Cindy Hamilton will be having a double mastectomy on Wednesday…please show your support by posting a prayer or comment here.

You could have knocked me over with a feather.  On Thursday, my husband and I were planning on taking our granddaughters to my son’s Mexican restaurant.  When we walked in the door, I couldn’t quite process the fact that a group of my friends and family were sitting at a long table and smiling at me!  My youngest daughter had planned a surprise “no-mo chemo party” for me.  What a wonderful evening, sitting and enjoying my precious friends and family…..a perfect ending/beginning to this journey that God has sent me on. I just wanted to hug everyone and not let go!

How do I adequately say “thank you” to all of the people who have been and will continue to walk with me on this journey?  You have been God’s arms and legs to keep me company along the way.  The prayers, the cards, the food, the e-mails, the visits, the gifts……so many blessings.

Thank you to Christine for giving me the opportunity to share my journey through the eyes of faith.  Thank you to all of the women at WBC who have written comments and prayed for me along the way.  Your own journeys have increased my faith.  What a blessing you have been to me! You will always be close to my heart.  I will continue to write about my journey on my blog at and will post updates here at WBC.

This coming Wednesday, I will have a double mastectomy to get rid of the last traces of this cancer.  It’s really, OK. Jesus still has a tight grip on my hand.

I give thanks to my God for every remembrance of you.  Philippines 1:3


UPDATE FROM CINDY (Thursday): The surgeon found NO trace of cancer in my lymph nodes! So, he didn’t have to take any out! We are praising God!  I believe this is a real Miracle! I am so humbled by my God.

  • kristine says:

    “My child, be attentive to My Words; incline your ear to My sayings. Do not let them escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and HEALING TO ALL THEIR FLESH.” Proverbs 4:20-22 Remember: Jesus never turned anyone away. JESUS HEALED THEM ALL. And He also said we would do EVEN GREATER THINGS when He ascended into heaven. There IS no IMPOSSIBLE. Have Peace. Let your test become your TESTIMONY. May God make the surgical theatre Holy Ground and guide the hands of all who attend you. Rebuke EVERY BAD REPORT as wicked and false. EXPECT MIRACLES. Put on your armor (Ephesians 6). Be strong and courageous. The Lord is with you. xoxo

  • Christine Smith says:

    My grandma Rose had the same surgery. I was a kid then, and I still remember the time Grandma left her breast at the JC Pennny’s store. She was shopping at the store, trying on clothes and had removed her prosthesis breast. When she returned home she realized she had left it in the fitting room. She was so embarrassed she called my dad (her son) to go pick it up! Grandma had an amazing sense of humor and loved to tell this story for the next 40 years of her life. It was a season in her life and did not define her. She was not a cancer victim, cancer survivor, or cancer warrior…she was simply a woman who loved God and saw JOY in all things. May you be equally joyful in life.

    Much love,

  • Traci Pollard says:

    Cindy, you are an inspiration to me. Your never-waivering faith in the face of such a trying time has brought me to tears throughout this journey. Thank you so much for allowing us to experience God’s work in your life. We will all be praying for you on Wednesday.

  • Millie says:

    Dearest Cindy,
    What a beautiful moment of true friendship and love.
    I myself could have not gotten through without as you
    so beautifully put it “God’s arms and legs” that he sent
    my way! I will be thinking and praying for you as you go
    through surgery on Wednesday. As one of my angels who
    now is in heaven used to say to me all the time “Keep that
    beautiful smile never stop smiling!”
