What Cancer cannot do - It cannot cripple love, it cannot shatter hope, it cannot corrode faith, it cannot destroy peace it cannot kill friendship, it cannot suppress memories

It cannot silence courage, it cannot invade the soul, it cannot steal eternal life, and it cannot conquer the spirit.

Cancer is not a death sentence, but rather it is a life sentence. It pushes one to live.  Cancer is a journey. You will find who your true friends are. Let’s hope for many friends. 

MY PERSONAL BATTLE WITH GOLIATH – When I was diagnosed, GOD send me a message that this battle is my goliath and I will OVERCOME and win it.  

How you may ask? Love, Attitude and the grace of God.

LOVE - The love and support of my wonderful wife Dawn – (we are really a winning team) , family and friends. Without constant support I will not be able to win this battle. This includes the support given to my wife to keep her strong.

Love also means that you need to change your heart, forgiving everyone for everything that you may have buried over the years. Breaking the chains that keep you back and thus setting you free. Anger is the real destroyer of our good human qualities. An enemy with a weapon cannot destroy these quality, but anger can. Anger is our real enemy.  1 Corinthians 16:14,  says "Let all that you do be done in love."                                              And

1 John 4:8 says, "The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love." 

Attitude - I had an INTIMATE encounter with God. I know Him as ALMIGHTY and He spoke to me about my attitude.  Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference, as Winston Churchill said. If you are going through hell, keep going.    By having a positive attitude, the battle is 80% won.My attitude determines my altitude. I will soar like an eagle high above what doctors predict. TOGETHER with the help and support of people like you!!

I am a HEIR of the grace of God.          

I WILL WIN MY BATTLE WITH GOLIATH AND I WILL TESTIFY TO THE GLORY OF GOD !!!
