The Moment my Life Changed

At approximately 1.45pm on August 9th 2007 my life was changed forever by the doctor telling my husband. “You have cancer.”

Those words in that moment set in motion a series of tests to find the root of the problem, meetings to decide the best way forward and a course of treatment to get rid of the dark shadow that is now hanging over our lives.

For the first time in years and with more vigour than ever before I have turned to God.

I started to pray as I have never prayed before and I have received more comfort than I thought was possible. As I have prayed I have felt the presence of the Lord and the Blessed Virgin with me.

When I pray, the tears stops and the fear evaporates. Those feelings are replaced by hope for my husband’s full recovery and a belief in his healthy future.

I believe that with My Heavenly Father and His Holy Mother as our allies in this fight we can win this battle. Together we will defeat this enemy.
