Cancer is a worldwide disease that affects countless people around the world.
Chances are, almost everyone either has been personally affected by cancer or knows someone who has.
In fact, nearly 40 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. That is a staggering statistic.
Cancer brings devastation with it, and we do what we can as human beings to cope with the horrible variations and extremities of the disease.
Sometimes the best we can do is provide loving and prayerful support for our friends and family that battle cancer, like one Chick-fil-A manager in North Carolina that stopped in the middle of his service to pray for one of his employees.
The manager asked everyone in the restaurant to stop and pray for Ms. Trish — an employee undergoing surgery for breast cancer.
It’s the moments where people take special time to share their love and support that truly brings tears to our eyes.
Recently, students from Bush Elementary School in Stockton, California, gathered in support for their school principal, Ms. Aissa.
In a video posted by Fox 40 News, the young students all stood in a crowd of peers and teachers outside holding pink breast cancer ribbons on sticks that they cut out and made themselves.
As Ms. Aissa stood up front surrounded by other co-workers, tears streamed down her face as she realized what the members of her school were about to do.
Her colleagues and students all surprised her and stood to support her during her battle with breast cancer, singing a touching rendition of the song “Lean on Me.”
In times of trouble, we all need somebody to lean on and support us in our battles.
Thank you to the teachers and students in Stockton for reminding us all of the blessings that people provide us in times of need.
Our love and prayers go out for Ms. Aissa as she bravely continues her battle with cancer.
