Cancer Hope

Published July 5, 2018 by lynn k scott

I am part of an online Christian homeschool group.  I have been blessed to part of this group.  They offer support and encouragement in homeschooling and every day living.

I had posted a difficult post asking for some recommendations.  In addition to the information I had asked for, I was given the name of a person to contact.  As it turns out, this person had a very similar diagnosis to mine.

We exchanged messages yesterday and she was the blessing I needed to receive.  After almost a year since diagnosis, I had finally connected to someone I could relate to.  Like I have, she had turned her care over to God after her surgery.  She changed her diet and is now cancer-free.

I am currently in the process of changing my diet.  While science and doctors would admonish my decision to omit their “expert” advice, what I have received so far from them has been less than productive in my battle with cancer.

While I can’t speak for what others should do, I find her story to be extremely encouraging and it has given me new hope; hope I was struggling with.

QOTD: Topic – Motivation

Published July 17, 2015 by lynn k scott

“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.”  (Bradley Whitford)

Second round with the Relay for Life

Published January 27, 2015 by lynn k scott

I just signed up for my second Relay for Life.  My friend is walking this year, so I signed up with team she is on.

My first Relay was completed a couple years ago; shortly after my sister’s death.  While I remember my mother beating Hodgkin’s Disease and my father losing a short battle with stomach cancer, losing a younger sister to breast cancer devastated me.  I chose to walk in the evening; knowing I would miss the ceremonies and the majority of people would be sleeping.  It was my time to walk, to honor her memory but not be overwhelmed with cancer stories; good and bad.

My goal was to raise at least $100, which I surpassed.  I have the same goal this year and would like to at least double my goal amount.  I am hoping to walk again in the late evening.  Even though this Relay will take place exactly one week after my sister’s 3-year angel-versary, I still am coming to grips that 37 year old sister, mother to three wonderful girls, lost her valiant battle with stage four breast cancer mere months before her 38th birthday.

I walk to help end all cancers so no other family learns what it means to fight this disease.  Whether you realize it or not, cancer isn’t a solitary disease.  It affects the entire family; sometimes community.  Everyone feels its affects.  Together we can make that feeling go away.  No more tears, no more fears and no more worries from hearing a doctor say, “you have cancer”.

I have a donation link, but prefer not to post it on a blog.  If you would like to make a donation or help share my donation link and my story, please contact me and I’ll send you the information via email.

Thank you!

I have gone through quite a few trials in my life.  There are days I didn’t know how I would make it through.  The quote for today is very true.  It’s the silver lining of a situation, it’s the hope and it’s there if you will just look through the darkness for the light.

“It is often in the darkest skies, that we see the brightest stars.” (Richard Paul Evans – Author)
