thanks for my health

My Health!
My Great Aunt Lou was diagnosed with breast cancer soon after her husband died. It has been a tough journey for her to battle. She has had chemo a few times and now they told her it isn't working. She is home and comfortable for now, but they predict she won't make it to Christmas. Breast Cancer runs on my mother's side. My Grammy's mom and all of her sisters and brother's had it or another form, and there were 10 of them. My mom's dad died of cancer and her brother died of Luekemia when he was 4yrs old. What tradgedy my Grammy has had to indure and now her one and only sister dying of cancer as well. She feels bad that she is healthy. I think she is in the toughest spot though. To lose that many people to cancer is just unbearable in my eyes. I am so greatful that my Grammy does not carry the gene, it is still possible to get breast cancer but a lot less. I love you Aunt Lou and am praying for you to have peace and stay comfortable. I am happy for you to meet up with Uncle Don though!
Also, Brody's great Uncle died last night due to illnesses he has endured for a long time. He was only 74yrs. He left a wonderful wife and many kids and grandchildren. Dennis you are walking again and out of pain, we will miss you, but we know you are in a better place!
We have had our share of illnesses with Bingham and Boen, but we are mostly healthy and greatful for that!
