I was so -- oh, I don’t know -- lifted up and I felt encouraged to go on. We talked and I ended up saying this cancer is not going to win, I will beat it, but that is not the end of the story. After another week of treatments and struggle, the very next Monday, again at 9AM, I got the call from Crystal.
How did she manage to call me that morning?? Wow, here is someone who had been struggling with her own battle with cancer yet still always greeted folks with a smile and a hug, calling and helping me fight the fight.
Well, the afterstory is that Crystal has now gone on to become an Angel of God and I think that her time with me was merely her training session. I think of her often and marvel at her spirit and devotion to God.
God bless Crystal the Angel. I am still amazed at her courage and willingness to reach out!
