This has been a truly trying year. The good, I was blessed with a beautiful grand-daughter. But my daughter and her husband have had and are still enduring a very traumatic and brutal year. My son-in-law was diagnosed with mouth cancer.
He is a non-smoker, non-tobacco user of any sort. He has a history of cancer from 9 years ago, Hodgkin's Lymphoma, that he beat and was cancer free for 8 years. Which according to doctor stats, that usually means your clear. But to our dismay, he contracted this mouth cancer, not once but twice.
He showed signs of a mouth sore in May, by the time the doctors actually sent him to be treated for suspicious signs, the cancer had spread. By the beginning of September, treatment (radiation therapy and surgical removal) was completed; the new baby was here and we thought all was well. But to no avail, the cancer had come back even more aggressive.
This time the doctors decided to be just as aggressive and treatment began with chemotherapy, (last time they had only treated with radiation therapy & surgery) and followed up with more surgery. At this point we are awaiting post surgery follow-up and praying this young family does not need to endure any more suffering.
Please pray for my family that cancer's ass is kicked! and life can go back to somewhat of a normal life free of suffering.

Due to unfortunate circumstances I am forced to start over financially and being a fairly new grandma with a 2nd grandchild on the way, I am looking for a work from home source of income.
