The devastating diagnosis of stage 4 terminal breast cancer rocked Lindsey Gritton’s world to its core.

Lindsey’s Cancer Battle Begins
One week later, she had an induction to give birth to her daughter Savannah Grace to begin fighting cancer through aggressive cancer treatments. Even with the treatment plans, her doctors said it wouldn't make a difference, and she needed to help prepare her family to cultivate a life without her. Lindsey clung to her faith and prayed God would do the impossible.
In the meantime, she focused on creating as many memories as possible with her daughters and her husband, Spencer. Lindsey’s primary goal was not just to survive but to thrive, making lasting memories with her loved ones.
“I was taking in every second, trying to soak up everything,” Lindsey said. “I made a scrapbook, I wrote letters to my kids, I made videos, everything. I was trying to do everything I could.”
Chemo, a formidable foe in itself, claimed Lindsey’s hair, but it never touched her spirit, and her unwavering faith in God was her ultimate healer. She faced the trials of treatment with grace and resilience, all while cherishing the precious moments with her family.
This mom, who was given just months to live, leaned on faith in the face of a terminal diagnosis and gets a miracle.
