"There is always hope.

"There is always hope." It just comes in different forms."
How easy it is to accept this journey when you remember that.

What can we Hope for?
Hope starts the day of your diagnosis when instead of panicking that you have
cancer; you realize that you've been given a second chance to live.
Hope continues when you wake up from your surgery and see all those smiling
faces of people that love and support you.
Hope is being overwhelmed by someone telling you that they are praying for you.
Hope comes after they've staged your disease and quoted the statistics. It dawns
on you that SOMEONE has to be the positive side of those numbers and you decide
then and there that "that someone" will be you.
Hope comes by arming yourself with knowledge and information.
Hope is in changing your physical lifestyle so that you can maximize the
benefits of treatment.
Hope is in the fact that there is chemotherapy and actually, in the fact that
there are many different types of chemotherapy for ovarian cancer. If one
doesn't work, maybe another will.
Hope is in knowing that we have fabulous healthcare facilities and exceptional
medical talent operating them.
Hope is in the breaking news - dozens of stories every day - where extremely
intelligent men and women are working to find answers and solutions to ovarian
cancer and its treatment.
Hope is in reading about the dozens of clinical trials which are underway.
Hope comes when you realize that a recurrence isn't a death sentence but just
another bump in the road.
Hope is in truly knowing that more and more, ovarian cancer is being treated
like a chronic disease and that there will be recurrences and that there will be
good answers.
Hope is in realizing that you are a heck of a lot stronger than you thought.
Hope becomes part of you when you discover the universal light in your heart. It
gives you love, happiness, compassion, forgiveness and most importantly
Lastly, hope is in trusting and accepting that our transition from this physical
level of being to the next is the ultimate peaceful, natural and enlightening
beginning we are each created for. (Author Unknown)

Researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, put it on toast instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol and could potentially save one from heart attack. Also, even if you have already had an attack studies show you could be kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of cinnamon honey strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken daily even chronic arthritis can be cured.

Through my journey with breast cancer I noticed all the commercials depict beauty as being perfect on the outside,
but God sees us as beautiful because of what is on the inside. God laid it on my heart to tell YOU ... You are Beautiful! And this is the video I prepared.

Being Alive And Grateful For Much!

This painting is one inspired by cancer. By french artist Claude Jacques                                                                                                  
This painting is based on Psalms 103: 3 It says" Bless the Lord Oh my soul, and forget not all His benefits!"
The person thankful in the picture doesn't seem to have much,  but has MUCH to be grateful for!
My Wife got ovarian 3C cancer and our lives have been turned around. We realize that we have much to be grateful for. We want to encourage any out there that thinks negative about what has happened to them. Actually, facing cancer or facing death makes us  appreciate the small but precious things of life. Life becomes so much more real and precious. Dear reader look to God and be grateful you can even look up to Him.
