3 LDS Sisters Battle Cancer Together, Find Humor Not Fear in Their Challenges

“We’re sent to this earth to be happy and ‘man is that he might have joy,’” Sharee Page, who is battling cancer said. “And you can either cry about your situation or you can look to find the humor in life, and I prefer to be happy. I find that the more that I can find humor in things, the easier it is to be happy.”

Sharee, Annette and Lindsay Page, two sisters and a sister-in-law from Davis County, Utah, share the same last name, the same faith and, now, the same battle against cancer.

Sixteen years ago, when Lindsay Page married Sharee and Annette’s older brother, Ryan, she never would’ve imagined that someday she would be joined by two of her sisters-in-law in the fight of their lives. But the Page sisters, who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, don’t believe their shared battle is a coincidence.

“Just one person going through cancer is inspiring when you see these people that are so positive and faithful,” Lindsay Page said. “But the fact that the three of us have it has really caught the attention of the media and to me, I just wonder if it’s a missionary opportunity, maybe, to share the gospel and give people hope.”
