Hello and thank you so much for visiting my mom's CaringBridge site. My name is Melissa Taylor and I am her oldest daughter.

My mom's name is Becky Nunn. October, 2008, she was given the news that any person would hate hearing. "You have cancer." And in a matter of minutes, my family's future had changed. My mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer.

Since the dianosis, she has experienced ups and downs. She began chemotherapy in November and has responded positively to the treaments. Although the cancer is noncurable, the chemo has slowed it down. For that we are extremely thankful.

Since learning of mom's cancer, life has taken on new meaning. We have always been thankful to God for life and each day, but what a difference it makes when we are given a diagnosis like cancer. We realized this and have tried to live each day like it.

In March, 2009, we learned there was more cancer in a different area of her body. Although this was not the news we were expecting, and honestly it made me just mad, my mom continues to stay strong. I'm so proud of her.

One of the most positive things I've observed during this trial in our lives is the love of my mom's husband, Buddy. What an amazing man. I have watched him serve Becky (Mama) nonstop each day all day. I've watched him love her, cook for her, administer medication, take her to all of her appointments, pray for her, and take extra special care to make sure her needs are being met. He is so devoted to her. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. He is loving her how God loves. Unconditionally and unfailingly. I love him more for it. So does she!

Friends of mom, you are a blessing. Your cards, calls, love, and prayers mean the world to her, Bud, me, Tricia, and the rest of our family. Thank you so much. You are the reason we have created this site. I hope you will use it to keep updated with mom and also to send her messages, prayers, and encouragement. She loves you all so much!

Be sure to read the latest in the journal, view the photo gallery, and drop her a line in the guestbook.

Blessings and thanks for visiting!
