Have you visited http://www.jodiesjourney.com/ ? This website tells the amazing story of a real life wife and mum and her journey (still continuing) with her health.
I encourage you to read Jodie's story and pray for her and her family. I'm sure that there are few of us who are not touched in some way with loved ones and friends who are undergoing major health issues and some of us have even had to face the pain of losing someone close to us due to a fatal illness or disease.
Let us not stop praying for and assisting where possible those around us who need our attention and support.
Take a look at Jodie's What to Say page - http://www.jodiesjourney.com/what_to_say
Enjoy life. Live to make a difference!
