This weekend Jackson and I went to Texas to celebrate and cheer my mom (his Lolli) on as she walked the Survivor Lap at Relay for Life. Her life changed drastically last October when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, but after a double mastectomy and chemo, she has kicked cancer’s butt! My mom is seriously the strongest person I know. She has been through hell, yet I’ve never heard her complain. Two weeks after her surgery, she made the 4 hour trip to my baby shower. She was at the hospital for Jackson’s birth and stayed with us a few days just a month and a half after surgery. She mowed the yard after a chemo treatment and if you didn’t watch her closely she would try to mop the floor and do laundry when she wasn’t supposed to. Not to mention, she couldn’t keep her hands off Jackson, although she wasn’t supposed to lift him! She is one tough cookie, well actually, she’s just STUBBORN! 🙂
Here are photos from Relay for Life! It was a great night and our family has so many reasons to celebrate! I don’t believe that God gave my mom cancer, but I do know that He will use this for his Glory! It’s only because of Him that my mom was able to walk Friday night and be called a survivor!
