Cancer: A Horrible Word, A Horrible Disease

Wow, what an awful topic... but so much in my life right now!

My wonderful Hubby had some skin cancer removed late Oct (first time for him) my brothers have had to take care of that many times but it was a first for him and the word is just an awful thing to hear!

My beautiful cousin and my partner in crime was diagnosed with Breast cancer in mid November.  She had surgery and has more treatment to come.

And last My Wonderful Uncle Chuck was diagnosed with a fast growing aggressive brain tumor a week before Thanksgiving.  He is 85 years old and has driven up until a month ago.  He is my God Father (the Cert above) and is a WWII Veteran.  He is a Christian and he knows where he is going.  He is the last of four brothers to go home.  He has so many there that will welcome him with open arms.  I can just see those four brothers sitting in there lawn chairs out in the front yard having a beer.  They will be together again. 
I will miss him with all my heart!
