Our station was a media sponsor of this year's Relay For Life. I had to make an appearance and I decided to have Eli tag along. Ya'll, I cried the whole time I was there.
The strength of the survivors and the hope they give is such a light in a world full of pain. Of course the care-giver's lap was also emotional for me seeing the driving force behind these individuals.
Eli doesn't understand what cancer is, and I pray he won't have to. I pray that before his little mind can realize what this disease is, there will be cure. Of course we live in a fallen world, so until that day of ultimate healing comes, I pray Jesus will comfort all of those hurting.
The evening isn't just about remembering. It's also about celebrating how far treatments have come, so we had some lighthearted moments like this one.
I was truly honored to be a part of this special night and to be among so many inspiring individuals.
