Amy | She Wears Many Hats

Am praying for you right now and will be passing this along to other that will pray too. Wish I could hug you in person, but a virtual (((HUG))) will have to do.


Oh, Sarah. I'm so sorry you're having to suffer through this. Please know that we're praying for you and your family, especially as you make your way through the next two weeks.


Oh love, I'm so glad you shared. You need to feel the arms of many wrapping their arms around you in love and comfort. I am doing that to you at this very moment. I am praying for you and your family and the doctors. Stay strong. Try to embrace the daily beauty around you and within you.

Much love and peace being sent your way!


Oh Sarah... this pains me so much to read this. Please know that so many of us are out here praying for you. I'm so sorry you have to go through all of this - it just isn't fair.


Sarah you are so strong and we are all here to support you. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. xoxo

Dot O

Sarah, you know you have my prayers every day (my husband's prayers also). Like Amy, I too am sending my virtual hug.....


Oh Sarah. I had no idea. Sending prayers to you for peace and fortitude, and to for your family for strength. I send you my love as well, trusting that love never fails.


So sorry to hear are always in my thoughts and prayers tenderly! Just keep wiggling like Maxwell and that'll make us both smile, and of course Finn jealous! Much love, Lynnie

Tami Weignartner

Sarah. You are loved. You are cherished. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers.


You are surrounded by much love and many prayers. We're here for you and your beautiful family. Stay strong as you always have. You're special to so many, Sarah. We love you.


Sending many hugs for you and the girls. You have shown such strength through all of this and I know you will continue to do so. Know that we will all be there hugging and helping you through along the way. Love you.

Donna Boucher

My heart breaks for you. BUT you are getting great care and medicine can do great things. You are on top of it and I will be praying for you every day.
Now go zap the crap out of that horrid cancer!
You are surrounded by loads of love!

begin with a Sunny Outlook

Praying for you. I'm sure your doctors are some of the best. At the risk of 'butting in', and though I don't have any personal experience with these hospitals, I always feel the need to remind people of hospitals that specialize in complex and advanced stage cases like Cancer Centers of America.

Sending you prayers and wishes for wellness.


You have some amazing people on your blog praying for you and your family right now, my prayers included. We will continue to cheer you on and be here for you!

Brother John

You, PS and the girls will be in my thoughts and prayers. Now, go out and kick this cancer in the ***. Love you.

Sherri Jo

This is hard news to read, but I'm glad you had the courage to share with us.

Continue to surround yourself with beauty. Let the love of others flow all around you.

Robin Wilkinson

You are surrounded by people who love you and care about you very deeply, even people who hardly know you at all. Your smile is infectious and just when I needed someone you were there for me. You are in my thoughts daily and I hope and pray that you and your family will fight your way through this setback as well.

Love, The Wilkinsons


Gosh, I don't know what to say - only that I hope you know that you were one of the first of my "online" friends to really make me feel good after my diagnosis, and for that I will always be grateful. I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts Sarah.
On another note, I saw the pictures from the ranch - you totally ROCK the headscarf look - I love how you even matched them to your outfits! You looked beautiful in every one of your photos.


Your family has been in our family's prayers every day, since I came to find your blog. We will continue to pray for you and the family. Sending you all hugs and love.


Sarah, it must have been difficult to even post this message to us all. I will pray for you. It's difficult to even write this message back to you without getting a lump in my throat. Keep strong and live each day to the fullest with your family and friends...Keep telling yourself each day that you CAN BEAT IT!! (BIG HUG)!!


Sarah - only good thoughts and wishes, hugs and prayers coming your way. You are a special lady and I hope you feel the love and support coming from your online community.

Kiva, Farmstead Lady

You and your family are in my prayers. Take care!!!


Sending hugs and prayers your way all the time, and appreciate all you share here. You're an inspiration, Sarah! xxoo


Sarah, I am praying for you and thinking only the best thoughts for you and your family.


Oh Sava...there are no words to say. Thinking of you.

Norma in Alabama

Sarah, I have only been reading your blog for the last couple of weeks and have come to admire your strength and spirit. You are fortunate to have a good support system and smart enough to lean on them. You will be in my prayers as you go through this phase of your life. God's blessings for you during your treatments.

