: I am not new to the world of cancer. I know that to some a malignant melanoma may not sound like too much to worry about. I know that I have not undergone nearly as much as some of you and Believe me I have read and heard some real heartbreakers. My heart really goes out to each one. My cancer was a level two and I had surgery. Bouncing between doctors and hospital rooms and Praise God I am now cancer free!!
: I just want to give a word of encouragement to all who are out there. God loves you and He will never forsake
: you..So Please put your trust in Him. My father died
: of cancer and I cared for him for two years as he fought this horrible disease. My G-pa died too from cancer that consumed him at a relatively young age. So I am not new to the world of cancer. I know that each case is very personal emotionally and pysically...Mine was. It is very hard to share with anyone. But I was not alone.The Lord gave me peace that passes all understanding and I realized more than ever how much time I had wasted not doing enough for others. So this letter is for you all. I love each one of you. I may not know your names or your particulars, But God does and I pray for you each night.You are not alone either. He promises He will never leave us or forsake us. I am living proof of that. Please, Seek The Lord first. He is the Beginning of all that is important. Be Blessed, Be well and know you are being prayed for
Thank you for spelling it out! Cancer is so awful, but we must learn to trust God. Jesus took cancer with all the other horrible diseases for us when he died, and defeated them when he came back to life. It is still a reality, and we still die from it, but we can go through it with Him, and He will not leave us, but meet us when we're done. This does take faith that is not understandable, but it can be found by asking Him. And sometimes, He choses to heal us here, so that we can survive this horrible cancer, and tell others..... just like you did.
