Are you or a loved one fighting cancer?
Have you just been diagnosed and looking for help?
Have you been battling for a long, long time and wanting to give up?
We definitely understand!

Our founders, Joe and Terri Fornear, have been through an intense Stage IV cancer battle (metastatic melanoma) and Joe has been cancer free since 2003. The Lord was their Stronghold throughout – holding on to them when they were too weak to hang on to Him.

“He only is my rock and my salvation, My Stronghold; I shall not be shaken.” – Psalm 62:6
