The word "cancer" was one I would never say. I didn't know why, but I didn't even want to look at the word. Perhaps I knew that one day, it would be in my life in a huge way.
It has robbed me of two wonderful, apparently strong healthy husbands in a matter of days, my great grandmother, two Aunts, my parents, two dear friends and now plagues someone in my life that means the world to me. Our family is in holding pattern. Watching, waiting, fearful...hoping ...praying...
Our morning paper was PINK this morning...and this feeling of thankfulness that people were fighting, people cared and the proof was right in front of me. And all of you out there...those of you who have continued to keep our family in your prayers, you have NO idea how it makes me feel.
I know you would fix it if you could. Make it go away. That's what I want to do, make it all go away, but just LOOK at how folks are keeping hope alive...doing all they can.
The only other thing I would ask for, dear God, is a cure!
I thank God for people like you!
My love to all of you,
