I'm adding another ribbon and it happens to be pink

September 16, 2011 was the day my mother received the phone call that it is cancer.
The dreaded words that you never want to hear just 3 short months after loosing one of your dearest friends to the dreaded disease they call breast cancer.
Of course horror floods the mind and our Creator comforts the soul.
Through the words of the docotor and the stop of the heart beat in the moment,
{peace be still.}
Today we met with the surgeon, oncologist and chemologist.
"It is a miracle that you missed the past 2 years with your mammograms... we may not have found it and certainly not as early as we have."
"At this point with your type of cancer there is a 98% cure."
"It looks to be contained."
"We have caught it very early... if you have the diagnosis of breast cancer this is the type you want to have."
These were all words we had wanted to hear given the diagnosis.
So today I will be adding a ribbon to my blog as this cancer has now touched my life closer than I ever wanted it too. By the grace of God we have a good report and the best outcome possible ahead.
Although nothing is 100% until the surgery, we are believing from God to give my mom hope, strength and courage to fight this disease and become 100% cured!
My God is faithful and I know it is all in His hands and His control.
We will support her a day at a time.
Thank you all for your prayers and your text.
It is so nice to know where to go when you need people to pray.
I even had people that texted me and said they had us on their hearts and very heavily today and they had no idea what was going on.
No who can say my God is dead?... He is SO ALIVE and He speaks to His children every day.
I just pray that I hear His voice everytime He speaks for those around me.

I know this angel in heaven is rejoicing for mom in knowing that she has been diagnosed early and her chance of survival is extremely high.
Donna, you are truly missed and greatly loved.

Psalms 46:10
“Be still, and know that I am God!
I will be honored by every nation.
I will be honored throughout the world.”

Cancer Faith

Cancer may come unexpectedly into your life,
Bringing fear, hard times, and great strife.

Families suffer and the end clearly unknown.
Families are stronger than ever and not alone.

Our personalities must stay optimistic,
Feeling better and free will be realistic.

The experience could be a long, hard ride,
Twists and turns in which you have cried.

When you fight and beat it and go on to live,
Don't forget the people who are here to give.

Love and care will forever and always stay.
Cancer will be knocked out of the way.

Your soul is and will be stronger than this;
It can conquer cancer, destroy and dismiss.

Courage and memories are very much needed,
As tiring treatments have faithfully succeeded.

Friendship, family, and faith cannot be suppressed;
They are the loving souls that make you blessed.

When my love-filled Mom became a cancer survivor,
I soon realized that I was an underwater diver.

You dive in but you never know what is there for you,
It could be your worst experience or the very best view.
