Sam's Conquering of A.L.L.

Sam Goertzen's blog - read it daily for inspiration and perspective!

Hi Sam,

I am a Goertzen, just like you. Your grandpa, George Goertzen, is my former husband's uncle. So I have called him Uncle George for many years. Please say hi to your grandpa and grandma for me. My name is Maggie.

I was glad to see all the pictures of you, because I don't think we've ever met. I have been to your grandpa's home in B.C., but only once. Anyway, you have a winning smile, Sam. And your grandpa has told us how brave you've been through everything. That can't be easy, I know. (I'm a nurse.)

I wish you smooth sailing these next few months and years. We'll all just have to visualize you healthy and strong and having a blast at the cottage you love to go to in the summers. What is it that your grandpa said you love to do - water-boarding or something like that? I will picture you doing that with great abandon and joy and radiant good health!

You're in my thoughts and prayers these days, Sam. And I'm glad that you're sharing your journey. Because even though I am a stranger to you, I will be behind you 100% in spirit, ok?

Take good care,
Maggie Goertzen

But I thank you for your prayers, they certinaly were answered by God. Sam is healthy and 15 years old now. On May 15 this year it marked 4 years to the day he was diagnosed. He is and always will be my liitle hero.
