The big "C"

"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." - 1 Peter 5:7

As some of you know my grandmother's (Nanny) cancer came back in the fall of 2010.   She beat breast cancer two years ago, but we got the news about it coming back a few months before Tyler and I's wedding.  Devastation can't begin to descibe the way I felt when my parents told me.  But my family tried to stay strong and positive until we knew more.  A doctor found a spot on her skull.  After surgery the doctor recommended chemo and radiation to get the spots they could not remove.

Thursday afternoon my Mom called me and told me that Nanny's test results came in and the cancer has NOT spread, the spots she had have SHRUNK and her back (that she broke) is HEALING.  Praise God! The treatment is working! I can't tell you how exciting this news was.  It is truly an answered prayer. My Nanny is such a rockstar and if anyone can beat cancer it's her!  She is a true inspiration.

Through this experience God has shown me his faithfulness and how powerful prayer is.  We are continuing to pray that the treatment keeps working and that Nanny stays strong through this process.  My prayer tonight is that if you are going through a tough time that you can trust Jesus and tell him what you're going through.

One more thing:
In honor of mother's day this weekend I just want to say how thankful I am to have such a wonderful and loving mother and grandmother!  You both are amazing women and your strength and dedication to our family means more to me than I can express.  I love you both so much and hope to be half the mothers you were one day.
