My precious friend, Cindy is going through the fight of her life, breast cancer. Everytime I see her or hear from her on the phone, she makes me laugh. She has such a wonderful sense of humor and she has touched more lives than she knows!
She is a single mother trying to raise her precious little girl and then she got hit with this horrible disease, cancer! I know how much she loves her little girl and how much she loves life! I just pray that God will give her strength as she goes through this really tough time in her life.
She had to have a double mastectomy and she also had 12 lymphnodes removed and 8 of them were cancerous. The doctor said they had gotten all the cancerous lymphnodes and a fat globul that was in the lymph area, it was also cancerous.
Cindy's strength is more than amazing, and I know if she can beat this cancer on shear will alone, she can do it! I'm pulling for her and I pray for her every day! She's so precious to me!
As you read this blog, please say a prayer for my friend Cindy, she so loves life and she could really use your prayers! Thanks so much!
