Gentle Grace

My Art

With quiet beauty
and gentle grace,
you kissed my hands,
and washed my face.

You took the time
to brush my tears,
holding me close,
calming my fears.

You were the rock
on which I stood ,
Made me believe
I really could.

All that I am
and hope to be
Came from the love
you gave to me!

For twenty five years I have been a cancer survivor. I am grateful every day.
There are many not so lucky.You will see my little buddy Eli featured in this cancer post. He is fighting like a warrior against neuroblastoma. Check out his story. His father is quite a writer. Also featured will be poems written by my friend, Rebecca, who at age 26,lost her battling stage 4 ovarian cancer. Her poetry reflects the devasting effects and is sometimes emotionally difficult to read. Eli and Rebecca put a face on this disease for me.I hope you will join me in any way you can to help end cancer.

For me this candle represents
a constant burning prayer for
all those suffering from this disease.

Won't you join me in praying,
not only for those suffering from this disease,
but those working so hard to find cure.
