We were picked!

Do you remember the State Bank & Trust Fans' Choice Pay It Forward contest that my book club friends entered my family into?

THEY PICKED US as a finalist!

Would you all consider voting for my video?

You can vote one time per day now through April 19th!

Here is the link to the contest on Facebook Help Vicky Westra.  You'll see my video as the last of the 6 finalists on the page, with the title Help Vicky Westra.  You just click the vote now button and follow the instructions.  You can also post to your wall and encourage other's to vote. I don't get to see who votes unless you are a Facebook friend or you come and tell me.  But my Facebook friends alone registered over 50 votes yesterday!

The video/person that gets the most votes will win $5,000 and be announced April 23rd!  The other 5 finalists will each be given $1,000.

I am already a winner- no matter what the outcome!  But $5,000 would go along ways towards our spiraling treatment costs.  I would encourage you to watch the video if you haven't already.

If its on your heart and you could help us out, we'd be most appreciative!  And we already know we'll be figuring out a way to also pay some of it forward!

Dr. Foster was wonderfully kind yesterday in giving me some pain medication to go along with the other meds I have.  I had a minimum of discomfort yesterday and am very grateful I continue to be in such good hands.  HIS hands are where I continue to rest.


  1. Praying dear one, with full trust and knowledge that you rest completely in Him. He's the giver of all good things, with you being one of the sweetest...Love you, dear friend. I'm continuing in prayer for the mom and babe you saw in treatment last week, and asking our God to protect you this week. Love you, my friend.

  2. Praying for you and feeling so excited you got to be chosen amongst. I am sharing your blog and this link on my blog.
