I live in North Carolina. long story on how I got to this story. However, I love her perspective. I have a 21yr old cousin that was just diagnosed with Breast Cancer a few days ago, note: The same disease that killed her mother 9/29/09. She's terrified, so I keep lifted her thru prayer. It's stories like this that reminds you that if there's no allowance you cannot be easily defeated & the efforts for recognition is admirable. I hope that the young lady in this story is aware of how much of a difference she is making! Really a great example of Faith + Works!
