some nights. You know, before I went to sleep, I actually cried. I don’t know why, but I was just so scared that some days I wouldn’t make it. But 12-year-old Courtney Ford survived. Her scary two-year battle with cancer is now over. The girl from Birmingham was diagnosed with leukemia in 2019. She underwent her last round of chemotherapy at the Children’s Hospital last month and is now cancer-free. Tell me, how do you feel now? I feel really good and really relieved. Did you ever think you would lose your daughter? Yes I did that. But I had realized who God was, he was still out of here. The first few nights I was skiing when she got home. I kept waking up, but it lasted. Nam God, you know, come down. The cancer diagnosis was a hard pill to swallow for Courtney’s father, Walter Ford. In a matter of two weeks, I lost this pounds, and it was hard for me to explain to her what was going on. I had to see a doctor to tell her she really didn’t know what was going on. When you say you’ve lost a lot of weight. You’re just stressed. I couldn’t eat. I could not do it. I couldn’t believe it had happened to my daughter and I couldn’t function at work because I thought about it. Sometimes it worked. I’ve been to a different zone. Ford was there for his daughter. During her journey. He even cut his hair to support her when she lost her hair to the chemo. I felt really sad because when I went out in public everyone would stare at my hair, and I was just happy to have someone else who still has the same stylish me to this day. She still has my hair. I have her, we have it in the bag and she grew up with stockings on her hair. Stop growing small and problems that never could until I become a bomb. They both said they have learned to cherish life more. I just want to tell all the kids going through it right now never to give up and keep going. You know you are not alone here.
