“Please bless that the two new spots in Mommy’s brain are not cancer.”
This most recent phrase from my eight-year-old son’s prayers tugs at my heartstrings, but also causes me to question faith.
Living with stage IV cancer is a constant battle of choosing to move forward in my own faith. Just when I think that faith is unwavering, hearing these prayers causes me to wonder:
Will the reality that this illness may someday take my life challenge the faith of my three sons, who constantly pray that their mom won’t die from cancer?
