Cherise joined our church home group last fall as she was studying Interior Design at the University of North Texas. I remember, right after she joined, we went to coffee on the Square and at that moment knowing what a sweet and genuine heart she had. She was really quiet at first, but it did not take long for everyone to find out she was HILARIOUS. She was an awesome friend to gain during that time and continues to be.


On February 10, I received a text message out of the blue: "Don't worry. Cherise is being care-flighted to the hospital right now." Ummm...WHAT!? After a few phone calls to other home group members - we headed out to the hospital with confusion and fear.


Earlier that morning Cherise was at home with her roommate and suddenly felt instense pain in her head. Before she knew it, ambulances were in front of her house, filled with paramedics ready to help. Her heart beat quickly raised to 450 beats per minute, went into a-fib, and had to be shocked with the defibrillator five times. She was soon care-flighted to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth and diagnosed with having a stroke of the brain stem. At the young age of 24.  After being treated in the ICU for 3 1/2 weeks, Cherise underwent intensive physical therapy to re-learn how to talk and walk. Since this time, Cherise has been unable to work, but has made huge strides on the road to recovery. She still has a few surgeries ahead of her to help with the damage caused by the stroke. Countless doctors have been in awe of Cherise's recovery and the fact that she is still here today. We give Him all the glory for that.  "I have made you & I will carry you. I will sustain you & I will rescue you."   -Isaiah 46.4 


The Lord has saved Cherise and we praise Him for that!
