“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
Cancer has affected so many people and you are hearing more cases of it often. I had cancer and went through treatments and I am cancer free now. When I was first diagnosed the the C word my heart dropped, I was in shock, stressed and I felt very alone. I had a good support system, great doctors and many prayers were prayed for me. I believe that battles you go through in your life make you a stronger person. My heart goes out to anyone that has been diagnosed with it. If you are battling it remember to stay positive, have a good support system, remember you will get through this and you are not alone!
Some friends I know are putting on a Fundraiser for Wellspring Niagara cancer support and from what I went through I believe in the cause so I wanted to be a part of it. I believe if we stand together in the fight we can all make a difference.
