Cancer… What an ugly word!


Cancer is a filthy disease! It takes lives, it steals quality and it weakens the soul. My mother-in-law is a warrior against cancer. She was diagnosed with cancer about 6 years ago for the first time and since then it has been an on-going battle.

The treatments are rough and she keeps losing her hair but… she has a golden spirit. Her laughter lights up the world and her love lifts your spirit. She is an encouragement to all who know her and she never lets anything get her down.This post is dedicated to my mother-in-law and others who are bravely and cheerfully waging war against this demon of cancer.
I also found a blog of another cancer survivor which I felt fit this description: Someone who lights up the world…Please check it out if you wanted to be inspired:

    What a special courageous lady. So glad we got to meet her even though it was so very short. But we will meet again in heaven I know. ❤
