WOW: words of wisdom, never underestimate the power of faith. I just spent the last two days on a journey of faith. But before i explain it all let me throw out an analogy. If you have ever gone back-packing, hiking with all you need to survive on your back, you know the relief you feel when you finally take that pack off your back for the day. That’s what I feel tonight. Like a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Jess has come through surgery like the warrior we knew she was, healthier than the doctors could have imagined. I’m enjoying this initial victory thanks to faith! My little girl has looked cancer in the eye and said, “get out of my way and my life.” She continues to be the best decision of my life; to be a dad.
Now on to faith. I relied on my faith in God that I would make the right decisions in what I would say to Jess. I had faith in the power of prayer with literally hundreds of people praying for a positive outcome to her surgery. Faith in the treatment that we all know now made an incredible difference in her surgery and quick recovery from the trauma of 6 hours of major surgery.
Jess had faith too. Faith in what I was saying to her in love. Faith in alternative treatment. Enough faith to leave Miami and her Miami family of friends and come to NH and eventually Boston to CHANGE HER FAMILY HISTORY. She had faith in her power. Power she received from her mom(Debbie)who did everything she could to fight her cancer.
And we all had faith in Jess. We knew she was far too intelligent not to see the opportunity in pre-surgery and post surgery treatment at the Sante Center. And as the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding.
Jess will be released from the hospital tomorrow (today as you read this). She only missed about 12 hours of texting, tweeting, and emailing. She is back in touch with her world through technology. Our next step in the journey is to complete what we started, CHANGE FAMILY HISTORY!
Alternative therapy is not covered by insurance, but will ultimately make this reality. If you are reading this you have probably been praying for “my little girl.” I thank you from the bottom of my heart and from Jess’s entire family, because we know your prayers made a difference.
Now if you can, please donate to the continuation of her journey. No amount is to small since we believe the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. And if you are in the area stop by and visit her as she daily fights to make a difference not only for herself but for future generations of women who may find themselves facing their giants.
Good night and God bless,
