My Aunt Lynn is my absolute HERO. She is literally like my second mother. I have always wanted to be like her in so many ways. Her house phone was the first number i ever learned. But the one thing the we both have a passion for is music, specifically the saxophone. She has taught me everything I know. She even bought me my first saxophone and i still play it to this day.
She did not like to go to the doctor, and we finally convinced her to go after we found this abnormal bump on her right wrist in the spring of 2012 ; it was the size of an M&M at the time. But between her postponing to go to the doctor until she actually went it grew to about the size of a boiled egg. We found out that it was a very aggressive form of cancer called sarcoma. Everyone was devastated, and the one thing about sarcoma cancer is that there is really no cause of it.. it just happens. So she decided to get her right hand amputated because the cancer was starting to spread.
I was in shock and devastated and became angry at God because I would pray all the time the God would heal her from cancer so she could play her saxophone again. I still remember the day I came into the hospital room after the procedure and I could barely breathe because I was trying to hold back the tears. But the cancer still spread so she had to go through chemo therapy and in the spring of 2013 she was done, the cancer was gone and everyone was happy.
We live in Georgia and she lives in Mississippi so for my 16th birthday in July I decided to spend my birthday with her. We had an awesome time that Wednesday, we left on Friday and the next day we got a disturbing call. My Aunt Lynn had a Stroke and hit her head on the bath tub. She was in the ER so we continuously prayed the God would heal her.
In November of 2013 [there was a day] I will never forget. I was performing at a game with the marching band and my parents called me out of the stands to leave early and we headed straight to Mississippi to see her. Her organs were beginning to fail her and she had slipped into a coma. We got there at 1:00 am, but it was too late – she had just died before we got there. I was so heart broken and I thought that the devil had won the fight and that God didn’t want to heal her – but He did. She was a strong believer in the Lord and all that He does. God did heal her – she was suffering and in pain and God delivered her from all that sickness and disease, because she is in Heaven now with both arms and no cancer.
I know that for a fact.
She was a Music teacher and a Biology teacher at Vicksburg High school in Mississippi. And she changed every life that she met. The school where she taught made a plaque in her honor. And at our church there’s is a $1000 dollar Scholarship given out every year in her name. So many people honor her and will never forget her because of the God fearing woman that she was. She truly was a fighter after all the pain that she endured she got something even greater and that was an eternity in Heaven.
