Reading about John's struggle really makes you appreciate the good things in your life. It makes my little aches and pains a blessing compared to his constant trials. I hope his faith and friends can carry him through the fight ahead. We will keep him in our prayers.

Of course we'll be praying for John. God love him! I can't imagine being through so much at such a young age.

Kathy,

I feel the same as you. I often think about John and his daily struggles and it puts life into perspective for me. The problems we think are so great, are so small to others battling life-threatening illnesses. Thank you for praying for John.

Camille,

It is an awful lot for one family to bear - two children battling different forms of cancer. They are a remarkably strong family. Thank you for your prayers.

I will say a prayer for him and explain the story to my 6 year old son so he can include John and his family in his prayers. God Bless and thanks for sharing.

prayers will continue from here. Hopefully, we will praise God together in joy [I]when [I] John is again in remission, then when he is cancer free.

Just read your story about your son. What an awful accident your family had to endure. I'm glad to hear he's doing well. I will keep him in my prayers, also.

Wonderful thoughts of praise. Thank you. (On a side note, we have triplets in our family, too. They are in their mid 20's)

Will add John and his family to my daily prayers.

I still cannot bring myself to post a new thread here about my family (parents and my sister who lives at home) without crying. All three have cancer - the hardest was my sister's diagnosis two weeks ago. I can only describe it as a truck that hit us out of nowhere. I am just now trying to separate my everyday life from what we are dealing with or we will fall apart. Will try to post soon.........

Rachel, he is brave and has battled cancer for years and has overcome it. Saying he has a strong faith is an understatement, and that faith has carried him through his ordeal.
