Praying that the long shadow cast by cancer will one day be vanquished.
Recently, in my 53 Week Challenge, 2012, photo group on Flickr, the theme for week 36 was "Shadowlands"; based on the movie starring Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger. The movie portrays the lives of C.S. Lewis and Joy Gresham, and her battle with cancer.
My mother and I are both cancer survivors. This past week, my mother had another scare and was scheduled for tests. The content of the movie, anxiety regarding my mother's upcoming tests, along with my own experiences with cancer were the inspiration for my contribution to the theme of week 36, as seen in the above image.
Cancer seems to be forever waiting in the shadows, ready to strike. We are always wondering when and where it's going to rear its ugly head.
Yesterday, September 10, 2012, we received the results of my mother's tests and all is well! Praise God!
