Updates on Joshua

A.J.'s Fine; Concert went Well; Samefight on K-LOVE!

We have many things to update this week...  So sorry that it took awhile!

First off, from what I hear, things at the concert went very well!  Those of you who attended may be aware that we had to take A.J. to the doctor at the last minute.  I know everyone was terribly worried about him and I am truly sorry.  He is back to himself now.  We just cannot be too careful.

However, everyone I spoke to seemed very moved and just positive about the whole concert experience.  Of the many highlights of the evening, the one I most wish I hadn’t missed was my grandmother picking “Wildwood Flower”—Joshua’s favorite!  The silent auction also went very well.  We couldn’t be more thrilled that we hosted events for two consecutive weekends, had a blast doing it, and simultaneously raised over $13,000 to establish a fund that will benefit a local student.  Now that is “HOPE”-ful!

And speaking of “positive and encouraging,” those of you who know me well know what an advocate I am for my fave radio station, K-LOVE (106.7 in our area, but they broadcast nationwide).  Wherever you are, I hope you will check out their website,,  this week and listen to a podcast entitled, “Kids Leave Cancer Legacy in Floyd.”  While putting together the slideshows for the games and concerts, I emailed the Samefight story to K-LOVE, who seemed to think the story was worth sharing.  I hope listeners think so too…  As I explained to the reporter, Julia Zaher, I believe that God has big things in store for the little town of Floyd.

Thanks again to each of the many who have touched our lives with your kindness.
