    thanks for sharing that wonderful post, before it happens to your family you think that cancer is something that happens to others but that all changes when someone you love gets diagnosed then it becomes personal. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was in college and that was scary thinking about losing my mom. thankfully she too has been in remission since then, congrats on your family members beating cancer.

      Thank you, Lorrie. Hearing that word is something that will shake your entire world to the core when it is a diagnosis that a precious loved one has received. You know this well! I’m so happy to hear that your mom is doing so well now. Praise The Lord!!

      I have had well meaning people tell me that since it is in two of my family members that my chances for it has increased. I am praying against that, though, for me and my two precious daughters. I am adding you to that prayer as well. God is bigger than cancer. He is the Great Physician, and I place my trust in Him.
