The Frederick Family

Courtney Frederick
Chronic Illness

Three years ago a stomach ache turns into massive weight loss, fulltime feeding tube, bowel obstructions, low blood sugars, no weight gain and hospitalization with frequent trips to Mayo.  Trying to balance being a wife of 26 years and a mother to 4 beautiful daughters and taking care of my numerous needs is still my heart's desire.  This undiagnosed illness has taken away the ability to eat, travel, walk long distances, drive, lift anything and basic household tasks.  I carry my feedings in a backpack or on my IV pole 24/7.  My loved ones and church family have sacrificed many things and walk this journey with me.  I continue to remain hopeful and will never give up as a Tube Warrior.
