The Power of the Heart

Cancer is strong. Cancer is powerful. Cancer will fight to the death. It keeps hitting back. again and again. I am in awe of the fighting power of those with cancer. They are never permitted to let their guard down. They fight until they have no strength left. Until they have nothing left to give, and then they fight more. They fight with their heart and their spirit. There is nothing glamorous about it, it is an ugly war. But it is the purest form of courage I have ever witnessed.

Yesterday was a lot of ups and downs. Last night was a blast playing some family games. This morning cancer went back on full assault and Tyler will fight back. He pulls from a power deep inside his heart. Again and again until cancer is defeated.

"I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me."
Philippians 4:13

We very much appreciate all your comments on the blog and emails. They are very encouraging. Thank you for all your prayers and support.

YOU Tyler are stronger, tougher, more powerful, more faithful, and so much more alive than this cheater and liar called cancer. As your Dad says, do not be deceived, it will fight you hard, you just have to hang in there, stay on your course, and visualize a day when this is over. Imagine how much a changed person you will be, what you can and will do for others, knowing now what you didn't know then. stay strong kiddo
