PET Scan 5/18/2016

Thank you for all of your messages and notes. It’s been busy here lately so I sincerely apologize for the lapse in Facebook posts. I know you’ll say it’s okay, but from my point of view, I built this platform surrounding our journey to always make sure I treat you all like dear family. It’s important to me, and I think about all of you often.

We had an absolutely amazing weekend celebrating our two amazing boys birthdays. Thank you so much to all who came out to their dual birthday party. They had so much fun at the amazing shark themed party that somehow my incredible wife put together all on her own. She is truly an angel! I am a blessed husband and father.


I apologize for the short notice, but if you have a few seconds to spare, please pray for amazing PET scan results this morning. The scan prep began at 830am.

Please pray for a fight we can win. Please pray that God’s mercy keeps us as a humble family of four for many, many years to come on this beautiful planet.

Just to clarify, we have been fighting this disease in two different fronts for some time now. Unfortunately, we’ve only had to deal with one or the other at any moment on this journey.

In other words, we have to deal with it in my central nervous system (brain) as well as systemic (lungs). MRIs are follow-ups in the brain to restage my progress. PET scans are follow-ups in the rest of the body.

We live but one day at a time. By diligently adhering to this often forgotten philosophy, I have enjoyed this beautiful life, every single day, what will be 7 years this August. God is great, and it is amazing amount of years against this disease.

I’ll keep fighting with all that I have as long as we have you all on this journey with us picking us up when life tries to tear us down.

We fight on. Forever.

We love you all so very much. Thank you, each and every single one of you, for taking the time to love us, share our story, learn from our journey, and for living your lives.
