Former student’s cancer reflection is a testament to a faith-filled life, teacher says

On page 12 of the March 5 issue of The Criterion, Shirley Vogler Meister’s column was a reflection on Catholic schools.

On page 13 of the same issue, the “My Journey to God” submission was a reflection on living with cancer by Marsha Kane of St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Bloomington.

Marsha (Mena) Kane was a student in the first class that I taught—the fourth grade at Our Lady Queen of Peace School in Washington, D.C.

Several years ago, she found me online and, since that time, we have been in frequent contact. Her reflection on how she is dealing with a devastating diagnosis is a testament to a faith-filled life.

Just maybe her years in Catholic schools helped form her into the courageous woman she is today.
