Not to many can say they climbed it.
But we WILL!
We WILL climb through each stage, rest along the way, embrace those and that around us, share the journey at each point mile post, and SURVIVE this mountain, Big "C"!
Our fireman son has been diagnosed with cancer. A couple months ago, what began like any other check, transformed into this rare cancer. Let's just say we are very, no VERY scared. He will have a lengthy, severely RISKY surgery on the 20th. Please, can I ask you all to keep him in your prayers. Right now it is in God's hands and of course the surgeon.
I must say the fire department and their whole organization has been wonderful. As parents, we couldn't be more at ease of the out of this world care, support, blessings, and most of all the love he is receiving. During our many talks and visits, making plans, dotting I's and crossing T's, all those who have stepped up to relieve of us of the many burdens, our appreciation and thanks seems to not be enough.
I will keep you all updated as often as possible. This is so hard on all of us, please understand.
