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!

Cancer free!

Thanks to the faithful in prayer who prayed over Leanne's appointments today.

Leanne met with Dr. Bloom today and he said every thing looks normal. Words we have not heard in a long time. Things look great. Leanne looks great. Normal! We are free to use the words cancer free and remission!! What an answer to prayer. We are celebrating today with more thankfulness than our hearts or words can even express.

Leanne also met with her Radiation Oncologist today and her skin is healing (another answer to prayer) and everything is looking great!

Praise God!

As the treatment phase of this journey is over, we wait for what is ahead. Leanne will meet with her surgeon, Dr. Johnson, in October to discuss reconstruction. But for now, we will remain thankful and trust God's perfect plan. Please keep Leanne in your prayers. Please pray for:

  • God's peace to be with Leanne as she moves out of the treatment phase
  • Wisdom for Dr. Johnson as he makes decisions regarding reconstruction
  • Continued trust in God's sovereign plan

Leo Here

Hey Team Chinnians,
It is me, little big guy Leo.  I just wanted you to know that my Mommy has a couple of follow up appointments later this week and she was wondering if you would pray for her.  She is feeling good and everything should be fine but she said that going to appointments always makes her nervous now.

I have been trying to help her not be so nervous by keeping her on her toes.  I like to switch up which foods I will eat each day.  She never knows which ones I will eat now.  I also like to keep her on her toes by scooting all over the place.  I can get to what I want and she keeps putting all of the good stuff (like the remote) up high.  

I better sign off, Mommy's cell phone is on the floor and I bet I can make it there before she sees me.  Thanks for loving on us and praying for my Mommy.  Look for an update later this week

Prayer Request

Leanne here with a random prayer request.  So my skin is still blistery and peeling.  It hurts so they are urging me to take pain medicine.  Regular advil and tyleonl are not cutting it so this morning I took the pain medicine they want me to take and it made me sick.  Now I do not want to take the pain medicine.
It makes me laugh that I went through 15 rounds of chemo and did not puke once, not even close.   but after taking a silly pain medicine this morning I puked.  Talk about funny!!!!
Please pray that either the pain medicine will sit right with my stomach in the coming days or that the pain would go away and I would not need it.
Thanks faithful warriors!
