My wife informed me yesterday that the treatment is nearly 77 percent complete. It has definitely been a long road since being diagnosed with cancer. In fact, at the end of this month it will be a year since feeling the lump on my left side.
While going through cancer treatment, I've definitely experienced significant physical and emotional pain, but I have also found myself searching for meaning throughout this life trial. Despite losing over a year of my life fighting this diseases, I've certainly experienced many blessings and joys in having cancer.
Obviously, my number one joy is knowing that God was with me – and still is – during this time.
And who can ask for a better partner and helpmate than my wife, Teresa. Throughout this whole ordeal, Teresa displayed amazing strength and fortitude as she led me through the health system vortex to ensure that I received the best care.
Then there is you…
Family, friends and co-workers who selflessly supported me throughout this ordeal. I cannot say enough of how much I appreciate the loving hands around me. I may not have the biggest house or fastest car, but what I do have is far much better – You.
