TT : Diagnosed with the big "C"

Posted on

As I am writing this post for Thankful Thursday.. my heart is heavy. This past 5 days has been so hard for us as a couple… as a church. I wanted to blog about on the first day we got the news but I was still on the state of shock . I just do not have the strength and courage to express my feelings and thoughts.

A very close friend of ours was diagnosed with the big “C” … what is more shocking was it is already on its 4th stage. The Cancer cells already spread to the other internal parts of the body. It is something upsetting since she is healthy as a cow and never been sick with any illness. Being a radio anchor of a health program … she definitely is health conscious. Why do bad things happens to good people? Forgive me Lord if I was able to ask that question. I just can not help thinking about the pain… the struggles.. her husband … the kids… the ministry.

Now, its day 5… shocking as it is , we have already accepted the reality. Who we are to question God’s sovereignty? Our consolation is that in the midst of this chaos GOD IS IN CONTROL! We can remain hopeful for a miracle to happen. I thank God that my friend’s faith remain strong in the midst of adversity. She is positive that the genetic curse of the family will stop in her . She claims that she will be the last victim ( She is the 9th in the clan to have it.) .She is hopeful that just like her niece she will survive.

I Thank God that His miracle is slowly unfolding. A doctor told us that for a stage 4.. she looks healthy. She supposed to vomit blood, to feel weak and sick. I thank God that though everything is falling around… she remained steadfast and immovable in her faith. I thank God for the brethren who willingly gave their financial support. As of now, they are already in Manila for medication. If you are willing to pray for her or help her in whatever way you can… pls leave a comment.
