You know them. I know them. Perhaps your family is one of them. Families who have been touched by cancer. I think that having small children would make having cancer more difficult. Not only is just doing the every day tasks more difficult, but the emotional facet of perhaps not seeing your children grow up must be factored into the stress of the situation.
Of course, that is not to say that having cancer is any easier for those of us who have grown children. There are always grandchildren we would like to see grow into adulthood. Yes. Cancer is difficult for everyone.
We are not given a choice in life about what diseases we will and won’t have. Our genetics and lifestyle can and will influence our health, but for the most part we just don’t get to choose. Famlies are part of the illness and the recovery.
As we pray for the folks in our lives who are will, don’t forget to pray for their families.
