    Remission

    Celebration

    Through everything, we are stronger in faith, love and our priorities. Nothing would surprise us now. We live everyday as if it were our last. We need to go every 3 months to check that this cancer stays in remission. You never know!!!

    What could go wrong, did go wrong. There was so much, I had to write it down and e-mail facts to our friends and family. I gave medical information and facts on what helped and what didn't. I was asked to write a book about it to help others. If you feel the need, the book is titled. "Together Strong" A Journey of Faith, Community Care and Human Struggle Through Cancer. You can find it on Xlibris.com
