Psalm 8:1 ~ O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
Several weeks ago there was a program on all the major networks ~ Stand up to cancer. In this program, it stated that 1 out of 3 people would have cancer at some point! With that being said, it seems everywhere you turn there are more and more people that are being diagnosed. There are several right now in my family with cancer, two of which have lung cancer. My uncle, Spencer, my Dad's brother has lung cancer. He is the last of my Dad's siblings who is alive. He chose not to have treatment. I'm not sure why, maybe his age? His wife is still living, but she has many medical problems, one being dementia. My cousin, Anita is his only child, so this falls all her shoulders. I spent some time talking with Anita Monday and this is a very difficult time for her. I remember vividly how it was the days before Dad passed on. It is hard enough with a Mother who is aware and siblings.
So, today I would just ask to remember these in my family with this horrible disease, but also the many others who are fighting this ugly disease! And, September is Childhood Cancer month. Chili's takes a percentage of the money spent this month to go to support childhood cancer.
