A Little Help From My Friends

Gentle Readers,
I could use some prayers for my hubby's sister-in-law.  She has coped with breast cancer for about four years now.  It spread to her shoulder  a year ago and she has had three surgeries since then.  She just found out that it is now in her spine.  She is having a lot of pain.  Her spirit has been wonderful throughout this ordeal and remains so.  She trusts in the Lord and has a great peace.  The doctor figured she had had the cancer in her breast for about five years.  She had put off her mammogram for those five years because she was starting her own business and didn't have the time.  So ladies, please get your regular mammograms.  Don't put it off.


Thanks everyone.

I am so sorry that she is hurting so, and having to go through this. I'll say a prayer for her. And you are so right ... not something to put off. Good advice.

Oh...bless her heart! I will most certainly pray for your sweet sis in law. Cancer is a nasty nasty thing, isn't it? :(
