This year has started off going down hill fast. As you know, my wonderful mother in law passed away from melanoma. Not a way to start off the new year.
The last few months have been horrible. Putting my issues aside, my younger cousin 45, has stage 3 colorectal cancer. She went through aggressive treatment that just finished. Now she is waiting and hoping for surgery. She has an enormous support group and I feel strongly that she will do fine. She is an amazing woman and I admire her strength and her courage.
Now, this afternoon I found out that a very close and dear family friend has inoperable lung cancer. She is like another mom to me. My heart is breaking. She had gone into the hospital for surgery, but they found cancer in to many nodes, so no surgery. I had to tell my mom that she has the flu. I had called her from my moms place. My mom would have been to upset to handle the news.
I hate cancer. I really hate cancer.
If you could say some prayers or send some good healing thoughts to my cousin and our dear friend, it can only help.
Thank you all for every good thought you have and all your prayers.
You all mean the world to me.
