The Light That Shines

     Jill Bzreznski-Conley was diagnosed with breast cancer one day before her 32nd birthday, a mere six months after she married the man of her dreams.  After two short years of remission, her cancer has spread to her bones and is stage four, terminal.  How my heart breaks for this beautiful young woman and her husband.
     Jill was invited to Paris by photographer Jill Bryce to tell her story and to encourage women to go for early detection screenings.  Jill Bryce says of this amazing video, "This is not a story about cancer.  This is a story about love, and it's a story for all."
      Jill twirled in pale pink tulle in front of the Eiffel Tower at dawn, she laughed in the Louvre, paid tribute to her husband on the Bridge of Love, and bravely shared her scars.
     Go here to watch the touching documentary.  Go here to see the photographs.

     I shared my journey through breast cancer in my 31 Day Series: I Wear Pink.  
     We have a Savior who comes to us with nail scared hands to be with us with whatever scars we bear, with whatever wounds we carry, and whatever doubts we harbor.  We are engraved on His hands and by His stripes we are healed.
