Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves received from God." 2Corinthians 3-4

Our mission is to love, support and serve those who have been affected by cancer in any way and to share with them the hope found only in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

I'm so excited to announce the upcoming events we have planned for our monthly Support Nights!

September 12- COUPONING 101 - Life is expensive!  Life during and after cancer is especially expensive!  Come learn the basics of saving money with coupons.  We will have light refreshments, loads of fun and fellowship and even a few door prizes and some coupons to get you started!

November 14 - JOURNALING - Getting your thoughts and feelings out on paper is a helpful tool in dealing with cancer and life in general.  We will show you different forms of journaling and help you get started on your own journal.  Record your days, your emotions, meaningful scriptures, prayers and inspirational quotes :) More details to come later! 

December - Christmas party and/or Mission opportunity at Hope Lodge Birmingham - More details to come later!

What a great night we had!  We got lots accomplished on our new project...Survivor Bags!  We have Survivor Tshirts donated to us from Relay for Life and we are turning them into bags.  These bags will be filled with items such as crackers, hand sanitizers, puzzle books, tissue, chapstick and a book called Facing Illness with Hope.  Once we get it all put together we will take them to the cancer centers to give to patients on their first day of treatment.  We are so excited about these bags!

Mr. John Landers

Sweet sweet Mr. John Landers has gone to be with our Lord.  He and his wife Betty helped get the Cancer Care Ministry started with their faithful attendance and insight.  I loved listening to John talk so passionately about eating a natural healthy diet to combat cancer.  John gave Jim and I friendship, encouragement and advice that we will cherish always.  I did not know John before Cancer Care started in May 2012 and I am so grateful to have had the 8 months I had to get to know him.  His life, love and friendship have touched my heart and I feel like I've known him forever.  John will be greatly missed, by Jim and I, the Cancer Care family and everyone who knows him.  I thank God for blessing me with such friends as John and Betty Landers.  Please continue to remember Betty, their sons, and the rest of their family in prayer. 
With love,

Prayer Request

Please pray with us for our dear friends John and Betty Landers.  John is in the hospital and has been put on Hospice care.  John and Betty have been with us since the start of this ministry and are so dear to our hearts.  The family has asked that no phone calls be made to the hospital room and are only accepting 2 visitors at a time.  I will update with any information that I recieve.  Pray for John, Betty and their family and friends.
