  2. I work in a long term nursing care facilityand just this morning I gave this very advice to a relatively young man who had all but given up hope. We all have adversities some more than others but it is through these times that our faith is tested. Never give up faith, there will be days that ,that is all you have and that will build your character and make you stronger. Cherish life, hold onto it embrace it and reach for the stars. Don\’t look for the big miracles you\’ll miss all the small ones that happen all around you everyday and they do happen. May God Bless your family. Keep your faith and your love strong. This has gooten me through Chris

  4. Kev, Lis and Lukas:Thank you for perspective. I have to have surgery in two weeks and have been having these "attacks" that land me in the hospital overnight off and on for the past six weeks or so. I actually got carted out of my job in an ambulance yesterday…I kept thinking, "God, it hurts and ugh, I am so embarrassed." I was scared of the procedure and the pain, but after listening to your sincere words about how Lisy has been feeling, I am more ashamed than anything. How dare I feel sorry for myself! I keep trying to be positive, to get some perspective on my sad little situation. My best friend even made me a bookmark (because I always read when I get stuck in the hospital) with a picture of a very silly looking cat that reads, "don\’t be a pussy….it\’s not like you have cancer." This may sound cruel, but I swear it has the right sentiment. From familial experience and your writings, there is nothing worse than hearing those words, "you have cancer." I need the constant reminder to get over how bad I feel and focus on positive things. You, Lisy, are my positive focus. You are a survivor. Thank you for putting my life in perspective. Kevin, thank you for writing from the heart, and thank Lukas for me. I was never able to have children, but I love being around them…and his smile just cracks me up. Thank you all for everything and I will be keeping a close eye on you all.AngieP.S. I sent your site to my friend and she said that if your brother ever wants to visit Niagara Falls (that\’s where we are), she\’ll be his official tour guide. She also wants me to mention that she is single, too. 🙂

  24. At first I clicked over like I normally do when checking out the new "nominees" for the week and was ready to type my usual "congratulations on your nomination and good luck this week", but not for you. This deserves much more than just those simple empty words. My heart and prayers go out to you, your wife and family. I don\’t have much time to read through everything as it is 2:59 am where I am and I have to rise at noon to get ready for work, but I will definitely be adding you to my del.iciou.us listing for further reading. I most certainly want to hear more about your story.

  25. First let me say that as I sit here reading your journal and listening to the song playing I am crying…my heart goes out to you and your family. I can completely sympathize with what you are going through. I started a blog about my mom\’s battle with cancer. She was diagnosed with Stage III uterine cancer at age 54, and like you, I also felt some kind of therapy by writing in my blog journal. There are no real words to express what you feel when a loved one goes through something like this. It makes you feel completely helpless and your life begins to flash before your eyes. Things that were once unimportant suddenly matter so much! Cherish every moment that you spend together because as too many people in the world come to realize through cancer…it can all be taken away from you in the blink of an eye. Take care and God bless!

  31. Well, let me tell you that you have sooooo much information on your space that it\’s impossible to read everything. But I also want to tell you that we will definitely keep you and your family in our prayers. We know what it is to battle a disease. My husband had diabetes for 7yrs and had to be on insulin 4times/day. Very frustrating! He ended up in the hospital a few times and we kept asking God to heal him. We know that All things are possible with God, and just recently, God did heal my husband from his diabetes. It\’s been a month since he\’s not been taking his insulin, and feels great.  I have a few websites you can check out for more on us….And if you\’re wife is still battling leukemia, I tell you that there\’s hope!!

  36.   Kevin, your site brings back so many memories of what its like to have a loved one going through treatment for Leukemia. Everything about this I\’ve been through before.
      The last day of September 1982, my Dad was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. When he came by my house and told me, my heart just dropped to the floor and I could see the fear in his eyes. I remember thinking "why me? Why my dad? Things like this don\’t happen to our family." But the sad truth is that bad things happen to good people.
      I remember his Doctor, Dr. Sides was very truthful with us and what he had to say wasn\’t pleasant and I didn\’t want to hear it. But he told us the truth and when he was done we knew where we stood and what we were facing.
      I remember my Dad taking a chemo drug they called "The Red Devil." They called it that cause it was red and it was very strong. The drugs real name was Adriamyacin. He never got sick (vomiting) with it but he lost all his hair and developed sores in his mouth. He couldn\’t eat and said his coffee tasted like metal.
      He finally did get out of the hospital and one day almost a year later we were fishing and he told me that if he knew then what he knew now, he would never have taken the treatment. This disease was as hard on the family as it was on my Dad.
      Kevin, they have made a lot of strides in Leukemia treatment since 1982 and I know that Lissy is going to be fine. Just keep your chin up and above all keep your faith alive in God\’s Word.
      I don\’t\’ know where you are at with God but I want you to know that The Bible says that Jesus "Healed Them All." He never refused to heal anyone.
      God bless you and Lissy in your battle with this disease. You have many bright days and years ahead of both of you while you raise your young son to manhood.
      As I close, I want to leave you with these final words: "He was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5)

