I completed my first Light the Night walk this evening. It was an enjoyable evening complete with illuminated balloons. My team Hope for Hodgkin's raised $585.00. We raised this with little to no fundraising efforts. Next year we plan to fundraise and raise even more money.
I am officially reporting that I will have my port removed on October 28th. I know that seems like a long time but Phil and I are going on vacation the 2nd week in October and I didn't want to have an incision to worry about. I can't wait to get it removed. The port itself does not bother me but it symbolizes cancer. I don't have cancer so I am ready to have it removed.
On Saturday, September 24th I will be walking in the Light the Night Walk in Louisville. My team is Hope for Hodgkin's. If you would like to donate money it is not too late. Also, if you are interested in walking with my team it is not too late to register. The more the merrier.
I do not understand why things happen the way they do in life. I know God loves us all and we are His children. Those of us who know Him as our Savior are promised Eternal Life and will live with Him free from pain and sorrow.
Tonight a dear friend passed away from a 3-year battle with breast cancer. She was 42. We were not ready to let her go. Her husband was not ready to let her go. He loved her so much. When he talked about Mandy his eyes would just light up. Mandy was the mother to Robert, who is 13 and Will who is 3. Mandy loved being a mom and I don't understand why she didn't get to have more time with them.
