My beautiful sister, Leonie, needs prayers and good thoughts. I facetimed with her yesterday and was shocked and very concerned about how she was looking. Sadly, her cancer appears to be back and she is once again undergoing chemo. This is leaving her very tired and the chemo fog is taking it's toll on her too.
For those of you reading this that may not know my background, my sister came to live with us when she and I were in high school. She came from Tahiti up to school in Hawaii and things did not work out for her to stay with her family members there, so my mother invited her to come live with us. Even though she came kind of like a foster sister, she quickly became part of the family and my parents even did a "statement of parenthood" once she turned 18 since they could not legally adopt her.
My sister means the world to me and I love her beyond words. We are trying to keep her spirits up and planning for a visit when she is up here on the mainland again this Fall. Oh how I wish I could just reached through the computer screen and given her a huge hug today. My heart was just breaking for her and still is. Please keep her in your prayers for healing and the strength to get through this quickly.
Mahalo Nui (thank you very much)
