Survivor Story: Sonia Gamblin



Written and Contributed 
by Friends and Family

Earlier this year, Sonia Gamblin (pictured above left) was diagnosed as having a hemosiderotic fibrolipomatous tumor, a form of Sarcoma that attacks the soft tissue.  Since the first surgery to remove the main mass, she has had four additional surgeries. 

She is receiving treatment from the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah and is currently having to travel back and forth weekly from their hometown in Rawlins, Wyoming. 

Despite being about five hours away, the Huntsman Cancer Institute is the nearest Cancer Institute with doctors who specialize in this rare diagnosis.  Even so, the doctors do not know much about her diagnosis as no one has large experience with these cancers.  


We live in the most amazing community as Sonia and her family have already been met with an outpouring of love and support.  Fortunately, Sonia and Thom have insurance which will go a long way in covering medical expenses, but of course there are deductibles, co-pays, travel expenses, medication, and etc. 

We have no doubt that Sonia will get through this.  The outpouring of love from the community has been so overwhelming and truly heartwarming.  The Gamblin family is beyond grateful and so humbled by all of the love and support. 


Please continue to keep Sonia in your thoughts.  The Gamblin family is vast, stretching between California, Wyoming, Illinois, (some even located in Dorchester, IL and Wilsonville, IL) and Missouri. 

We all believe and trust in God for her healing and a financial blessing to help cover these enormous costs!
