The Story that Touched My Heart

As a cervical cancer survivor and having been involved in the cancer community for a couple of years, I have heard and read my share of inspirational stories from amazing survivors.  I have also shed tears for the ones taken by this horrible disease. 

Everyone tells a different story, none of them alike, yet you hear and read the emotions that bond us.  The emotions that we all share, the fear, the fight, the uncertainty and the hope.

A couple of days ago, I stumbled upon a blog post from an awesome lady named Terry.  Terry is a cervical cancer survivor, but unfortunately the cancer is back and now it has metastasized to her lungs. I don't know Terry, but after reading her story I feel like I do and it moved and touched my heart in a very special way.
Terry writes: "This cancer is incurable.  I am, apparently, going to have cancer for the rest of my life. I can only hope this treatment will put me in remission for a long time. How much chemicals can a body take before it starts kicking back?  I realize miracles do happen and I’m hoping that some of these tumors will be eradicated by the treatment."

Reading her story, I see her inner strength, her fight, her uncertainty, but I also hear her hope in every word she writes.  She has not given up, she is ready to fight again.  I believe that miracles do happen and I pray that God keeps her healthy and well for a long time to come.  Terry, I will  always keep in my prayers...

More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones. ~ Mother Theresa
