To say my world was turned upside down in February 2016 is an understatement.    With a routine test done I was told I had stage 4 colon cancer that had already metastasized into my liver.   I can't really remember all the emotions that ran through my mind - I was numb.   All I could think about was let's get started and get this taken care of so I can get on with my life.   Well we got started and are still going.   I had surgery to remove the colon tumor, but so far the decision is that surgery to remove tumors from the liver is not an option at this point.   So chemo maintenance will continue and a trial radiation treatment may be a possibility in the near future.   

I have such amazing support from my family and friends and equally so from my church family - WEST CONROE BAPTIST CHURCH.    I have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of prayers, cards, phone calls, texts, meals and encouragement that we have received through this journey.   Even 7 months later I still receive cards, words of encouragement and promises of prayer.    

Cancer is not a happy diagnosis and can cause many days of discouragement and doubt.   But I have been reminded over and over again that my Lord has gone before me and still has good plans for my life.    I look to him daily for courage, strength, hope, peace, healing and JOY!  If you are reading my story - thank you for caring about me and praying for me often.   No matter where my journey takes me it is my prayer that my story will honor the Lord and will bring others to know of the saving grace that He offers every person.   John 3:16
