I hate ...

I hate cancer.

One of my best friends is hurting today, because yesterday, her dad went to be with Jesus. All because of cancer.

Mr. Q was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer about 4.5 years ago. At the time, they expected him to make it about six months.
But he fought on, and was here to meet four more grandchildren during that time. He and Mrs. Q never questioned their faith, but leaned very heavily on God.
Back in August, things took a turn for the worst when Mr. Q got pneumonia. Then, the doctors said he probably had 2-3 months. Yet he still refused to give up hope and continued seeking treatment. Last week, they learned the horrible news that some organs were shutting down, and he came home to be with family.
When will we find a cure? I think we have all been touched by cancer in some way, whether through our immediate family, or by witnessing a friend hurt. I pray every day that some cure is found - and that my baby is never affected.
Please, when praying today, remember the Q family. There are five children in this family and they are all friends or acquaintances of mine, and I really want to shower them with love.

  1. There really aren't many uglier ways to die than cancer... it strikes ruthlessly and takes people who don't deserve it. Many good thoughts to your friend and her loved ones during this tough time, especially during the holidays.

  2. I'm sorry to hear that. I've been blessed enough not to have lost a parent but lost 3 of my 4 grandparents to cancer in my lifetimes. It's definitely terrifying. Makes you work harder to appreciate those you love right now while you have them in good health. Hope your well girly, coop is adorable as ever!

  3. My thoughts go out to everyone...i too also hate cancer. I lost my aunt & uncle this year & it has been difficult for me and my family ....i hold on to hope that we will find a cure.
