Thank you for sharing your personal story.
I will be sharing my mom's with you in an Email.
Have a bless day


You're an amazing woman! I can't even imagine the strength that you've had to have!

Now this post makes me cry!!! I think the photo of Melissa with her mom did me in.. as a mom of 2 young kids the worse feeling I ever get is when either of my kids are sick.... I could never imagine outliving my children.. or having to go through nursing one with a life threatening disease.. although I know several very courageous mothers that have.. It just breaks my heart..

My heart goes out to Melissa and her mom... and all the daughters and mothers that are the care givers when one or the other has cancer.. Angels.. every single one..


YOu are an inspiration. I have had one friend with Breast cancer and she is a 5 year survivor. She is also amazing!!!

I am so glad you are doing well and I pray that you will stay in remission. I can't even imagine facing such a difficult battle.

I have a link to your blog on mine. Thanks for having the courage to share your story.

Melissa, if you read this, I want you to know that one more person thinks you are amazing and beautiful. I can't even imagine what you went through, but I admire you so for sharing your story with everyone. May God bless you always. Linda


The curious thing about trials is that they become gifts when we share them with others....and thereby make a difference in the world.

Thank you so much, Melissa, for making such a difference.

God bless.

Just thinking of you---you are such a great source of strength to so many women and I admire you for the battle you have so valiantly and graciously fought. So happy you are healthy and strong today.


oh what a story!

I pray that you continue to experience His divine healing.

What an inspiration you are; and incredibly courageous as well!

It often happens that from the worse possible circumstances, wonderful and powerful seeds are sown ... the old, "every cloud has a silver lining."

Your candor and grace under pressure is inspiring ... you've planted the seeds of hope and courage in many women, myself included.

~Sending hugs, prayers, and thanks,

You should be very proud of how many people your affecting and encouraging by your story. I can only imagine its not very easy to have your life open for all but I applaud you and THANK YOU ! I just added your link to my Blog and hopefully you will get more visitors that can be encouraged.
God Bless You !

Melissa reading this post has given me such strength that if I was told some stricken news today I would remember reading this post. I had wrote on your blog about someone who has just gone through this, and I'm happy to say she is doing really good. I would also like to tell you that my husbands grandmother is 96 yrs. old, and she is a breast cancer survivor. She was stricken with it when she was in her 70's, and beat it and is still going strong today. Always believe in hope.


wow...you go girl!
i am so touched by your story, by your transparancy.
i am a former pediatric oncology nurse. went into nursing specifically to take care of children with cancer. i practiced for several years until my husband was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma- a very very aggressive cancer. he passed away within 7 months. i was left with 3 girls under the age of 3--i was 30 years old.
i have so many in my life who were also touched insome way by cancer....as probably most of us are.
i will remember you in my prayers...YOU GO GIRL>>>beat this old nasty thing!!!
