Yesterday, another woman lost a breast to cancer. I know her only slightly, as she and her family are good friends with one of our sons and his family.
She has a family, two daughters and a husband and she is a strong woman and will be a fighter thru this. She was once a CHIP. (California Highway Patrol)
Having been in her home and around her and hers from time to time, it was so sad for me knowing what she was going thru. It made me wish there was something I could do and there was..... I kept prayers going her way, this Thursday, as she was having the surgery, that all would be OK.
I checked with my daughter-in-law to see how she came thru it, and learned she is doing as well as can be expected after such an ordeal. The tumor was much larger than expected so they had to remove all her lymph nodes, instead of just one as they had hoped for. Now, they are awaiting the results of the nodes.
This is a woman who always had her mamograms and her monthly self exams. She had had a cyst removed and when she found this lump the doctor thought it was scar tissue, but thank heavens he ordered more tests.
The reason I find I am compelled to write about this, is I realize none of us, as women, are safe from this insidious disease.....We must contiue to fight back by having our regular mamograms and do our monthly self exams and give, when we can, in the hopes they will soon find the cause and the cure! And...don't forget the amazing power of prayer, even doctors are now recognizing just how powerful prayer can be!
Won't it be wonderful to wake up one morning and find the headlines of the paper to read, Cure For Cancer Found!
**I hope each of you that visits my blog will click on the right, to give free mamograms to those that otherwise would not be able to have one!**Thank You!!
So, my post this beautiful Pink Saturday, is dedicated to all that have had to fight the battle, to those that have won the battle, to those who are still in the battle and to those that sadly did not win.
