With Memorial Day just around the bend, the kick-off to summer is here! If you or someone you know is facing cancer, or even has been through cancer treatment in the past, there are gatherings and retreats for you to also make plans to attend.
There's no greater love than what a parent feels for their child. When that involves a young adult being diagnosed with cancer -- stage four -- in her 30s, mom will do anything it takes to bring a smile to their face, even if it means embarrassing herself!
I've lived through Valentine's Days single, as part of a couple, and even engaged (in 2002). Some will find this odd, but of the men I've met and dated so far, I have actually been happier on the single Valentine's Days than the coupled ones.
I was diagnosed with stage four cancer at only 33 years old. For some reason the thought of "Why ME? Why is this happening to me?" never repeated over and over in my mind. I certainly wasn't expecting this diagnosis, but I know the statistics.
For reasons unbeknownst to me God decided to not only bestow upon me the powerful & positive idea to help others face "Cancer with JOY," but I was also given the thought that helping others face "Cancer with Faith," literally and figuratively was very unique and something I should pursue.
The words "You have cancer" are arguably some of the most devastating you can hear. I have found new cancer patients (and those supporting them) love hearing stories (and seeing pictures!) of how survivors faced cancer.
