Sr. Carol,
This was on the wall at my doctor’s office and I felt like it was written just for you.

What Cancer Cannot Do
It cannot cripple love, shatter hope, corrode faith or destroy peace.
It cannot kill friendships, suppress memories or silence courage.
And most importantly, it cannot invade the soul, steal eternal life or conquer the Spirit.

I thank you for being the glorious person that you are!

Love, Marianne

Sister Carol, thank you for sharing your life with us, and LIVING VICTORIOUSLY....

Living victoriously is about choice when facing a difficult journey.  It is a state of mind not bound by circumstances.  It's not about living a life without trials and tribulations; it's about finding the riches that are hidden within them.  Living victoriously speaks to joy despite hardship, unrelenting hope, a courageous spirit, an enduring strength, a grateful heart, a humbled soul, an unexplainable peace, and undeniable faith. 

Always in our heart........

I've been a bit remiss in checking this site. Just read a couple of months of comments, & "like"d them. Many many people care for & about you; they've all expressed my many thoughts & prayers for you. I hope you visit & re-read these comments, whenever your "well" needs re-filling.

I'm sure it was a difficult decision to suspend chemo; hope you're less "Punky" every day. My dear Busie, (Gramma), used that to describe how she felt. So I've grown up with that word - thanks for reminding me! It's so expressive!

I always look for you at Mass & around SJA's campus. Hopefully I will see you here soon. In the meantime, prayers, hugs, & God Bless. Amen.

Dear Sr. Carol;

I just finished reading your article in today’s bulletin and it brought tears to my eyes. It’s so amazing that you find the words to inspire and encourage all of us despite what you are going through. I am so sorry for your most recent challenges, and hope and pray that you indeed will feel better soon!

We have missed you at SJA (and that’s an understatement), as I’m sure you know. I keep hoping to see your smiling face, but certainly understand how difficult that would be right now.

 Lately I’ve been drawn to theDivine Mercy chaplet, especially the sung version, and try to repeat at many points in my day, “Jesus, I trust in You.”  You model that attitude and level of faith in a most incredible way and I hope that you know how much that means to all of us.

 We pray for you daily andhope to have you back for that second dinner as soon as you are feeling up to it! Matt is home this weekend and we’re having another pork roast, but I’m quite sure he will eat most of it!

 We love you!

 Jeanne Van Egmond

Hi Sr. Carol,
i believe that you have made the right choice, Quality of Life over Quantiy of Life. I will probably have to make that decision at some point in my cancer journey. With metastatic breast cancer it's a matter of when, not if. You are very brave, I am still praying for you, and will continue to pray. You have been a good, positive role model for me and I thank you for that! 
Love,
