RE: Dad Requests a Miracle for His Daughter May 11, 2008
Yesterday, the day before Mothers Day, my youngest daughter Megan (age 27)
called me with some very sad and upsetting news; she had just been
diagnosed with breast cancer via a biopsy. She is facing uncertainty: a
lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. The cancer is located at the top
of her right breast interior and there are two lumps, one centimeter and
two centimeter in size. She is frightened and needs your "good energy" and
loving support.
The first thing I did was say a prayer for a miracle to The Holy Spirit
who guided me through my own health challenge with cancer Lymphoma last
year (a 27 centimeter mass treated with 30 radiations and 7 chemotherapy
treatments with a 10 drug protocol) and Malignant Melanoma three years ago
(treated by surgery that left 75 stitches in my face). I know first hand
the mental and emotional challenges my daughter faces. The difficulty to
be experienced receiving radiation burns and chemotherapy that makes you
quite ill.

I also know about "good energy," prayers and love sent by friends and
family that helps to uplift you as you are walking down the healing path.
People do heal from cancers visit.

I would like to ask you for a favor - could you please send her a message
of support, love and paryers Thank you for caring and your help. She loves
animals as much as I love her. Every day, when I was going through what
she is going through I received rays of sunshine and hope by e-mail from
people all over the world, most whom I didn't even know, and they helped
me greatly.

I am sure you have heard that, "Laughter is The Best Medicine". A joke, a
good uplifting story inspired me when cancer came to visit in my life. I
would go to chemotherapy and my wife would bring the jokes we had received
that week and read them to me. I would laugh and laugh. I heard many
patients say, "Ill have what he's having!" On my healing team I had a
"Funny Bone Team" who kept me up with positive smiles and expectations.
Stories of others who achieved remission or remarkable recovery, I found
most inspirational, so if you know any please pass them on to Megan.

Please join my daughters healing team and let her know that you too care.

It is honor and privilege,
Michael Van Atta (Megan's Dad)

Prayers and positive energy go out for Megan and her family.  Being so young she should have the strength to endure the treatments. 

Hope all goes well for her,
