To the editor:

I want to thank my family, church family, friends, neighbors and my community for the many prayers, cards, phone calls and food which I received during my recent illness.

In October 2021, I was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer. After three surgeries and 18 weeks of chemo, on April 13, following an MRI and two CT scans, the preliminary report advised all was normal.

I also want to thank Dr. Jolitz and the medical team at HDH, as well as Dr. Jackson and Dr. Meier and all the medical teams at the University of Cincinnati Hospital and the UC Barrett Cancer Center, for their professional medical advice and kindness. They are also advising five weeks of radiation therapy as a precautionary measure, which will begin April 26.

I have always had a deep faith in God, and through all of this I have asked Him to guide me all the way. I have been reminded over and over again of the greatness of God. Not my will but His. He was my God before all this started, and He will be my God throughout Eternity.

Again, thank you all.

Betty Bishop
