WAKE UP WEDNESDAY!! CANCER
My Grandmother Had Cancer.
Two Women I know have Cancer and many more people I have known in my life HAVE HAD OR STILL HAVE CANCER. Men have Cancer, the previous owner of our home had cancer and killed himself because of it! My neighbors wife, had cancer and passed away a few years ago - IT EFFECTS US ALL - AND we need a Wake Up Call.
What Is Cancer? : The body is made up of hundreds of millions of living cells. Normal body cells grow, divide, and die in an orderly fashion. During the early years of a person's life, normal cells divide faster to allow the person to grow. After the person becomes an adult, most cells divide only to replace worn-out or dying cells or to repair injuries. Cancer begins when cells in a part of the body start to grow out of control. There are many kinds of cancer, but they all start because of out-of-control growth of abnormal cells.

When I was working at a larger Hospital in Connecticut we worked closely to raise awareness and funds for Cancer Research, Treatment and Education. It was rewarding work just knowing that so many people are touched by the stories or by people they knew - enough to give to this Hospital's Cancer Center. I even gave in HONOR of my Mother who at the time was NOT diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
But now she has been! She was well educated on the disease because her own mother had breast cancer and I believe had a mastectomy. I fear Cancer, but I know that there is little I can do to prevent it or stop it from happening, but for now I have to pray for my mother, friends and those I do not know who are living with cancer. I will continue to give funds, I will continue to support fundraisers and I will continue to PRAY.
Will YOU? Feel free to tell me how I can pray for you or how Cancer has touched your life.
