Memories are Special! I know my mom lost her only sister/sibling about 7 years ago, and she still has her moments. They were very close.
I had something happen a couple of days ago that touched me in a special way. I know I have shared that I had a son (Donnie) that died 27 years ago of a rare form of childhood cancer. The prognosis has been so bleak because it's truly considered the worse of all the cancers. I had prayed that I would live to see a cure of that cancer (neuroblastoma). Over the years, I have read and have kept up on progresses being made, but nothing encouraging, UNTIL NOW! On last Sunday, at the annual Cancer convention, it was annouced that they have made a major break through that could result in better prognosis and treatment for Neurablastoma. I read the report and I'm so encouraged!
I miss my son and the years has helped with that healing but the fact that he died of something that is so terrible and nothing was available to save his life. My existence has been believing that something good has to come out of it. At this place in life, the only good to me would be a cure! I hope that we might see that in the near future.
