Facing Giants

In three days, Saturday Nov 6th, I will be walking the DFW Brain Tumor Walk
I am walking in memory of my friend Jess, with her family as a team called "Facing Giants".
She was the most beautiful person I have ever known.  She was diagnosed with a tumor three years ago and fought for two years before she died in June of 2009 at the age of 27.  Even though she was very sick, she NEVER stopped living or giving or hoping.  She never wanted to waste a single second she had on this earth.
Every day was a gift.
Every person a friend - a soul she connected to.
Every word she spoke was full of love.
Every word she wrote, when she could no longer speak, was inspiring and insightful.
I ask that you pray for those with brain tumors and their families.  If you can make a donation to help fight brain tumors and inspire hope to those affected, it will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much.
Peace Be With You.

  3. My sweet aunt is currently battling a braintumor, she's fought the battle for the past many years with strenght and furore but the tumor is now really closing in on her. It's terrible. I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your sweet friend Jess. It's a beautiful thought that you and her family walked the DFW Brain Tumor Walk!

  4. Honey, this is a lovely post and I hope your walk went very well. Thinking of you. My cousin passed away with a brain tumour at age 16, over 20 years ago. So sad. Your words about your friend are beautiful. Sending you lots of love. xx
