HER STORY

Mrs. Garrett believes God guided her way through her difficult time.

"Everything fell into place at the right time."

When she worried she wouldn't have money for gas to drive to appointments, money or gas cards would arrive in the mail from Good Samaritans and the American Cancer Society.

"It was just like walking in heaven," she said.

HER ADVICE

"Thank God for the good as well as the bad. Please be patient with the nurses and doctors."
