In the past, I blogged about a good friend, a young woman who died last year after suffering from the worst form of breast cancer. A special scholarship has been established in her name at
Please consider supporting this wonderful cause in the name of a beautiful young woman who was taken too soon. I will provide details, but first, here are some of the blogs I wrote about Angela Wenzel:
God bless a brave young woman

She’s a pretty young woman with blonde hair and a beautiful smile.
Her name is Angie. Angie has been married to a nearly lifelong friend of mine’s son for about a year and a half.
Earlier this month, Angie had a double mastectomy. Some lymph nodes were also removed. Her relatives and friends hoped and prayed the worst was over.
But Angie developed severe headaches, and when the pain got too intense, she went to the hospital where she got more gut-wrenching news. The cancer has spread and she’s now fighting a brain tumor.
Friday night at the high school football game I worked at, I spoke with an older gentleman who has been through several bypasses. We agreed that modern medicine has made tremendous strides. But there are two sides to that coin. Despite all the funding and generous donations and ongoing research, there remain unsolved questions that leave far too many people asking why? Why? Why me? Why now?
Life isn’t even close to being fair.
Angie is 28 years old.
Meet Angie, who is fighting for her life

OCTOBER IS NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
Last weekend, I blogged about my friend’s daughter-in-law, who is suffering from the worst form of breast cancer.
Angie definitely falls into the category of patients diagnosed with cancer who use their sickness to try to help others.
Since learning of her cancer, Angie has been keeping a journal about her status. Please check out her blog and consider sending a supportive comment.
The not-so-happy holidays
Wednesday, Nov 26 2008, 03:06 PM
There is no perfect holiday. Everyone has a story about a situation, whether it be family-related, the loss of a job, or the death of a loved one that can make the holidays less merry.
This year, I lost a cousin to brain cancer. Last week, a former colleague of mine at the state Capitol died of brain cancer. He left a wife and two sons. He was 38.
This week, one of my wife’s co-workers arrived home to find her husband dead from a heart attack on their garage floor. And a good friend’s daughter-in-law, whom I have blogged about, Angie, continues to fight cancer. She’s endured a double mastectomy and now is battling brain and spinal problems.
There is no good time for all of this. But now is the worst. The obvious question is why? I don’t claim to know the answer. I suppose there is magic in the phrase, Count your blessings.??
Another question is how, how do you cope, especially at this time of year with the loss of someone dear and special. The ever-accessible Internet just might be of some help.
Goodbye and God bless you, Angie

Over the past several months, I’ve blogged about a friend, 28-year old Angie Wenzel, a courageous woman battling for her life. Tonight, there was just too much cancer, too much sickness to fight any longer.
God bless you, Angie. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your wonderful family.
Please, won’t you help? On behalf of the Wenzel family, your consideration is deeply appreciated.
