For Melissa Wilson Hill
Daughter of Dwight and Sandra Wilson
Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne is Coming to Support the Family
Melissa is battling Sarcoma cancer. She has a five month old daughter and ten-year old son.
Sandra Wilson, Melissa’s mother says, “The cancer laid dormant in her legs for two years. When Avery (her five month old) was born, the straining of child-birth brought it to the surface of her inner right leg. Melissa has just finished her fourth of five chemo treatments and then radiation will begin.”
A sarcoma is a type of cancer that develops from certain tissues, like bone or muscle. The main types of sarcoma are: osteosarcoma, which develops from bone, and soft tissue sarcomas. Soft tissue sarcomas can develop from soft tissues like fat, muscle, nerves, fibrous tissues, blood vessels, or deep skin tissues.
As we all know, medical insurance coverage has lifetime limits. Insurance carriers usually cover $500,000, $1,000,000, and $2,000,000 per lifetime. It is not forever and does run out. Cancer is expensive to fight. Help Melissa fight her battle with all the Medical World has to offer. Prayers are asked for.
Donation jars at Dwight’s Discount Liquor, Red’s Kitchen, and Simple Simon’s Pizza in Old River-Winfree. Leonard’s Convenience Store at the Chambers/Liberty County Line on FM 1409 also has a jar.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
The true love shown in this video is only a small pinhead compared to the great universe of LOVE God has for you!
(AUSTIN) — Texas Comptroller Susan Combs reminds Texas families to enroll their children in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund® and avoid future increases in tuition and required fees at Texas public colleges and universities. The current enrollment period for the state’s prepaid college tuition program ends Feb. 28.
The Texas Tuition Promise Fund allows participants to lock in the cost of undergraduate tuition and required fees at Texas public colleges and universities based on current prices.
“The future cost of children’s college education can weigh heavily on families as they set their budgets,” Combs said. “Fortunately parents can ease concerns about those costs by locking in prices through the Promise Fund. The prepaid tuition program gives families payment options as well as flexibility in choosing how much prepaid tuition they want to buy, which helps them set aside money to fit into their budgets.”
Under the plan, families can prepay tuition and required fees for a four-year degree, two years of community college or just a few semesters at Texas public colleges and universities by purchasing tuition units.
Enrollment in the program at 2013-14 prices will close Feb. 28. This deadline extends to July 31 for children younger than 1. The next annual enrollment period begins Sept. 1, with new contract prices based on Texas public college costs for the 2014-15 academic year.
Complete plan information, current prices, enrollment forms and more are available online at www.TuitionPromise.org, or call 1-800-445-GRAD (4723), Option 5.
