Thoughtful Thursday: Prayers for Renee

Months ago I met a woman that should be known by everyone. Renee is an inspiration to anyone who has any sort of illness, who wants to be courageous, or who simply wants to tell it like it is. Renee writes a blog, CirclingMyHead, about her battles with cancer, general family information and many other fascinating things. Please check it out, you'll soon realize just how special Renee is.

Renee has final stage breast cancer which has spread to her stomach and bone marrow. She is in her final battle, in hospital to control the pain and allow her to get fluids and nutrition.

Renee is an incredible woman. Her forthrightness with everything, including her illness and her thoughts, fears, hopes and wishes is commendable to the utmost.

Renee is from a large, loving family that is also dealing with the recent loss of one member to a very rare cancer (Sheldon, in his 20's), she just lost her mother, and her sister is also struggling with terminal brain cancer.

Please keep Renee and her family in your prayers, they certainly need and deserve them.

Renee, in the short time I have known you, you have become invaluable to me. I love you and I salute you as a free person. Go with God in peace.


  1. What a nice tribute to your friend. I wish her the best.


  2. Oh Meg, It's all so sad to see that ugly cancer bitch at work claiming another wonderful soul. We are all are touched by it on a daily basis, some more than others. It is heartbreaking to see our families go through so much pain. I wish you and your friend God's love, peace, comfort and prayers at this time and always...

  3. That was beautiful Meghann. Thats how we met was through Renee. Funny how she brought us together and not knowing you would be so helpful in what was soon to be diagnosis of fibro. for me.

    Having better days, just not this week...but that will happen.

    I hope you have been well?


  4. Lovely tribute to Renee. My thoughts are with her too.
