    Overcoming fear
    Added Nov 12, 2018

    I was told I needed a liver transplant and I was worry at first. Then I thought about who created this body and my fear went away because I thought about what I had read in the Bible. ‘COURAGE in Time of Fear’ Psalm 46 and it over and over. I look at all things I have done in life and thought all the peoples I had met, and my family members I lo…

My cancer is rare. It grows slowly, but it grows. I do not “look like I have cancer.” I hear so often,“You really look great.” The problem is I …

    LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
    You’ve probably heard this before; however, it meant little to me until I was the one being told, " You have colorectal cancer." If you are experiencing something out of the ordinary, such as pain or discomfort that will not go away, call your doctor.

    This can be a useful tool for yo…
