campaign will be received by Sarah Johnson.

Goal : USD $50,000
Raised : USD $15,520

My wonderful father, Kevin Carter, is battling stage 4 prostate cancer. The cancer has progressed quickly and has spread outside of the prostate. We are asking for everyone's prayers for God's miraculous healing, as well as help covering the very expensive costs associated with his cancer treatments. My parents do not have insurance and are looking at some pretty big costs moving forward, but we know God will make a way.


If you know my Dad, you know how giving he is, how much he likes to have long chats (usually about God or hunting), and that he loves to joke around and have a good time. He has dedicated his life in service to God and His people. He spent most of his life as a minister, moving around to where leadership was needed and was ordained as a Reverend in 2018. He's always been an amazing Dad who works hard and provides for his family, no matter what it takes. He's now such a fun and wonderful Grandpa to his 6 grandbabies.


Dad will be the first to tell you he has a lot of life left to live, at 68 years young. He is not giving up and believes that God can and will heal him because of what Jesus Christ already accomplished for him on the cross. We are doing our best to seek out the right medical care for Dad, while praying and believing that God will lead him to full health and deliverance.


1 Peter 2:24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree; so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.

Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.


Above all, we're asking for prayers. We know they make a difference. We know we serve a good and powerful God who's will is healing for His children. If you are able to help lift the finanical burden in any way, we are so appreciative. Or even if you can share this post to spread the word, that is so helpful as well.


You can also give directly to Mom's paypal if you'd like at paypal.me/melodyanncarter12


God has come through for our family in so many ways over the last few years and we know He will do it again! The victory is ours in Jesus' name.


Thank you for any and all support!



UPDATES

Update from Mom on Kevin Carter
June 8, 2022

To all of you who have contributed to HEALING KEVIN CARTER either financially or with your powerful prayers.... I wanted to update you as to where we are at this time on June 7, 2022.  This is Melody Carter writing this message.

Your contribution has been appreciated more than I can express in words.  Anyone who has gone through a health journey like this knows it is consuming for both the person going through the challenge as well as the caregiver.  So, though I may not be able to write to each of you individually - I wanted to thank you here so I don't miss anyone.  I am grateful beyond words.  Kevin is doing so much better right now that I am encouraged that we will win this battle... (I didn't always feel this way...)

We decided to approach this challenge (prostate cancer) with natural and holistic protocols - so no chemo, radiation, or surgery.  We have spent much of the funds on testing and specific vitamins, minerals, and herbs.  The VA pays for the lab testing for specific things, but we paid for a specific test that was sent to Greece for intense testing to see what would make a difference for Kevin's specific DNA, blood type, and cancer specific tumor cells.  We get the results on June 16th.

For a while, Kevin was in such intense pain from his back, groin, and rib area that honestly, I thought he would throw in the towel.  BUT, God supplied a wonderful believer who has knowledge in this field and she helped us to get the right herbs and vitamins to help relieve the pain.  So Kevin started taking 1 Tablespoon of Turmeric with hot water and 1 Tablespoon of Coconut MCT oil - twice a day, along with a high dose CBD tincture, and it lessened the pain so much that he was able to go for a 45 minute walk today.  PRAISE GOD!  We also bought him a chair to sleep in because he was in such pain he couldn't get out of the bed without it hurting and the chair helped immensely.  But now he is back sleeping in the bed and is getting a good night sleep.  The thing I would ask you to pray for now is that I can fatten him up!  He has lost too much weight and is too thin. 

We know we aren't out of the woods but we are encouraged that he is feeling so much better and all of your giving keeps the financial stress away so we can deal with this challenge. And all of your prayers is having impact and is availing much!  So THANK YOU from the depth of our hearts.  Only God will be able to reward you for your generous and loving gifts and powerful prayers.  We love you more than we can convey.  God bless you and keep you in the palms of His hands!

PS:  We are currently living with our oldest son, Jason and his wife, Jenny, and their 2 children - in Crestwood Kentucky.  If you need to reach me for questions or anything - you may contact me at 970-817-1634 or wingsofthewind12@yahoo.com

I am also grateful to my beautiful daughter for setting up GiveSendGo - one of their staff called and left a prayer message on Sarah's phone and prayed for Kevin.  Sarah was very touched by their compassion and care for the folks on this platform.

Hugs to you all - 
Melody and Kevin Carter
