The Big "C" Word

I am deeply saddened -- my boss' wife has breast cancer... again!

About 7 years ago, the doctors removed her right breast. Tomorrow, they take her left breast. Through all of this, she is stalwart, brave, courageous even. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. After the masectomy, if it doesn't contain the cancer; if it should spread, she will go through chemotherapy. I feel sad for her and for her family.

Contemporary medicine is not the only option. Why do people think that it is? I grew up in a home where we were very close to the earth. We never went to the doctor. My parents opted to treat us with traditional, holistic, natural healing techniques. I'm grateful! I wish she would try the holistic way. She thinks its too risky. **sigh**

Well -- while she battles the big "c" word -- I will petition the heavens on her behalf. I will call on the Creator's most valiant angels to attend to her and to the doctor's that will work on her.

Wow. All this advanced medical technology we have in this day and age, and this type of cancer can't be cured. A friend of my mothers not only found out recently, she's already in stage 3.

Your friend's courage speaks louder than words. I'll pray her continued strength throughout this illness.

I hate cancer too. It took my brother's leg this past Tuesday. Cancer can really change someone's lie in a matter of days. I sooo hate it.

My prayers are definitely with all facing cancer and any other disease. It takes strength. *long sigh*

Since I'm a travel agent, I'm definitely wanting to do a Cruise for a Cure just to aid in the fight. Besides prayer, that's all one can do.
