Pictures from the Cancer Battlefield, Part I

Mom and her pic line...used for blood samples and chemotherapy.
NO REAL FLOWERS allowed; but her Bible study pals got her this pretty silk, fall arrangement and mylar balloon (NO LATEX allowed).
One view of her newer, bigger room - stem cell unit, room #5.
Long view of the room - TWO recliners and a BIG TV - waahoo!
Mom enjoying a lunch - the food at CTCA is fabulous!
Silk topiary arrangement with hummingbirds and 4 mylars from M, W, and myself.
Anyone who's ever been to a Cancer Treatment Center of America knows what this is...
Pastor Monte Knudson from Faith Christian Outreach Center in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa (my parents' church), mom, and dad.
Monte, mom, and dad.
 All the Love in the World,


  1. Heavenly Father, as you know, I am facing a major health challenge in my life. I ask that you grant me the energy and determination to seek out and find the right physicians, treatments and programs; the courage and grace to follow them; and your peace and serenity to rest and restore my body, mind and spirit. Amen.
    Looking Good Kerry!