  37. Hey Kevin and Lis
    I hope everything is going well with your family your health. I to have battled cancer just recently. I am 27 years old and two years ago I was diagnosed with leukemia. It was rare because it was CLL which developes in mostly older people. I started chemo Sept. 05 and last Feb. was my last one. It has been 4 1/2 months and feel pretty good. PET scan showed that there wasn\’t any cancer cells in my body and in August I go to Houston for a bone marrow biopsy and with the help of God I believe that it will show that I am in complete remission just like the rest. This has been very hard on my family but we are strong people and we trust God. I prayer everyday that He helps people like us. I have faith that God has healed me of this disease. "All things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." Matt. 21:22.
    I have a daughter that will turn 2 in Oct. and looking at her everyday reminds me of why it is important to stay strong. Our family needs to be strong and supportive but the cancer patient needs to be stronger. Lis you seem to have a strong family and you seem to be a strong person. Keep praying and believing and good things will happen, God doesn\’t lie.

    Great site…thanks.  Congrats to both of you on your courageous war with cancer.  I\’m a care giver for my husband who had ALL.  Normally this leukemia is found in children but a few adults, after the age of 50, get this terrible, terrible leukemia.  The two and a half years of chemo was the most difficult and challenging sitiuation that we have ever had to deal with.  He has been in remission for 3 years and is going strong.  Although we had many major bumps along the way, we\’re doing great thanks to the support of family, friends and the medical staff at the PMH in Toronto.  I\’m sure there was some serious devine intervention along the way as well.
    Remember to enjoy your family…. laugh, love and don\’t sweat the small stuff!!!!!! 
    Warmly!!!!  J.B.

  50. Hi Lis,
     
    Just saw your web sight and wanted to say hi and wish you well. My son was diagnosed in 2001 and is now 17 years old and doing well. However My neice was just diagnosed last Saturday and she is also 28 years old like you. Most people don\’t know the older you are the harder it is to control the disease. Hang in there and remember there is lots of hope to be had. Our prayers are with you.

  53. All my hopes and prayers for your wifes recovery.  A friend of my dad\’s wife had leukemia.  they had 3 young children.  All she wanted to to see them graduate high school.  She went into remission and stayed in it long enough to see her three kids graduate high school, tow graduate college, her daughter get married, and the birth of her first grandchild.  I wish all that and more for you.

  55. Hey there,
       I know that if you keep faith in the lord and pray your wife will come through. I believe and thats enough for me, how bout you? I know from experience that praying will help because i\’ve gone through hard times, (not nearly as hard as yours), and I prayed and I got the guy put in jail, and I am now doing much much better!!! I know that your wife will pull through if you just believe in the lord and pray for her. I\’ll tell you this, I\’ll pray for her!
    lots of prayers,

  59. My husband of 7.5 years recently left me and our young son, age 7, for
    another woman.  I had not thanked God for our little boy and to
    cherish his good health and let go of the man that betrayed us and to
    remember to have faith in God that he is where he wants us to be. 
    I lost my only brother to leukemia, years ago, and have worked in the
    medical field, specifically in Hematology/Oncology, and was pleased to
    see how very far we\’ve come in the 20 years sinced I lost my brother,
    in the treatment of this cancer.  I have a renewed hope that this
    cancer IS treatable.  You have a beautiful family, and as it
    should be, cherish them always. My thoughts and prayers are with
    you.

  60. Hi Lisa and family,
     
    Life can be so short sometimes; but it can be the greatest blessing if we live it to the fullest.  Each smile, each touch, each word we hang on to as if they are our next breath to take.  I have had cancer and I have a family history of many battles with it as well.  I know your path my love.  It is a stony path and yet when you set your mind to it; you can be lifted with wings and fly over them; as if angels are carrying you along.  Like walking on the shore with only one set of footprints……..He is there.  I am too.  Please write to me, any and all of you.  My only prayer is that I can be a source of love and friendship.  Blessings to you,  Lynn

  77. i have secretly and quietly read your blog for years and just thought it would be nice to tell you that you may not know – but your family has given me alot of encouragement. i am a single mom with three girls and have struggled the past couple years in survival mode – just getting by and going through the motions. whenever i think my life is completely miserable, i read your blog and inevitably i get joy from it. i feel like i have watched your little boy grow up with all the pictures that you post. i have cried when reading of lis\’ struggles and laughed at all your quirky jokes and easy humor. you deserve all the acknowledgment you receive. i recently started trying to keep up with my own blog after a long hiatus. it is truly therapeutic. i hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed new year!

  78. Found your youtube video and then today had a look at your blog.  Will be taking some time to read through it properly.  My 4 year old daughter Bianca was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia beginning June 2007 and so I find it very inspirational to read through other people\’s journeys.  Thank you for sharing your story.  It really helps people like us know that there is light at the end of the tunnel and that we are not alone.  We are now almost going into our long term maintenance and if all goes well treatment should end sometime late 2009.I will keep you in my prayers!Lea WhiteWellington, New Zealandhttp://whitesinnz.blogspot.com
