I reached out to you shortly before Christmas asking for your help. My mother, a retired Registered Oncologist, learned that she was consumed with cancer 20 months ago. Ironically, the disease that she helped families cope with took over her body and put her on a hopeless path at the age of 72. Her struggle turned into a fight and I believed that her anger towards the cancer turned towards the Lord. Though she gave her life to Christ some 50 years prior, I felt her relationship with our Father had weakened as she began to place blame. My wife, my best friend, witnessed my fears and directed me to you. Although she didn’t have the fortune of having the Carry Cross throughout her battle, it made its way to her just in time. She shared her pride in the cross with her neighbors in the hospital and I knew that she had finally found her peace with the disease and with our Savior. My mother passed 2 days later. While my mother is with the Lord, her Carry Cross is with me and I will cherish it throughout my life on earth.
