I believe in miracles

I believe in miracles...

Last week my father-in-law completed or "graduated" from an 18 week treatment program consisting of radiation five days a week and chemo therapy once a week.

Earlier this year he had lost a lot of weight and abilities to do simple things such as a crossword. There was a spot of cancer in his brain and in his lung.

He was looking very weak and grey and I was very worried about him.

I am happy to say that he looks great and feels great!

His treatments were in Midland Michigan which was fairly close to home, however, he was extremely grateful for the bussing program that took him and many others to and from their treatments. They were not picked up at their homes but at convenient meeting locations on the way...

For those of you just beginning a treatment program, there is hope!

One day at a time.....

I believe in miracles...

Marilyn - congratulations to you and your father in law!  It's wonderful when miracles happen in cancer treatment.  I have 2 very close personal experiences with this...my grandmother who lived for over 20 years after cancer treatment when the doctors said she wouldn't live more than a year and my mom who is cancer free for over 10 years now!  You have to believe in miracles when a loved one is undergoing treatment.
