Check out her "story" at "Can I Be Pretty In Pink."
This is Deena as she's "Bounding the stairs ready to take on the world."
She's on an incredible journey right now.
I so admire her spirit and her courage. She's never damper at heart, even though she's been through quite a lot the past few months and has even received startling news even as recent as yesterday.
You see Deena went to begin her very first "Chemo" treatment......it was to have been a long "5 Hour" process however, they weren't able to give her the treatment because they found she has an "infection" somewhere and they have to administer antibiotics to her first now before she can start the chemo treatments.
They also gave her some more reports on her current physical condition while she was at the treatment center and.....
I will let her speak for herself at this point.
"I couldn't play chemo..as my white blood count is too high
somewhere there is an infection..so antibiotics
this week and back Next Friday..2/1 at 8:15 AM for
blood work and try it again.
The cancer is in stage 4..in more lymph's thru my body
my adrenal glands, another 1 cm node to the left of my aorta,
in my 9th rib..rib is breaking down..in my spine and
numerous areas of my skeleton (bones).
Well I just lost it!! Rich looks sad and scared..but
as I read before..and my BFF Marcia reminded me
EVERY CANCER IN EVERY STAGE has been survived..and
I intend to fight the fight..
God's will be done.."
I am determinded to continue to stand on behalf of not only Deena but also for the countless others that are in need of urgent prayer.
I'm asking you to add her name to your prayer list please.
I know alot of you read this site although you may not comment on it because some of you don't have accounts and such. Many of you write me personally via e-mail but never comment on this page so I know your reading and I thank you for that and all your impute.
The web can do amazing things if we allow it to and I have learned it is a
"quick link" to many people all over the world.
It's a great tool for information and encouragement, prayer and whatever else we need or want "IF" we allow it to be.
That's what I want this "Secret Garden" to do for you and for others and for me. To be a safe place of refuge, a place of care and concern.
Yet, we can join forces for the common good of people.
I'm just here to help "Cultivate" the soil.
I rely on the "Master Gardener" for all the rest.....
especially the "BIG STUFF"....I've learned in life that "you can trust Him."
He's a pro.
