With Sadness

A friend of mine lost her 26 year old daughter today to cancer. She had a hard but short fight. When they found out a couple months ago that she had it it was already at stage 4. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. I pray that some day we will see a cure for all cancers and that we can end the suffering of so many. Have a great day and hug your healthy kids and family a little tighter and thank the Lord that they are healthy.
