|Ali and Frasier aint got nothing on these two fighters|
|I turned around and she already had them in a circle holding hands, fastest ive seen her run in months!|
Today, as we were leaving, my Mom saw a group of nuns come out of a van(not the beginning of a dirty joke), as soon as she spotted them I knew exactly what she was going to do. Right away she gets bright eyed like a five year old who sees Cinderella for the first time, she runs to them just like a kid and makes them all get in a circle to pray for her, she would! As she was doing this I took a picture, I would! When she got back from her prayer session I was like, “Mom, I knew you were going to do that!” She was like, “How often do you see a group of nuns, of course I’m going to ask them to pray for me.”
We met a woman from New Zealand who was travelling with her BFF. She had an advanced form of Lung Cancer and was given 3 weeks to live 4 years ago. If you met this woman you wouldn’t be surprised that she beat the odds because she has such an amazing energy and presence, both her and her friend do, they both fill the waiting room with laughter and cheer. She told my Mom that a combination of chemo, nutrition, and meditation have kept her going. What was most surprising about her story is that her friend has offered to pay for her trip to America and her treatment. I was floored, this guy isn’t even her husband; she said she was happily married to someone else, just a friend. I guess if you own your own Ski Resort, which he does, you can afford to pay for stuff like this. We exchanged numbers with Georgie and Christian and will definitely be doing dinner with them before we leave.
On a technical note, Mom began her first gene targeted therapy today. She’s taking a medication called PB, it obviously has a longer name but that’s the acronym,that attacks tumors on a cellular level and makes it easier for other medications to kill and break up the tumor. Her new doctors are approaching her disease with gene targeted therapy. Their goal is to stop and shrink her tumors. Once they get her blood and caris results back they will choose medications that match up with the markers present in her blood and design a specific treatment just for her. I have a good feeling about this.
