A few days ago, my sister was told her husband had multiple myeloma. A cancer of the plasma cells in the blood. It is treatable, but not curable. Her husband of almost 30 years has a long hard challenging road ahead. I pray for them and pray for her.
It was just over 30 years ago that we lost our father to leukemia. Diagnosed during the 3rd week of October 1978 and passed away six weeks later on December 7. She, my mother and I lived through that challenging time and now the two of them battle the demon again.
To my sister and mother, you are two of the most courageous women I have ever known. My heart goes out to you. You keep smiling in the face of adversity and travel the rocky of road of life with grace. I love you both.
