I grew up with Helen. Here she is with her husband Jesse. Our families camped together every summer and our parents good friends. I have many memories of their dairy farm and jumping on their trampoline and helping in the barn. Helen and my sister were best friends growing up and still remain close today separated by two provinces. Helen and her family now live farther away and have 4 beautiful children.
But we can always keep in tough via facebook and my sister's updates.
Helen has very recently been diagnosed with an aggressive form of ovarian cancer. This cancer is really taking a round out of her. My heart breaks and this hits very close to home for me. I've been lucky enough to not have been personally affected by this terrible disease....until now.
If you pray, please I beg, pray for her and her family. Helen is an amazing women of God with a servants heart. She is an amazing mom, wife, daughter and friend. Her family needs to feel God's grace and comfort as I know they are all praying for it now. I'm often at a loss of words with what to pray, but God knows my heart and He knows yours. Remember Helen and her family tonight as you lay down to sleep.
