Welcome to Gail Smith's Caring Bridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and prayers very much. Jon and Paige Buell, friends of Gail and Mason, will be keeping this site updated for Gail. Should you have any questions or need information, your emails from this site will come directly to them.
Gail was diagnosed in October with two forms of breast cancer (ER which is slow growing and HER2 which is fast growing). Gail will begin treatment on Tuesday, November 1 that will include chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation lasting for a full year. If you know Gail, you know she is a MIGHTY woman of faith, devotion, and love for her Lord, Jesus Christ. She is strong, but the road ahead is more of a marathon, and not a sprint. Please pray for her, Mason, their daughters, and grand children regularly over the coming year.
We rest in the character and promises of God and trust Him to provide for Gail and Mason during this trial, but the love and prayers and support of extended friends and family mean so much. Between the Smiths church, Grace Bible, and The Covenant School where Gail teaches Art, we will coordinate prayer support, meals, and any other practical needs that might arise. We will try to keep the site updated with specific prayer requests as needed. Thank you!
