Dear Fellow LJers,
If you’ve read my LJ blog series you know that I have liver cancer, been battling it for two years and how Woodworking is helping me in a really significant way. Out of over 82,000 members of the LJ forum I assume most of us know someone with cancer or maybe you yourself have the Big C. Cancer isn’t a dirty word, but silence is. We are afraid we might say the wrong thing, that makes the patient feel like their friends have abandoned them.
I want to do my part to encourage people living with cancer, give them and their caregivers hope, and being a Christian, give them spiritual support. I have a blog on WordPress that I forgot about and hadn’t posted anything for over a year. So my New Year resolution is to get busy offering support to people living with cancer.
I’d appreciate it if you would check it out, follow and like this blog. Why? Because if you do more people will visit and increase the chance that someone might be encouraged. You may not need the stories in the blog, it might be “too Christian” for you, but sometime down the road you might find someone you can refer to it as a source of help. As a Follower you won’t forget about it when needed.
Let me know what you think. If you think this was a misuse of the LJ forum, please let me know. Here’s the link to Christians Living With Cancer
Now go make some sawdust and have a Happy New Year!
-- I thank God for everything, especially all of you!
