this is why i have truly amazing friends and the reason i write this blog


what's up man? Long time no talk. I haven't seen you in awhile, but read your blog daily and am truly inspired by your courage and fight. It's very humbling when I think about the many things I used to stress about at work and in my personal life and then compare it to the challenges you experience every day. Sadly I have a colleague who I've worked with for years who was recently diagnosed with brain and lung cancer. Just as I told her, God is just testing you to see how strong you are. Make sure you continue to fight and show him how serious you are about beating this sucker! Only the strong survive and I have no doubt you have the strength to keep on fighting and ultimately win. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. As evident by the comments on your blog, you have an amazing supporting cast and we all look forward to seeing you get through this.

As Jimmy Valvano one said "Cancer (ALS) can take away all my physical ability. It cannot touch my mind; it cannot touch my heart; and it cannot touch my soul. And those three things are going to carry on forever. Don't give up, don't ever give up".
All the best!-Chris
