Stories and Words of Inspiration that help me on this journey
My son stood in front of his school of 800 boys, along with various faculty and staff, and told his story.
His speech was serious and sad. It was witty and inspirational. He spoke in a strong voice, and he smiled his way through it. His classmates listened, and then they laughed. At the end, they gave him a standing ovation.
I was blown away. So proud that he was determined to share his life, but also so sad that his convocation speech was about his diagnosis of these three diseases.
His main message continues to be his mantra for life: No matter what you are going through, surround yourself with people you love, smile, laugh and keep your fire of hope burning.
