Show Traci Your Love

RECEIVED Mon., April 16, 2012

Dear Editor,
    As you all are aware, Traci [Lamar Hancock] has been "in the dance" of seeking healing and recovery from her second bout with ovarian cancer. So many of you have given so generously of your time, talents, money, and love during this time. Words fail in expressing our gratitude to each of you who are in this journey with Traci and her family.
    On March 29, Conni Hancock informed us that Traci is now seeking only alternative and supportive routes to healing. This decision was reached after great effort and expense in the traditional Western medicine approach to cancer. The traditional medicine avenues were very expensive and there is no insurance to provide a cushion. The alternative treatments are also very costly.
    Added to these costs is the necessity for Traci's family members to reduce or stop working in order to be of support and care to Traci.
    If you have ever been in a serious battle such as Traci's, you know these things to be true:
    1) Money is gobbled up in the blink of an eye.
    2) Family presence and support is vital.
    3) Medication for pain and supplements for healing are expensive.
    So, in short, we come to you again asking for your love and kindness to be expressed in the specific form of financial contributions.
    We invite all friends and fans of Traci and the Hancock family to join us in our goal to provide for Traci by gifting to the site.
With love and gratitude to each of you,
Mona Bromley
David and Suzanne Armistead
