Cancer is so limited . . . .so they tell me
It cannot cripple love,
It cannot shatter hope,
It cannot corrode faith,
It cannot eat away peace,
It cannot destroy confidence,
It cannot kill out friendship,
It cannot shut out memories,
It cannot silence courage,
It cannot reduce eternal life,
It cannot quench the spirit,
It cannot lessen the power of resurrection
But it definitely tests these areas in your life
We have lost both my brother, Jesse Kelton Grover, age 32 & our niece, Jordanne Nichelle Perry, age 20 in the last few years . . . if your life has been touched by cancer, we know where you are coming from. Once the diagnosis is given, you are filled with fight, standing strong, being positive, hanging on to slim odds, believing by faith, & continuing on. Then the initial adrenaline wears off, life keeps going, even in the midst of it all, & you realize it may never be the same. You want to make the most of every moment but you still have bills to pay, laundry to fold, groceries to buy, & it all seems so meaningless. Jordanne, in the last year of her life, said, “I just wish we could go somewhere as a family where the weight of the world is off our shoulders. We can be together, make memories, & reminisce . . . I just wish.”
We want to provide that for you. We want to offer you the place to get away, not just for the cancer patient, but for the caregivers as well. Cancer doesn’t just affect the person diagnosed, it affects everyone around them. As caregivers we feel we need to be strong for them, and we do. But we also need to be able to walk around the corner, break down & cry, or scream at the top of our lungs, & know that it’s ok. We want to provide a safe, relaxing environment for you as a family to make memories, receive much needed rest, & experience healing & restoration by being in the beautiful Black Hills, in nature.
If I could take away your hurt & pain I would but I’m not able, dealing with my own, but I can take your hand, look you in the eyes, say I understand, & give you hope to continue.
There is a story in the Bible called the “Parable of the Talents.” The summary of the story is that a master gives 3 different servants a different amount of talents (coins) & then leaves. When he returns, he asks his servants what they have done with the talents he had given them. Two invested their talents & had a return of what was given them. The 3rd buried his talent in the ground, for fear that if he did anything with it, he would lose it. The moral is that we are to use what has been given to us in this life to help others, for good. I want what we as a family have gone through to be used to help others. We have been given a “talent of cancer” & desire for God to use it for His glory.
