The Big "C" Word - Cancer Visits Edwards Family Again

(11/23/2009)

Seventeen years ago, the words "YOU HAVE CANCER" hit our family hard. We thought with Larry's diagnosis, this can't be happening to us, it only happens to other people. The support of love and prayers from the people in and around Calhoun County was tremendous. I will never forget how much this helped us.

Once again, I heard the words "YOU HAVE CANCER". This time the words were to me. I have been diagnosed with Uterine Cancer. The good part of this, they are telling me it is, they think it is contained and removing it will take care of it. When I heard that I had cancer, I could not believe the strength that GOD had given me. Then I remembered "ONE SET OF FOOTPRINTS"...when we need it HE is there...carrying us along our journey.

I will be going to Morgantown December 4th, to the Cancer Center to meet with a doctor to discuss my situation and where we go from here, so once again I am asking people from Calhoun and surrounding counties to add me to their prayer lists.

From my own experience it is hard to know what to say to people, who have this disease. Don't be afraid to talk to them about it. At least this is how I feel. As I said I am doing good and I BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRAYER.
