Day 273

I want to thank each and every one of you who congratulated me on my great news. It touches my heart that so many of my friends and family called, wrote, texted, treated us to dinner and all but wrote in the sky how happy and proud of me you are. I am so blessed to have had an army of support backing me up in my fight for life…which I won! There are not words enough to describe the gratefulness I feel to have been shown so much love. All I can say is thank you. Thank you for crying with me. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for loving me. You made the difference and I hope that I will show you that I will not take for granted this life that was spared. I will make a mark in history because I have a purpose and I believe that purpose is to serve God’s people. I am the Lord’s hands and feet and I will do whatever and go wherever there is a need. Thank you for giving me the courage to live without fear. Your prayers and encouraging words help me stand tall and feel that my survival is no accident but the divine plan of God. I have much to do and my goals in these next few months are to strengthen my body and mind for what God has in store for my future. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Love Always,

Sarah, You are a beautiful and courageous young woman. Your Sarah's Hope video which I got from a friend of a friend on Facebook just about left me in tears. A word or two about my wonderful darling wife are in order. Just over 13 years ago my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 37 weeks pregnant. The doctor who dropped the bombshell on us said: "come back tomorrow and we'll deliver this baby." My wife told him "no, but I'll come back in 3 days." In hindsight that is when she took charge, determined not to let cancer control her life. That was 13 years ago, and to this day she remains cancer free. And our daughter, she's a tall, beautiful (like her mom!) teenage girl. Thank you for sharing your story. It meant a lot to me. Keep the faith...peace be with you! Mark. P.S. to Kirk... The true measure of a man is not to be found when things are going well, but rather when he is faced with adversity. Keep your chin up dude! And hold on tight... it may be a bumpy ride.
