My daughters sent it to me. I am 81 years old and recently found out I have colon/rectal cancer. Through all my years I have been very healthy. Minor aches and pains but thats all. My husband passed away 2 years ago and since that time I have been able to live alone. I am to being chemotherapy and radiation this month (September) and my daughters thought this cross could help me through the bad days. I will carry it with me to my treatments and pray with it daily. The power of pray will get me through this period of my life.
