HANNAH - from the Hebrew meaning, 'God has favored me'
For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord. Jeremiah 30:17
My name is Hannah and I have cancer. There isn't an explanation as to why I became sick. All I know is God has a plan for each of us and for each plan there is a purpose. Some of us know what our purpose in life is and others will never find it. Then there are those like me who accomplish it without even realizing it. My journey with cancer will not and has not been without purpose. It is through my illnes that I have helped doctors understand this disease a little more so they may find a cure. It is through my illnes that I have opened the eyes to those around me to how precious life really is. Something we all too often take for granted.
It is through my illness that some of those around me have realized that life is too short to be afraid of our feelings. My cancer has been beaten back by the power of love. It is the most powerful of emotions, one not to be afraid of, but to be embraced. To be loved by someone unconditionally and completely is to reach into your soul and feel warmth.
It is through my illness that I have shown there is no guarantee for the future--only dreams for it. Whether the future be just another day or another 75 years, we should all dream big and live fully everyday.
It is through my illness that I have seen the strong cry, only to find more strength.
It is through my illness that some of us who haven't talked to God in awhile have once again began to pray.
It is through my illness that I have joined the hands of those familiar to those of strangers, to form one long chain. I have already accomplished so much in such a short amount of time and each day I continue to touch the hearts of many.
That is my purpose. -Written by Miss Gina for our Hannah

From the day you were born I knew love like never before When I looked into your eyes You gave meaning to my life
I spent so many nights Holding you tight Our hearts, so close, it seemed That we could share our dreams
But my dreams for you were shattered As your little body was battered I watched my warrior fight Amazed by your pure light
Oh the tears Iíve shed Lying in your empty bed Wanting just one more night Holding you tight
Now your fight is done No more battles to be won Now youíre free to fly And I will see you in the sky
