The Colors of Cancer

Layers of Love

A pearl grows when a rough, irritating piece of sand is trapped within the tender flesh of an oyster. The oyster forms layer after layer of protective shell around the irritant until it is transformed into a beautiful pearl.

Cancer is the irritant we need to surround with layers of love and support. You and your prayers are the layers of protection for a cancer patient.
