Dear Babs

Dear Babs-

I hope your surgery goes smoothly today, my friend.  I will be thinking about you and praying for you.

I hope you know how much I admire the grace and humility with which you've handled all of this.  How you have not let either the diabetes or the cancer steal your joy.  How you refuse to back down.

You've kept your sense of humor.  And when you couldn't find anyone else out there who had experienced both Type 1 Diabetes and breast cancer, you decided to share your story.  Because, as you said, there has to be more women out there dealing with both diseases.

You have been through so much.  I can't even imagine how difficult this journey has been and will continue to be.

I can always count on you to be honest, and tell it like it is.

I am honored to be your friend.  Love you, Babs!



Friends, please keep Babs and her husband Jon in your thoughts and prayers.  And go check out Bab's Blog.  She seriously is amazing!


  1. I do and will continue to pray for her and Jon.

  2. Sending many prayers her way, she is truly amazing!

  3. Echo that, and sending prayers for a successful surgery!!!

  4. Read an update from her hubby, glad to hear Babs is doing okay after her surgery.

    Can't wait to meet her in just a few weeks!
