On Tuesday October 11, 2011 Leanne (Chin) was diagnosed with breast cancer. This blog will follow her journey. It will share the peaks and valleys along the way. But it will also serve as a way to communicate prayer requests and praises. Join us as we partner with Chin and fight along side her for she "...can do all things through Christ who strengthens her." Phil. 4:13

The meaning behind Chin ... There is a Chinese restaurant in the Twin Cities named Leann Chin. While Leanne was attending a basketball camp in middle school, a fellow camper had a bag from the restaurant. This camper made the connection between the name of the restaurant and Leanne's name. And the nickname Chin stuck!

The last time ...

Today was Leanne's last radiation treatment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God has been so faithful to provide for all Leanne has needed over the past 10 1/2 months. And we know He will be faithful to continue to provide in whatever the future holds.

Today was the last time Leanne has to park here


The last time to walk in here


The last time to open this door


The last time to check in at this desk


The last time to wait in this waiting room


Congrats Leanne from the Radiation Oncologists!!


Now that radiation is done, Leanne will have a month off until an appointment with Dr. Bloom at the end of September. Please keep praying for Leanne. Pray specifically for:
  • Peace for Leanne as her treatments are done
  • God to keep healing Leanne
  • Wisdom for Dr. Bloom as he determines the next step for Leanne's treatment
  • Rest and recovery for Leanne in the coming weeks and months

5 left!

Only 5 to go! Leanne is definitely feeling the side effects ... Bummer. The fatigue has started to set in and Leanne is experiencing painful, blistering skin where they do the radiation. Please pray for her!

Here is a family pic from the Miller's, check out all that hair :) Leanne and Ryan had Leo dedicated at their church in Fergus Falls last weekend.


Please keep praying for Leanne:
  • Pray for the blistered, painful skin to heal quickly
  • Pray for the fatigue to subside soon
  • Pray for Leanne to have strength 
  • Pray for wisdom for Dr. Bloom as this segment of the journey comes to a close next week
  • Pray for Leanne, Ryan, and their families to continue to trust God's plan
  • Pray for this little guy to consistently sleep through the night for his Mamma's sake :) and Dad's too!


Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! To all who have helped with meals, rides, watching Leo, running errands, encouraging words, and prayers. Your help is MUCH appreciated!

Happy Anniversary!

Leanne and Ryan celebrate their 3rd anniversary today. They have been through more than most couples married for 30 years. Praise the Lord for his sovereign plan as he joined them in marriage 3 years ago. What an inspiration their marriage is! Check out Leanne's post HERE.

Radiation is going well thus far. Leanne is starting to feel tired, but would say that overall she is doing well. Here she is at radiation.


Please continue to keep her in your prayers. Pray for:
  • Peace as Leanne and Ryan discern what God has in store for their future
  • Minimal side effects from the radiation
  • For Leanne, Ryan, and their families to continue to trust God in this journey
Thanks to all who are helping out on the Care Calendar! We are so thankful for you!!!!!!
