wow it is weird that you started this...I came on here to do this. I will keep your father in my prayers and I hope he gets well soon.
My BO was diagnosed with cancer on Tuesday. I met her in Feb of this year and we quickly bonded... I feel for her soo much. She had surgery to remove cysts on both of her ovaries last thursday. She has been really sick, throwing up and barely being able to sleep. So I've been helping out by trying to help keep the barn clean. On Wed I went out to get my horses washed up and myself packed for a show this weekend and Stacy's uncle was there. I asked him how she was doing only to have him tell me that on her birthday she found out that she had cancer (she just turned 32). One of the samples (out of five) came up positive for cancer. She is the youngest on the floor she is on... the next youngest is in her late 50s. They are going to have to do another surgery to possibly remove all of her reproductive parts (they are going to try to save what they can) and then she will be starting treatment. She is really upset because she hasnt been able to have children and now this will only make it final...I talked to her today when I got back from the show and the once spit-fire of a women looks really fragile. She was a small gal to start with and in the last week she has lost about 15 lbs.... not to mention all of the other weight lost from pervious weeks.
Cory (my bf) and I cleaned all of her barn today, dumped all of the water tanks and scrubed them out, exercised some of the horses, and did a few other things around there to help out. I wish I could do more, I live over 45 minutes away so it is tough to get out there everyday.
Im just asking that everyone throw a little extra word in there talk with God and help my friend out, I havent known her for very long but I start crying just thinking about it. The doctors are feeling posiive about it since they think they caught it early enough, they did a scan a couple days ago and Stacy will find out Monday. Thanks again everyone.
It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.
