Faye's Fighting Pack!!

Our whirlwind began in November 2011 when our mom, Faye Stephenson, found out she had a tumor in her ovary and would need to have surgery immediately.  Things were a blur after that.  On December 5, 2011, our family was hit with one of the biggest nightmares after her surgery.  We found out that our mother was diagnosed with Stage III Ovarian Cancer and that things were more extensive that the doctors initially thought.

Anyone that knows our mother knows that she was a very "strong willed" woman.  Within a few hours after surgery, after Dr. Soper told her the news, she matter of factly looked at him and said "well, I'm not giving up, I'm fighting this." With the love of all of our family and friends, by the grace of God and the power of prayer (not to mention mom's strong will), she completed her 18 weeks of weekly treatment in May 2012 - all the while working pretty much every day, wedding planning for her daughter, working on getting another child graduated, and as always, being a strong support for her family.  In May 2012, mom was officially told she had "No Evidence of Disease" and was in remission!! 

Her battle continued and she fought, without a doubt, until the very end when she went to be with our Hwavenly Father on July 3, 2020.  

Her most prized possessions were her 3 grandchildren, all of which visited her religiously in her last days on this Earth.  She loved her family so hard, and her work family so hard.  Saying "she's no longer in pain" may be true; but certainly does not make it easier for her family.  We miss her more than words could ever say, which is why we will keep fighting!

Now, more than ever, we want to continue her fight and continue to push for a CURE and educate others on the signs, symptoms and treatment options for ovarian cancer.

Join us as we keep fighting for our mom, Grandmommy, wife, friend, sister,  teacher and family member.   


Please help us raise funds to education, diagnose and hopefully find a cure.




Please join us!
