Sandy and Steve have been our close friends for over 10 years now. Our daughters, Jamie and Summer played softball together starting in 5th grade and they are in their 3rd year of college! They started with rec ball, then played on a travel team, finally progressing to a tournament team (plus high school). We spent almost every weekend with them in the summer for years! We have gone to the Ohio state tournament and traveled all over the country for the Nationals tournaments. And I can't forget winter softball in an indoor facility!!
A little over a month ago we went away for an overnighter with Sandy, Steve and Jamie. Sandy was telling me she had a doctors appointment because she thought something was wrong with her gall bladder. Well, within 2 weeks from that she found out she had liver cancer that had spread from her colon. At 49 years old, Sandy is in excellent health, eats a very healthy diet and excercises regulary. She had no symptoms!
Ironically, the day I found out and talked to Sandy about her cancer was also the same day as the release of my cancer set..Hope!! Just like the one stamp in the stamp says "Nothing is Impossible with God"!
Sandy faces a tough road ahead but I know that with the right treatments and with all the prayers from family and friends, and through the grace of God she will pull through this!
I am asking every person who reads this to say at least ONE PRAYER for Sandy..and if you can please include her daily in your prayers.
I know that God gave the idea to me to start Our Daily Bread designs, to help spread His word, and through this business I have gathered some of the best God-loving people in the world!! My husband, Rick, always says my customers are such wonderful and righteous people and are the "cream of the crop"!!
This is an older picture, taken on a caribberan cruise our families went on together over spring break, and it shows Sandy and I by a beautiful flower arrangement we had been admiring. We do look a little goofy in it...lol!!
Here is an other picture of Sandy with her husband of 26 years, Steve, during the same cruise.
They have 2 children, Scott, 23, and Jamie, 21 (and a chocolate lab named Charlie!!).
I really would appreciate as many prayers as possible for Sandy to help her through this difficult time in her life. Thank you and God Bless You!!
The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it. Mother Theresa
