Hello Monica,

Sweetie I know what you're going through but you need to hang in there for your family. I too was tired of going through the Chemo and thinking of what's ahead, but I've learned not to do that. You need to just take it one day at a time and just let God lead you. He alone holds your life in His hands. Good thing is... you're almost done with Chemo and then your surgery. Don't be afraid of having the surgery. Pray that nothing has spread and that they'll remove the least lump nodes possible. You really don't need to do reconstruction right away unless "you" want too. God willing you won't need to do rediation either. All things are possible with Gods help Sweetie. Don't anticipate the worst, but pray for Gods miracle working power. You're always in my prayers.

Hey Monica,

It was nice seeing you yesterday. After talking with you and reading you last comment it is clear that the emotional effects of having this disease have finally hit you. Although I have never been in your position, I can sympathize with the stress, fear, and feelings of loss you must be experiencing. And I believe it is only natural to feel this way at this time. And just doing what you need to do is o.k. if that is what gets you through the days while you are fighting this disease. I also think that your strength and faith will be key tools in fighting the cancer. You do look great despite how you feel. Talk to you later.

Hey Monica,

I just read your last post and had to comment. I can't even begin to imagine how you must feel, but I want you to know how proud I am of you. Just the fact that you could "do what needed to be done" is a testament to your strength and faith. I'm sure the road ahead is scary, but just look at how far you've come. This is your fifth of six treatments and you are doing so well. You have made decisions that no woman should ever have to make, but you did what needed to be done, and I know that Sol and little Kai are grateful to have you as a result. You have made it this far and I know you will get through the rest. As usual, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Hi Monica,
Just keep taking one day at a time, and don't let our enemy steal your joy in each moment. I KNOW that's easier said than done, but I also know that with His strength, you can get thru this. No weapon formed against you can stand, and you can do ALL things thru Christ who gives you strength. Do lkie Jesus did, and just keep quoting scripture to that sorry old satan. Many are praying for you. Hang on to Jesus and hang tough. We love you in the Lord.

Be assured that He is there.


Down in my life where it’s restless and wild,
Down in my life where the adult’s a child,
Down in my fears and worries and care
Suddenly Jesus is there.
Touching my heart strings He sings me a song,
Quiets the child till she’s steady and strong,
Banishes worries – just smiles them away
Turning my night into day.

Down in my life where the troubles run deep,
Down in my life when I can’t get to sleep,
Down in my life when life isn’t fair,
Suddenly Jesus is there.
Rebuking the turmoil He sends it away,
Gives peace in the panic and helps me to pray,
Turns sorrow to praising, surprises my pain,
And bids me to face life again.

Down in my life where I’m lonely and old,
Deep in my heart when my spirit is cold,
Down in my life when I don’t know what’s best
Suddenly Jesus gives rest.
“Gift doesn’t age” He remarks with a smile,
“I’ll set your soul dancing and make life worthwhile,
I’ll guide you in righteousness: wisdom’s delight:
And nerve your faint heart for the fight.”

He stands in my shadows and the light on His face
Reflects all His love and His mercy and grace
Right down in my life where nobody goes:
Deep in “this” heart the Lord knows.
Down in my life where it’s restless and wild,
Down in my life where the adult’s a child,
Down in my soul I’m acutely aware
Suddenly Jesus is there!

Oh Monica...my heart goes out to you. I don't know how it would be possible to do what you are doing and have the kind of strength you do without the Lord. He gives us the strength to press on. And because of this trial it will bring you to a richness with Jesus that you never would have had if life stayed simple. He has good things in store for you and wants to carry your burdens so toss them at His feet and be free!! You are precious and such an awesome witness. May God bless you and the days to come.
Love, Jenn Allen

    Our hearts are saddened by Monica’s passing. It’s difficult times like these I just don’t know what to say,
    other than Peggy and I will continue to pray for you and your family.
