This is the post none of us ever want to have to write. Our son, in his mid-30s, has been diagnosed with two cancers, advanced and serious. We will leave for an out-of-state cancer specialty hospital within the next few days, if possible. If not within the next few days, as soon as he receives word that he will be admitted.

Our son has never brought us anything but the greatest joy. He is our miracle. He is kind, caring, smart, funny and talented. He began working when he was 16 and has never stopped. He graduated with two degrees and moved to Los Angles to pursue a dream he had since a young boy. He always knew what he wanted to do. Once in LA, he took on an additonal school loan for more specialized schooling in his industry, and he is still paying on it. He has been committed, never discouraged, and he never diverted from his goal. He has had opportunities for field-related jobs that would have paid him extremely well for his age, but would also take him away from his goal. He stayed broke for a very long time, but woke up happy everyday. He never complained. He still never complains. He worked hard and that devotion yielded two big, well-earned breaks over the past four years. His years-long goal would have started for him on June 24th, 2014. He has done nothing to bring his illness on himself. He has never smoked, has only an occasional beer or glass of wine, and has been married to a wonderful young woman for 2-1/2 months.
Our hearts are broken, but we are ready for a fierce fight, and we plan to win.
We believe in the power of prayer. If you have room on your prayer list for us, we will be forever grateful.
Thank you DJ♥ who sent the scripture, and to our family and friends who are so caring, loving, and most of all, prayerful.
