My Family And Friends Battled Cancer With Victory!
In the last couple of years now, I have personally experienced the healing of 4 close friends who had cancer. With the modern technology that we now have, over 40 years later. I have a better outlook on the word “cancer” since many people I know have recovered from it. My niece, Lora Kesselhorn, my former boss, Ron West, my friend and pastor, Mark Mallwitz, my pastor’s wife Sue Sauer, my friend from my Bible study Terri Stephen, all had cancer in the past couple years, and all made a full recovery, thank God!
Plus thousands of others who successfully go through treatment and are living healthy lives today! This too shall pass, and with the technology that doctors have in the medical field at present and of course with faith in God. Disease and illness still can be scary, but have hope because God is in control.
When You Hear The Word Cancer?
What To Say / Do With Someone Battling With Cancer:
- Show empathy, and do it quietly. A hug and a simple “I’m so sorry,” or “Praying for you and love you!” made a real difference for me. Don’t compare to others’ struggles or minimize their pain. (Avoid: “It could be worse. Time heals all wounds. It’s all part of a bigger plan so don’t worry, and you wouldn’t believe what happened to, it’s not that bad.” or anything else that suggests that what they’re feeling is wrong. It’s OK to grieve.)
- Offer specific help, and let them say yes or no. Instead of a general let-me-know-if-I-can-help offer, be specific. It can be as simple as making a few phone calls on her behalf or running an errand or two. Why not offer to keep the kids for a few hours while she rests? Go by and fold some laundry for the family. Walk the dog. Bring over a hot meal for the family or some easy-to-microwave frozen meals for later. (Whatever you offer, be OK with his or her answer. If they decline your help, that’s OK. Let the decision be theirs.)
More Ideas In Offering Help!
- Support; don’t fix. A phone call, text message, a simple note or card with a few encouraging words can mean so much. It can completely turn a dark day around. (“Thinking of you and praying for you!” are often enough.) Resist the urge to “fix” the situation for them (e.g., “You know what you need to do is…”); let God handle the “fixing” part.
- Be present and willing to listen. Just be there. Wow, doesn’t that sound simple? Let them know you’re around and you’re still part of their life. Above all, listen. If they want to talk about it, listen and hear what they say. If they’re going to be silent, be willing to stay with them in the quiet. Still, don’t fix! Be prepared to answer, “This stinks, and I’m so sorry you’re going through it,” and stop there. ~ Melody from DaySpring
How To Cope With Cancer?
My family and friends were definitely the keys to my recovery. One thing that I do suggest is that anyone dealing with a life-threatening illness like cancer chooses a point person for people to call to find out how you are doing – a sister, brother, mother, father, daughter, son, or close friend. ~ Olivia Newton-John
Matthew 4:23 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.

An Ounce Of Prevention Is Better Than A Pound Of Cure!
I have never had cancer myself, but I have attempted to cut the risk down in ways that I do have control over, such as I quit smoking with God’s help on January 10, 1988, I do not lay out in the sun on purpose to get a suntan, etc. You can practice doing the same! ~ Bill Greguska
