Before Sarah’s prom last week, her friend Taylor came over to set her hair. When she was done, Sarah unearthed an old bandana and wore it over the pin curls for several hours.

Today Sarah is officially a ten year, bone marrow transplant survivor!
Woo-hoo and hallelujah!
A few years ago, another cancer mom asked me to write an article for a cancer newsletter she published every month. I wrote the following piece called, “When Cancer Comes To Call.”
A few days before Christmas, our church had a candlelight communion service .
We’ve done this service every year since we’ve been here; it’s sort of a gift from our family to the church members as Steve and I lead in Christmas carols and he reads a specially chosen story to the congregation before we have communion.
Yesterday was Steve’s and my 31st wedding anniversary.
Although January 2 has been special in our lives for a long time, ten years ago that date came to have an added meaning in our lives because it was the day that Sarah was admitted to the bone marrow transplant floor of Duke University Hospital. (She was there almost a month.)
Last Thursday was Breast Cancer Awareness Day and all of Sarah’s classmates were encouraged to wear pink to school. Since Sarah is the Perpetual Princess of Pinkness, that was a pretty easy task for her to accomplish. She also donned a hat with her ensemble, since students were rewarded with $1 donated to breast cancer research for every hat worn.
