Cancer has long reaching, ugly tentacles. No one is spared it touching a life close to them, at some point, at some time.
God has longer reaching, beautiful arms. He wraps us in arms and brings good things from the bad.
I'd like you to meet a very special guy named Mike. Many of you are familiar with his story already. Mike is a 12 year old boy who attends our church and is a student at the school I teach at. He unfortunately has a very rare, aggressive sarcoma (Annette also had sarcoma) and right now is discontinuing treatment. Yet in his most difficult times, he has the foresight to think of others. Future patients who might be in his shoes some day. He has displayed the greatest grace in taking this ugly tentacle and turning it into something for God's glory. I know Annette was often encouraged in her own journey by hearing about Mike's tenacity. Read more about his legacy here and see a video clip of Mike on the local news here.
Mike, you are an example for us all. We are encouraged and inspired by your story.
