I need your help please - Words of Inspiration Needed

I come from the breast cancer forum, dx at the age of 32.

I want to reach out to all of you because I'm working on a project for my aunt, who was diagnosed with AML (leukemia) at the age of 46. She means a lot to me because she has been like a mother to me. She is having a hard time with support and health care. There is no support in the Dominican Republic and she needs to hear positive words. So I thought I could collect words of inspiration from several cancer patients so she gets inspired everyday. It looks like her treatments will go on for 2 years, sadly. Her cancer is in the bone marrow. Prayers are welcomed for her recovery.

Please, post something inspirational from your experience below this post. I will be translating all these messages and create a scrapbook for her. I think all cancers bring up similar emotions and fears.

Thank you so much for your help.

Her name is Rosis.

May God hold your Aunt in his loving hands.  May He give her strength in her difficult times and she feel His calming touch as she rests.

what a great gift!

There was a song we used to sing in church that said Have thine own way, Lord, have thine own way. Thou art the potter, I am the clay.  Mold me and make me, after thy will, while I am kneeling, yielded and still.

I do not believe God caused my cancer, but I do believe he allowed it, for some reason.

perhaps I wasn't yielded and still? the cancer has been an enormous prioritizer for me and my family.  I dont know when or if my cancer will recur but I know I have met people J would never have met if it weren't for cancer - including you!


Tell your aunt to be encouraged - if she is a believer she wins either way! if she goes or if she stays.


love and peace

Thank you soooo much for such beautiful and kind words. I will share these words with her and I am sure she will be very grateful.

Janh - She is a believer! And like I have never seen before. While I was in the hospital with her, she would get off her bed to pray for a sick patient by touching the patient and praying right in front of them. This is the kind of person she is. I love her. She helped me through my cancer and I am grateful for you. I am also grateful for all my peer cancer survivors. You all get it.

God bless you.
