In late 2019, Brenda, her husband Peyton, and their two children had the opportunity to immigrate from Uganda to the United States. The flight to the states was long—26 hours. Flying for that long, they all arrived with sore muscles and achy joints. Several days later, their 12-year-old daughter, Marcella, could not shake a pain in her knee. They took her to the clinic, where she had x-rays and other testing. From there, they were referred to Sioux Falls and from there, the Mayo clinic in Rochester. In March 2020, they received the news that no parents want to hear. Their daughter had bone cancer. The timing of her diagnosis was both a blessing and a nightmare. They were getting settled in the United States and there was treatment available, but the fear of Covid was at an all-time high. They were new to the county and did not have a lot of resources. With most of Marcella’s care being in Sioux Falls and Rochester, not having transportation—neither a car or a driver’s license—provided a significant challenge for them to get to her appointments. They were connected with Love INC’s transportation ministry and began receiving the rides needed for Marcella’s treatment. With the help of several church volunteers, Marcella underwent a leg amputation, 6 months of chemotherapy, countless lab draws, hospital admissions, and physical therapy. The volunteers giving them rides, sometimes on very short notice, were crucial in Marcella’s treatment and recovery. Brenda shares that they have met so many awesome people who have become like family to them.
