As Donna and I were driving down to the Georgia coast last Friday, we stopped in at the H&H for lunch. While there, my phone rang. My brother-in-law was calling to tell me that my little sister, Cathy had just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

I know that some of y'all are tired of seeing this site used for a church. I apologize. I've struggled for the past few days with whether or not to post this news. But I have seen and felt the power of the peach.

I honestly feel like this was discovered early enough to give the doctor's a pretty good chance of fighting this. My sister is holding up about as well as you could hope for.

To say that she and I are close would be a huge understatement. We've endured some pretty tough times and some real good ones together. From the time that we were both little kids, and all though high school we were often referred to as "the twins". She was basically my shadow - tagging along to many concerts, parties and other outings.

So many folks on this site to pray for, and they all need and deserve it. When you next lift your head to the sky, please include Cathy in your prayers.

Thanks,

"Rusty"

Rusty, comforting thoughts and prayers for health being sent out to Cathy and your family. Sounds like you two share the same type of closeness I share with my siblings so I can only imagine the pain this news brings you. Good to hear that an early diagnosis has been made here - sounds positive for Cathy's treatment and full recovery from this horrible disease. Peace on you all. Will keep the prayers on repeat (you are correct - the power of the peach is great!)

Harnessing all best thoughts & positive hopes for Cathy, Rusty -- early detection is crucial -- truly hoping that will make treatment & recovery as effective as possible

Hey there sweet family,

Rusty, we NEVER tire of this place being used as a church. In fact, after the tour buses no longer roll, my fondest wish is that the bonds we've formed here, the family we've grown, will be so strong that we'll still gather together here, ESPECIALLY to teach, and practice, peach.

It's a blessing that you've shared Cathy with us. Our thoughts, prayers, and positive healing vibes are focused on her ((Cathy)) ... and on all those knowingly and unknowingly in need.

Take care and know that you are loved,

Lana

Prayers given....

Rusty, don't forget to get her to UAB if it becomes more serious. I can't say enough for the difference they can make.

This site has gone after this particular abomination for quite a while now, Sister Jeanne leading.

Rusty and Donna,
From someone who has greatly benefited from the healing love and power of this place and from all of the incredible people here in the last 15 months, I send my love and best wishes first to your sister and her family, and to you as I know how hard this must be to deal with right now. As Lana said, as time moves ahead, the bonds, friendships, and love that we all have found and shared will hopefully continue. I know that most of the very best friends I have in this world are people who come here or who I have met through the music that we all love so deeply.
May the healing love that has sustained me and so many others during tough times now find its way to Cathy. Believe me, my friend, there is nothing we would not do for you if you need us - and as my mom loved to say, "Be strong and of good courage."
Peace always,
Willie Howard (from Mayberryetta, a suburb of Hot'lanta)

Rusty, much love, prayers of strength and guidance to your sister Cathy, you and your entire family.

Those that tire of the positive this site can do, need more of this site and all the splendid wonder it can offer if you ask me.

And how ironic, for you to be sitting in a place filled with complete unconditional love and giving that knows no end when you recieved the news...it's a small world isn't it.

Love the Bomberry family

Rusty, you got it brother, and it's no trouble. Prayers going up for her and for her complete healing. You stay strong, too.

By the way, I got a sister named Cathy, too.

Sending love and prayers to your sister, you and your families.

It's not easy. We got the shock of our lives when we found out that my 54 year old Aunt Denise had advanced ovarian cancer last July. To say that it throws life out of control on a dime is an understatement. But she's a fightin' girl and is not going to take this situation lying down.

Best of luck to your sister, will keep her on my prayer list. Aside from any course of treatment she chooses to take, her best defense is a great attitude and loving support from her family.
