Great news : Non BB
« on: January 17, 2006, 10:19:32 pm »
My oldest son, Jarrett was diagnosed with cancer back in May.  He has undergone 6 rounds of brutal chemotherapy in the past 6 months.  

Last week he underwent a series of scans to check how effective the treatments have been.  On Friday we got the news that Jarrett is cancer free!  Needless to say Mom, Dad, brothers and sister are thrilled.

Thanks to all who have prayed for him.

I could only imagine (as a father) how good the feeling was when you found out it was gone.  Great news indeed.  I would guess the air smells a little cleaner, food taste a little better, and you now have a little extra "spring" in your step.  Congrats!

Congratulations doesn't seem adequate but it's the best I got along with my thoughts and prayers for continued health!
