My good friend from high school, Allison Maken, her son died from Leukemia when he was 5...just 5 years old. My niece just died from Leukemia yesterday, she was just 3 years old. Why Cancer? Why does God take children away at such a young age when they have their whole lives a head of them? Why don't they take us? I had to watch my sister, who is the STRONGEST person I know, say good-bye to her youngest daughter and bury her. I had to watch Jillian((my niece)) go through chemo and radiation and I had to watch my sister watch her daughter die. This isn't fair. My friend Allison, who is the most FAITHFUL women I know, had to let go of her oldest son, James. Allison prays all day, goes to church every Sunday, sends her children to Catholic school and sends them to Sunday school. She asks me "Why did this happen to us?"
What do I tell her? I have no experience with this and these two women are my best friends.