Elle M

I wish I could give back to you all the support and encouragement that I have received from you through your blog. Keep fighting and keep writing. There is always hope.


Sarah, I'm sorry you have to face another obstacle on this journey. Your amazing attitude has been an inspiration to so many people. Never give up!! Praying for you everyday.


Well - that sucks the big one, doesn't it? I hate how cancer likes to just slap us back to reality...SOB! I will be holding you and Susan from Toddler Planet close to my heart at JMU's Relay for Life this Saturday - where for the 2nd year, I've got luminaria honoring you both. Fight on......

{am so enjoying your Pioneer Woman visit stories...on her blog and yours - what a wonderful treat!}



Sarah, you are the strongest person I know. Know that we are sending hugs and prayers your way for you, the girls and husband. We all love you very much.


Just one more person sending you warm thoughts and a big hug...I'm glad you shared this, so your online community can keep you surrounded by prayer and love.

hilary cooper-Kenny

there are no words. You are so young.....I think that life is so unfair sometimes, and acceptance, while seemingly impossible, is the only answer.
I will be praying for you. Praying that whatever you face, you are strong enough.
Sending much love your way.


Oh've been in our thoughts and prayers from the get go, and we'll continue to keep 'em coming! Thank God you're surrounded by family and friends to help you get through this! You and little Kathleen are 2 tough cookies, and no matter how long it takes to kick cancer's butt, you're both in it to win it! Stay strong Bud!
Much love...Kathleen

Brother Andrew

Hang in there Sis, you are a stong one. We all praying for you, PS and the girls. If we can help in any way, let us know.


Thinking of you during this difficult time.

Alice C

Sending you love and thinking of you.


Damn if this isn't a sucky diagnosis. Your family will hold you tight and take good care of you, as will the medical community. I hope to hear good news in the coming weeks!

(((Hugs))) and many positive thoughts coming your way, Sarah.



Matthew 17:20 If you have FAITH as small as a mustard seed, NOTHING will be impossible for you.

I PRAY that everyone that reads this....EVERY SINGLE PERSON...stops and prays for Sarah Stump Street..every single day. Every day.

The power of prayer is amazing and we need Sar to feel his love through our prayers. EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!



We are keeping you in our prayers both day and night. It humbles me to see all the love and prayers coming from all your friends. Love and kisses to you the girls and hubs MOM


I just. I just don't know what to say other than I can pray. I can pray that the treatment will heal you and I can pray that your fears will be calmed. And I will know that the Lord will hear my prayer.
{{{Oh, Sarah}}}

Two Barking Dogs

I don't remember when I started reading your blog or how I even found my way here. I kept coming back to see how you were doing, learn about your journey through the cancer treatment maze.

Ive always appreciated your positive outlook, and your strength in how you deal with setbacks. Prayers for you and your family as you deal with this.

M.J. Jacobsen

Damn, so sorry. Prayers, hugs, and good vibes coming your way. Wish it could be more. I've been reading your blog for quite awhile now, and I've always been struck how very strong and courageous you are. I will be praying for you and your family every day.


Thinking of you at this difficult time.. Sending prayers to you and your family..
Stay strong you can win this new battle!
XOXO, Janet Wettig

Kate I

I have come here via Kate at Chronicles of a Country Girl. Sarah, I am sending prayers and healing thoughts to you and to your family to help you through. Many blessings, Kate


I can't stand cancer. I just can't stand that nothing has cured or stopped this from affecting one more person or one more family. My heart is breaking for you, Sarah.

Know that you are being thought of daily.


I came over from Kate at Chronicles of a Country Girl to say I'm thinking of you and sending light and love to you and yours. And Kate was right about your photography. Gorgeous! God bless!


Sarah, your courage is amazing! I will continue to keep you in my prayers.

Judy Doren

Dear Sarah, Country Girl gave us some of your story. I can't be there to help out but I am here praying for your health and happiness. I say the rosary each night and you will be on the top of my list. I had a bad stroke and lived thru the power of prayers. You can too!
Hugs and giggles, Judy

Donna S.

Darn it!!! You are in my prayers. Please god heal Sarah completely!!
