A survivor

Dear Cancer Friends, Thank you for the beautiful card, the cross, and the gorgeous prayer shawl. I had my first rehabilitation treatment yesterday; it went exceptionally well. I have 19 more. Please pray that all will go as well as the first. When I get to a better schedule, I would like to be a part of the support group.
