Almost One Year

It has been almost one year since we learned of the word Cholangiocarcinoma. Our world was turned upside down, chewed up and spat out. We were left to pick up the pieces and it is very difficult most of the time. I wake up thinking about cancer and I go to sleep thinking about cancer. I can only imagine what goes through Lauren's mind as well as the rest of my family. We pray every day that God will spare our daughter and let her live a wonderful, happy life. Mark and I would trade places with Lauren in a second. I went through the pictures I have taken in the last year and picked out a few to make a video. I didn't really know what I was doing, but I muddled through to make this for all of you. We've all been through a lot this past year, but here are some pictures of many of the good times shared mostly with family. There are a few with friends, like sweet Lisa and dear Sharon. Sorry to all of Lauren's younger friends. I'm not with her when she hangs out with you and she isn't the most eager picture taker. I didn't mean to intentionally leave you out. I'll make a bet that most of you you won't make it through the video without crying. I have watched it over and over while editing, and cry every time. I wanted to mention that the song used in this montage is "The Fighter" by Gym Class Heroes and I think you understand who the fighter is. Thanks for all of your support. I don't know what we would do without all of you. Here is to many more years with you, Wo!!! We love you.  

Thanks again.  Love, -Pam
