Cancer Does Not Discriminate!

Whether you are 2 or 92, cancer affects us all. Whether you are black or white, red, brown or, yellow, Cancer does not discriminate! Everyone is susceptible to cancer... you... your spouse... cancer doesn't care if you are rich, poor or somewhere in between. This is my lovely baby sister....

Today my baby sister would have been 24years old. As anyone knows who has lost a close loved one, it is the hardest thing a person goes through in this lifetime. My heart will never be the same. I have a empty hole in it. When she died she took a little bit of each of us. My sister had Neuroblastoma, and it took her at the young age of 4! Years have past and we still spend her birthday remembering her and remembering the things she would say. :) Today I spent the day talking to her to my kids who are now 12 and 5. My daughter says "Mama, I want to meet her." I tell her "We will when we go to heaven." I am so thankful to God that my children are in good health and spirits.


It is amazing how one 6 letter word can instill fear into thousands of people. It touches all of our lives at some point. Whether it’s a family member, a friend, or a co-worker… At some point we all know someone who is fighting to see that next birthday. And cancer doesn’t discriminate, either. Young or old; male or female; rich or poor; tall or short; athletic or couch-potato; mother, father or child… It affects people of all ages and all walks of life. Myself, I have seen co-workers fight cancer and live to see another birthday. I have had 2 aunts fight breast cancer and leave this world too early. It has touched my grandparents, friends’ families, and acquaintances. Here’s praying we all see more birthdays
& In memory of my baby sister Vanessa

Courtesy Much LOVE!
