3 Strikes and she's NOT OUT!   |   Wednesday, August 25, 2010





You've all heard the baseball adage, "Three strikes and you're out!".... but when it comes to cancer, there are no 'outs', there is no giving up, there is no end of the inning, there is only a continued desire to fight and win the ugly thing called cancer.

Battling cancer is definitely a team effort, with Doctors and nurses assisting in the fight, being the 'trainers and coaches', but the real team is family and close friends. Sabrina M. has a team like that... she's got a huge team that's behind her, praying for her, helping her, encouraging her, and loving on her. Sabrina has been diagnosed for the THIRD time with a recurring breast cancer...she's had surgery, chemo and radiation and now she's starting it all over again. Why does this continue to haunt her? What is God trying to teach us through this? Like a baseball team struggling through a losing season, it sometimes seems as though we'll never catch up, never win...BUT, Sabrina has FAITH on her side. She believes that her God is a BIG God, and says that "He still does miracles and that He will never give me something that I can't handle". Faith is believing in things we can't see or understand. She has faith in her team... "My family and friends keep me going. It was pretty upsetting, being diagnosed the third time', but she presses on... with laughter, her bold and saucy attitude and a desire to win this fight. She may have three strikes, but this brave lady certainly hasn't lost the game.
