I don’t often write about my faith and that was one of my new years resolutions that I never worked very hard on. I do believe in God and in the possibilities of miracles. If it is in God’s will it can happen.
My aunt was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago. It was stage four and she was given six months to live. She began asking her friends to be prayer warriors for her and she has been in and out of remission and fighting it step by step.
I have been so impressed with her faith and her unwavering ability to live and enjoy life in her condition. She’s one of the most amazing people in my life.
Last Summer and last Winter she came up to Washington to visit a very good friend of hers and both times she did everything in her power to visit with me too. Which meant so much to me.
Through out all of her battles with Cancer she has never faltered in her faith. She sends out Christmas cards and e-mails keeping us all updated. Between surgery and drugs I think most people are exhausted by Cancer, but you never can see that in her. You only see strength and determination.
Her latest battle was with a brain tumor that was cancerous. She had it removed surgically and came through the surgery talking. The doctors have given her another six months, but we know that was what she was first given years ago. My uncle has asked that none of us are to give up. The power of prayer and belief in God has kept her alive this long and we should continue to believe in miracles. I ask those of you that believe in God and pray to say a prayer for my aunt. Her will to live is strong and her family loves and needs her still.
