Default Unexpected Cancer News :-(

A family friend's daughter, Leah, was diagnosed last month with invasive ductile carcinoma; stage two breast cancer Leah is fairly young (in her late 30s) and the diagnosis came as quite a shock. Leah had opted for an MRI of both breasts, a bone scan and genetic testing before surgery only to get get more bad news. She found out that she carries the cancer gene so she is facing a double mastectomy and has to have her ovaries removed followed by radiation and chemo.

Leah had surgery Friday and is now recovering but is facing the battle of her lifetime. She has faced this so bravely but understandably is just weepy at times. Her mom and dad live out of state and are there now helping her through her recovery - she is not married and has no children. It's shocking to know how someone's life can change so dramatically in just a short period of time. Do not take one day for granted!

If anyone would be willing to send Leah a card I know it would lift her spirits tremendously. Any sort of encouragement or humorous card would be great. The funnier, the better.

Send cards to:
Leah Miller
2866 Emma Lane
Brunswick, OH 44212

Thank you for your kindness.

Along with my prayers, I'd be happy to send a card to Leah. Thank you for sharing her story.

I'll also be praying for Leah as I create a card for her.
