There are times that it's hard to know what to share or what to say. This is one of those times. I have two friends that are battling cancer. Her battle is with the disease itself- because it's not her first battle- she has fought it before, but it keeps coming back. For him, it's watching his wife summon the strength to fight this monster yet again and to know that he can't fight it for her or with her- just give her support.
She's in the hospital now and family has gathered. There's not much the doctor's can do for her, except make her "comfortable". To which the cynic in me says "what's comfortable about cancer?"
I've fought my own battle... deciding what to share on here and not wanting to invade their privacy by posting about it... but then the power of prayer hits me and I'm making a plea for those that read this, to keep them in their thoughts... because even though I don't know what to say or how to say it, I know enough to say "help me"...
