WarEagle, This GA Bulldog will keep you in my prayers. Love your attitude. I couldn't have made it through all of this so far without my church family, and yes Gordy prayer works.
I have a friend who has a rare cancer that was given 3 years, 10 years ago. Has had chemo, surgery, clinical trials off and on. You should hear him give his testimony about the trials his family has gone through and he still keeps his faith and praise for God.
His sister in law was killed in a freak accident when a run away big truck struck a building in which she was in a tanning bed. He has triplets, one has MS, one has epilepsy and still he is the most positive man that I know.
And through all of this still coaching as a head football coach at a high school.
I am in awe of him.
