Sad News to share

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Sadly, I will be on and off SP due to being diagnosed with Colon Cancer. Found during a recent colonoscopy. Awaiting authorization for surgery from the insurance company. On a positive note the surgeon thinks it will just be a section, but until they go in, it is all conjecture. Then again until they receive a pathology report and I speak with an oncologist.
My Faith is strong & I believe in Miracles and Prayers.
I ask you my friends to keep not only me in your prayers but my Jack also,.

With Love

    Donna, I am so very sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Jack and your medical team. God definitely hears and answers our prayers according to His plan for us. With Him on your side, you can't go wrong!! If you have any questions at all or if there is anything you aren't comfortable with, feel free to call the Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Ken and I go to the one in Philadelphia. There are four in the US and they are currently building another in Atlanta, GA.
We are going to Philadelphia on Sunday as Ken has his mammogram scheduled for Monday before seeing his surgeon. You may remember that he had to have a complete mastectomy two years ago due to having breast cancer. His MD here at home wants him to have his other breast removed for prevention. Of course that is his decision alone.
You and Jack are never far from my thoughts. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with you, my friend.
Blessings, love and hugs,
Helen

    Very sorry to hear that. I will keep you in my prayers. Hope you have good faith as I think it keeps us going in times like this. Like the others have said, positive thinking and relaxation are great healers. I would say - don't give up Spark - it is not just a weight loss site, come on for encouragement and support and positive thinking. Any when it is over you can be the one to inspire others who find themselves where you are today!

    Hi Donna, I'm very sorry about your diagnosis, but I want you to try not too imagine the worst. Visualize the body's own healing power already attacking the cancer, and that healing power working with the chemo or radiation to kick that cancer out! Tranquility is conducive to healing, so meditating regularly will be a great habit to acquire. Prayer, as I know you know, can be very powerful. Let us know how things go.

    Hi Donna,

I hope all goes well with your surgery. I had stage 2B breast cancer at 28 and it's been 18 years since then. You will get through this. Surround yourself with positive uplifting people and talk to others who are going through the same thing.

Take care and best wishes,
Donna
