Thank you for taking time to follow Meaghan's journey of healing as she battles Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer.

Meaghan, our five year old daughter, was diagnosed early November 2009 after an MRI revealed she had a 4 cm solid tumor in her cerebellum. The tumor resection, while successful, resulted in serious complications.

Cancer is a family affair and here I try to chronicle not only Meg's journey, but our whole family's as well.

The New Curse Word

Madison has declared "cancer" a curse word.

This morning we had to tell Madison that her friend's mother passed away on Sunday morning. Five weeks ago, this humble woman of uncommon integrity and faith was diagnosed with cancer. She was a devoted mother and wife, actively involved in her children's schools. She loved and served the Lord openly.

My heart aches for her family. My heart aches for what my faith struggles to reconcile. Why a loving mother? Why my daughter? Why these two who bring so much love into the lives of others? I don't have an adequate answer and even if someone did have the answer I'm not up to hearing it right now.

Yes, my faith is strong enough to find peace in the saving grace of Jesus. But tonight, my faith and my mind need to silently yield to my emotions.
