Beautiful, strong woman
There's a woman here who I've known for many years who is now battling her third round of cancer. Years ago it was breast cancer. Last year she was diagnosed with cancer in her hip, spine and some surrounding organs. After intensive treatment and a hip replacement she was doing very well. Not curable from what I understand, but treatable. Last week they discovered cancer in her brain. Doctors are 'optimistic'........but I seriously have to wonder just how does one stay optimistic after this? It's like Laurie is being tested beyond normal limits. She is a sweet person, loved by many. I graduated with her sister and we all three worked at the local Dairy Queen in our high school days.
Bless you Laurie and my prayers are with you......always!
