Updates for Miss Vanessa

Hello Calvary Kids, Parents, and friends! Thank you for all of your prayer and support as I go through treatment and live with my diagnosis of cancer. It is a journey. God has been faithful through every step and I know that He will use even this for His purpose. I am getting married this week! I pray that my church family can attend and I look forward to the future and blending two families together. We continue to live each day and cancer has not taken the joy of the Lord away by any means. We work around my treatments and the tiredness that follows and it has been good. This coming week I will have my 4th treatment. My progress has been good and my oncologist is pleased. We will continue on with Chemotherapy as I prepare for surgery. Thank you for your continued prayer. I will continue to see you at church as the Lord allows and my health remains strong!
