And the Greatest of These.....

So we weaving down a new unchartered course on Jillian’s Journey. It has been a long, winding road with many, many, twists and turns. I won’t lie. This whole thing just absolutely sucks. Watching someone that you love, especially a child, declining a little each day is heart wrenching. No, it’s worse than heart wrenching. It’s devastating. And it could even be crippling for some.

I wanted to share one thought with you today. Love.  I have learned more about love on this Cancer road than I ever would have imagined possible. The love for family. The love between two young people as they learn to live with this horrific disease. The love for siblings, the love for parents. The love shown to us through friends. The way my family has stuck together and supported each other every single step of the way, even when we weren’t always so loveable.
We still have more pavement to cover, but  I know without a doubt that this family will have no regrets.

I must be the luckiest mama bear alive.



  1. Cancer journeys are amazing in so many ways - ( I know amazing isn't the best word). No we NEVER want to take this journey but I am so blessed that I met you Sue. I have so much love and admiration for how you are handling all that has come AT you. You have taken this damn black beast - Melanoma- and brought such awareness to it. You have Educated so many of ALL ages. You and I will never stop this fight. I love you.

  2. Sucks is a good word. Proud of you momma.

  3. My brother passed from this same cancer...I pray everyday for a cure. It is very hard to watch someone you love suffering from this. God Bless you all, and I prayer for you to find comfort in knowing she is pain free body, and watching over each of her loved ones!
