10 Years Living Strong!!

Today marks 10 years that my sweet husband has been "living strong" cancer free. 10 years ago Ben was diagnosed with Epithilioid Sarcoma. It is a rare form of sarcoma and is hard to detect in the early stages. Luckily, Ben found his tumor while it was still small and was able to be treated successfully. It wasn't easy - and he has a major battle scar to be proud of - but he has made it 10 years and I thank God every day for curing Ben and allowing us this wonderful life together. As the article I linked above states, recurrence after the initial diagnosis is very common, but Ben has made it this far without that and we are so thankful. Thank you, Lord, for blessing Ben with good health. We pray that he has many, many more cancer free years! The picture above is of Riley's hand on Ben's scar. It was taken when she was only 4 weeks old. How sweet!
