When Carol Benson was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, she said a simple prayer: “God, I don’t know what’s happening, but I trust that you do.”

The Dos Vientos mother of two also asked God to remove the cancer from her body. God answered that prayer, Benson said.

After nine months, she was on the road to recovery. And her trust in God was deeper than ever.
