Strength for Today, Bright Hope for Tomorrow

Dear Friends, The first of six rounds of chemo is behind us. We’ve been told over and over that the words “chemo” and “calendar” don’t go well together. This proved true last week. We were scheduled to be in the hospital for 5 days and 4 nights but were forced to stay 6 full days […]
