Carrying the Torch for Ovarian Cancer


My sister, Penni Bourque, pictured above with her daughter Michelle, is currently undergoing another round of chemotherapy for the ovarian cancer that she has been battling for the past three years. Her cancer is spreading again and is at a stage beyond surgical treatment.

Penni has also been part of a remarkable ovarian cancer support group at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. The Medical Center recently published a book about her support group under the title "Torch: Tales of Remarkable Hope and Courage, edited by Becky Teter with a forward by Baylor Medical Center Chaplain Jan Aldredge-Clanton.

Here's a link to the website that is under construction for the book. The webmaster is Penni's husband David.

Prayers for Penni would be greatly appreciated.
