It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Wendy Armour, who courageously fought a long battle with #cancer.

Wendy’s positive spirit and legacy will live on through the work of the Foundation. She will be dearly missed. ❤
Today. August 16, 2018. I completed chemo 16/16 and I AM OFFICIALLY DONE WITH CHEMO! ✨🙌🏻
This journey was 5 months. 5 months of continually pumping poison in my veins to kill a tumor that was trying to kill me. 5 months of dealing with annoying side effects. 5 months of having to spend practically every weekend in bed, out of the sun and away from germs. 5 months of crying myself to sleep more times than not. 5 months of seeing myself with a bald head all the while losing my long lashes, my eyebrows, and my “normal” appearance I used to criticize but now find so incredibly beautiful.
5 months of leaning and pressing more into Jesus than I ever have had to before. 5 months of trusting his goodness despite what my eyes were seeing and my body was feeling. 5 months of being blown away about the friend and caregiver and absolutely rockin’ husband I have. 5 months of leaning just how much strength and grace I have, all because my God faithfully gave it to me each and every day. 5 months of getting to the reality of the hope I have in Jesus and how I have nothing apart from him imprinted in my heart. 5 months of learning deep lessons on my identity, my worth, and my call. 5 months of connecting with other breast cancer warriors all over the world and being inspired because they are truly the strongest people I’ve ever known and their strength kept me going each day. 5 months of surrender, of trusting, and choosing faith.
Not one part of this journey has been “easy” and there’s still so much to go... but guys. God is carrying me. He is bringing my heart peace when everything surrounding it is straight chaos. I never thought I’d be here, done with chemo. But I am. And I’m still smiling. And I’ve never known true JOY like I do. Joy that doesn’t depend on my circumstances. I am convinced to the core of my being that my God has always been and will always continue to be good.
On to the next mountain... surgery! ✨
