Heather, my sister’s girlfriend, is a lovely woman who was told this year she had cancer of the cervix that had spread throughout her body. After three rounds of chemotherapy, they told her the cancer was terminal. The doctors told her they would put her on a new kind of chemo that would prolong her life.
But when she and my sister were at the hospital, one of the technicians said, “We shoot Heather with glucose, because cancer loves sugar and lights up so then we can see it on the scan. My sister said, “If cancer loves sugar, why don’t cancer patients stop eating sugar?” He scoffed at that and said, “Everyone needs sugar.”
Well, Heather has gone on a no-sugar diet and guess what? Her tests are showing the cancer is dying! She is healing! Will this be an absolute cure? We don’t know yet, but it sure looks good. We are all over the moon with happiness.
This no-sugar diet was not easy for Heather. She used to drink soda pop all day and have lots of candy. No more. She has a lot of protein and complex carbs. She is very, very happy at this result.
We just want to praise and thank the Lord for all of this. We know he leads us when we ask him. Heather was ready to die, as I wrote about earlier. She gave her life into his hands and was at peace. Like the Psalm says, “Even if I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.”
