“Therefore, we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.”
– 2 Corinthians 4:16
Cancer is a different ballgame in Chimbote. People who suffer from cancer in the barrios do so in their homes without access to Chemo and Radiation. The home care nurses can help, but it is obviously a very different picture of help than we’re used to seeing for those who have cancer. We met one person who looked like a concentration camp victim and one whose skin cancer was so bad that the nurse could see bone in one of her fingers.
This week, we pray for those in Chimbote and everywhere who suffer from cancer without access to hospitals.
