I need your prayers again.

I mentioned my nieces tests being positive on her pap. Well, my sister just called and told me that she has cervical cancer. I don't know what to do now. She is 34 with 3 young kids. All I know so far is that she will have to have surgery and then chemo after. Why do things like this happen to good people??

Prayers coming TG. Hopefully they caught it early and they will be able to completely eradicate it. HUG!

I am so sorry to hear that horrible news. But the progress they have made in treatment is very promising.
As for why do things happen to good people, You would have to speak to a much higher power than those of us here. But if you find the answer to that question, let me in on it because I have wondered that for years.

I'm praying that it has been caught in time and surgery and a little chemo is all it will take. She is VERY good at going annually and this is the first one that has come back positve on the squamus cell and HPV.

texas girl, i asked my mom the same question. why do things like this happen to good people. she told me this. "God gives us trials to help build our character." i asked my mom why god lets innocent children starve. she told me that maybe god does that to see what humanity is going to do. to see if humanity will actually do something about the problem or see if humanity will give up and say " well god, this is your doing not ours so you fix it." maybe he wants to see how much effort and faith we are going to put forth to make it work for the best. I do feel for her. I know how you feel. i have to watch my mom surfer with a terminal illness that cant be cured and she is not getting better. It takes courage and alot of emotional support from every one to help get through these tough times. Be grateful for the modern medical technology we have that can help with the situation. I know i am. lol.. well best of luck and ill pray for you and your family to have strength and comfort.. vest of luck

I am praying for your niece also. Hopefully you will hear good news soon.

A health hint for the ladies--don't use powders with talc in them (on babies either), as it has been shown to cause cervical cancer. Plain old corn starch makes a great powder (that is what I used for baby powder when my daughter was a baby).
