$100 could help provide a breast cancer patient with one-on-one peer support from a trained volunteer breast cancer survivor.

$150 could help connect a trained patient navigator to a cancer patient so they can understand their diagnosis and get the help they need.

$500 could help provide a cancer patient and their caregiver with five nights of free lodging at an American Cancer Society Hope Lodge® community when their best hope for effective treatment is away from home.

Molasses describes her beautiful, ebon skin and her sweet nature. However, I bestowed this nickname upon her in 2009, when I learned that it accurately describes her pace. My hurried movements and verbal warnings are null and void when I stress the importance of going. From my lips to her ears, she’s determined that a slow, steady pace is appropriate. And that’s one of the many reasons why I love her! At the tender age of 4, she already knew that “slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when” God’s “vision will be fulfilled.” (Habakkuk 2:3, TLB).

Yesterday, she celebrated 10 years of life and I thank God for allowing me to see her mature. I am overjoyed to introduce you to my Goddaughter/Molasses/Angel/Future Spelman Sister, Erin N. Johnson. I pray that her testimony will give you hope to believe in God’s vision for your life.
