Unfortunatley Imogen lost her fight and died May 2005. The cancer had spread to her brain by December. She was by friend and I miss her. I hope that this helps people become more aware of this horrrible disease.

Have faith. I have seen first hand that God heals even the most deadliest of diseases. I have experienced God contradicting what the doctors and the evidence said and bringing my cousin back to life even though she was on life support for months and was pronounced clinically dead. This was exactly 1 year ago, today she is alive, walking and talking. God heals!

I wrote the following while undergoing radiation for Prostate Cancer in 2001. LIVING WITH CANCER L et's face it, having cancer is never any fun I t can be a nightmare for almost everyone V erily, it's the fear of it that will do the most damage to you I f you can control that, you'll live longer and happier, too N ever stay with "Crepe Hangers" with their tales of woe G et together with optimists and keep yourself on the go WITH God's blessings you're sure to get well C all on Him, He'll listen to what you have to tell A nd with the latest technology better cures are always being found N ow you'll find the one that will get you around C are for yourself and keep yourself looking good too E very day enjoy the pleasures that will come to you R emember, your fondest dreams may yet come true
