I love Tammy Faye Bakker (now Messner) — she has walked through so much turmoil with so much strength and dignity. Every time I hear her speak I feel inspired. Tammy has been struggling with lung cancer for years (despite never having been a smoker), and a recent note she left on her website states that the doctors have stopped trying to treat it. As usual, Tammy’s attitude is upbeat and full of faith.
The doctors have stopped trying to treat the cancer and so now it’s up to God and my faith. And that’s enough! But please continue to pray for the pain and sick stomach … To those of you who are suffering as I…..”don’t give up”!! Make up your mind you’re going to LIVE !! That is NOT EASY! The path gets so long. I look at young people and wish with all my heart for just one day of “feeling great”. You see, God gives out his promises, they do not lie, they do not fail. We do not have to BEG him for them, they are FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love you, Tammy! You and your family are in my prayers. Thank you for the message of love you have always carried.
