To all the Laurelhurst, Eckstein, CAYA, Roosevelt, Franklin Quakers (FQ!), UDUB teammates and friends, Ballard Saturday Morning Hoops crew, USBANK Seattle and St. Louis friends/coworkers, Mike Duffs crew, 206 and 314 area code pals, and all Friends and Family who have checked into this amazing blog that my sister put together. It really touches me in a way I can't describe. Everyone of you who has posted has lifted my energy with each note that you have took the time to send me, I can remember great personal experiences with each and every one you guys-childhood til now. Every encounter has had one commonality-laughing, telling jokes, shooting the breeze, loving life, and appreciating everything we have. I realize this is not going to be an easy process to battle, but I am ready for the fight and cannot wait for the times that are ahead with each and everyone of you as we have many more of the same experiences together that we can remember for a lifetime. I am going to beat this, there is no question in my mind. Each and every persons prayers and thoughts lifts and encourages me everyday, so keep it up. We are going to kick this thing in its butt, and be an encouragement and example to people that anything is possible in the world through positive energy, tremendous support, and the power of prayer. HAPPY SATURDAY!
