Cross # 9.4314


St. Petersburg, Fl


I received my cross from my cousin. She purchased it for me as a form of encouragement. At 24 years old, I was recently diagnosed with a rare auto immune disorder. Slowly, I am on my way back to a normal life!


It is my faith in God and my family and friends that allowed me to keep a positive attitude throughout my illness. This cross serves as a great reminder that God is with us no matter what, no matter the circumstances. I was a perfectly healthy 24 year old young woman when I received my diagnosis almost two months ago and in one day, my life changed completely. Like the card accompanying the cross says, I like to think that I am now “perfectly flawed”.  My illness is just a new part of my life; life carrys on; God is with me each step of the way.
