Mother of 5 battling unknown illness receives support from community


HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE, Ark.-A Hot Springs Village community is helping one of their own who is battling a painful disease.

Destiny Rodgers was diagnosed with Acute idiopathic chronic pancreatitis in 2011.

Since then, the mother of five has been in and out of the hospital and has lost her job.

Rodgers says the disease came back even stronger two years ago, and doctors in Arkansas can’t figure out what it is.

People in the community are stepping in to help her raise money to see a specialist in Minnesota and to help with other medical expenses.

“God has been faithful to us. He hasn’t let us down. He hasn’t removed our problems and hasn’t removed us from our problems but he has been right there with us,” Chris Rodgers said.

“My big hope is not only for me to get better, but really it’s to bring glory to God because this has been my testimony,” Destiny Rodgers said.

In March, the community is hosting a yard and bake sale for Destiny and her family.
