    Decision Point

    This Cancer was too big for me to deal with, it took me down to my knees, where I asked God for his grace and mercy for what it was doing to my family, I asked him for courage and strength for me, and I asked him for his divine healing in the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost to remove this evil mess from my body, and to him I give all the honor and glory and praise. I have been in remission for 1 year and am leaning how to deal with the neuropathy w/o meds.
