My beautiful sweet sister will be having surgery this morning to remove cancer from her spine.
She has been battling this terrible disease for a year now.
You can read more of her story here and here.

She continues to be a ray of sunshine~ with laughter always near her.

She is a wonderful example of faith and courage.

She is my hero.

I love you sweet sister
and I lift my prayers up for you~

Am also thinking of her sisters and her mom and dad, this must be so very hard on everyone. Love you all....:-) Hugs

Chas, I just read this on the other site and prayed for Shauna, and I hope all goes well.

I'm thinking of you and sending you my warmest hugs across the miles. I wish I could be there in person to help.
