Today we celebrate a victory! My friend, Donna, had her last chemo treatment on her 62nd birthday and was pronounced “cancer-free.” Her long battle, her perseverance and her faith have been exemplary! She gave me permission to share her victory story with you.

Go, girl! We’re celebrating with you.

Dear Family and Friends,

To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1 Amplified

There is for some a time for cancer, killing cancer cells, battling and persevering.
There is a time of victory when crossing that finish line.
A time for restoring cells, to heal and get strong!
The Lord has won this battle for me and He is the Victor!
Thank you Lord for this next season of Spring when things are new and the old passes away.
The season of restoring, healing and strength.

Yesterday I completed my last and 12th chemo treatment crossing the finish line. I lift my arms up in victory, joy, love and prayer to my Faithful God who has carried me through this journey.
I pray that My life will continue to fulfill His purpose for the remaining years He has for me. I want to tell you again how important your prayers, support, and encouragement have been to our family. When one goes through cancer, it is so important to have a support system and a resource center during the journey.... There are so many people that have taken this cancer journey that are all around us. This journey changes one's life, making one more aware of life around them. THANK YOU for being there for me. The Lord Bless You!

With Love and Thanksgiving,
