"A Sister's Blessing, The Spirit Within," is an inspirational true-life story about an identical twin's journey with cancer. In the following chapters, you will be able to hear and feel the events that took place in her life. It is the heart-wrenching account of a family that witnessed firsthand what a disease can do to a person's body, mind, and soul. It begins to teach us that it is not in order to question why things happen, but to simply accept that they do, and that it is the unknown that makes us afraid. In my sister Charlotte's twenty-month journey you will further be touched by her strong faith and unrelenting will, her tools that allowed her to face each and every day. We learn how her faith gave her strength and patience to go on, and how it eventually took her to her glory! You will understand through her how each day can become a brand new awakening. In the two and a half year journey you will also read about the loss of a brother as well. You will witness how a brother's hope gave him the courage to hold his head up high each day. In the end, our family learned from Charlotte and our brother Bobby to never give up the fight. Life is an experience for all of us, and it is from experience that we learn and grow. We must make the most of what we have now and avoid living in the past or looking too far into the future. In the end, remember, no snapshot is better than the one we hold in our hearts!
