Jeannie Pierce Seegars was a bright, vibrant, talented and loving young woman who lost her life to severe gastroparesis on June 7, 2014 of this year. Jeannie had a hug heart and a passion for helping others. One of the last things she told me was that I must help those that were left fighting this disease in any way possible to help raise awareness of this little known disease and it's ravages on the body. That is why I set up this fund.....so we can use the funds to help those who need to travel to the few doctors around the United States that have some small clue about how to treat this disease. I ask you to please dig deep in your pockets to help us help more families. We have helped 2 so far. Let's make it 100 by Christmas next year......please can you skip just ONE Christmas present this year to give.......just a dollar even......if a lot would give a little....it would grow into a lot........Thank you.......

"You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in Your book?" Psalm 56:8
The day I got married, June 27th, 1970,we had one of the worst thunderstorms in the county we'd had in a while.  I had to get dressed in a room that was separate from the main vestibule of the church and I remember my Mother being so worried that I was goin...

Auld Lang Syne...........
Today is January 27, 2014.  Two days ago, January 25th, 2014, marked the one year anniversary of my double mastectomy.  I didn't post on that day for a reason.  For fear I would have been too melancholy about the whole thing.  I count it now as a day of God...

Story
Tagline
I am a 60(almost 61) year old wife, mother and grandmother. I have been on disability from Lupus since 1998. I have just been diagnosed with breast cancer. This is my journey.
Introduction
I have been married to Gene Pierce for 44 years.  I have two daughters, Melissa Pierce McKay and Jeannie Pierce Seegars.  Melissa is married to Tim McKay - the finest son-in-law a mother could ever want - and she has two children, Pierce (seen in my profile picture) who is16 and is on the autism spectrum, and Reagan, a beautiful 13 year old. Both of these grandchildren are the loves of my life.  My daughter Jeannie struggled for 21 years with a debilitating disease called severe gastroparesis. On September 14, 2013, she married a wonderful young man named Ardell Seegars. It was a heartbreaking love story that ended in the death of my daughter after only 8 months - the result of her disease.
Bragging rights
I went to college at the age of 34 and earned a degree in Math/Computer Science. After school, I was hired as a computer programmer and ended up being a Systems Designer. I worked there for 10 years until I had to take disability because of a severe lupus flare.
