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.
