So how do I even start? A month ago, on Mother's Day to be exact, my family and I decided to stop all chemo and any further treatments for my cancer. We are going to allow the disease to take it's course. This was an incredibly difficult decision for everyone, but the chemos seem to be causing more damage than good. My bone marrow has been saturated by cancerous cells and all chemo will do is prolong the process. I have spent the last 3 years fighting hard and giving my all, but the time has come to let go.
I have no fear of returning home and look forward to seeing the generations of friends and family I have on the other side, including my son Nathanael. I know that I will still have a part in my family's lives here on the earth and though I have cried buckets of tears and will miss my family immensely, I know this is God's will and that is my greatest desire to fulfill His will.

Becki's motivation to keep going!
Follow Becki's Journey
This blog is a way for Becki's family and friends to follow her journey through her fight with multiple myeloma. This way, we can keep everyone updated without overwhelming Becki with phone calls. If you would like to send her your love and concern, you can e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to comment on any of the blog posts, these will be forwarded to that same e-mail account.
In this blog, we are documenting the journey that Becki began a year and a half ago when she started to get sick. We have posted entries in chronicle order. If you would like to start from the beginning, you can click on the post labeled "What is going on here??" under November 2008 in the blog archive list below.
