Deanna and Neal,

Thank you for sharing that you passed this important milestone in December.  I have changed firms (and email addreses) and have not been getting your journal updates, but you were on my mind and I tracked you down today.  I will be sure that all your friends at Glendale are aware.of this good news by sharing it tomorrow night during prayers and concerns.  Please know that we are continuing to hold you up to the Light.  We would love to see you if you are ever in the sunny South or we are in the cold North.

Peace,

Deanna,

I am so happy to celebrate your five-year anniversary and your continuing to survive and to thrive.  Shortly after I was diagnosed last June, my sister Darby shared with me the gist of your story and, explaining that you are surviving with incredible grace, humor, and strength of character, also shared your book with me.  Once I was able to catch my breath and dry some of my tears, your book was the first thing I read--my first attempt to see if anyone could have articulated any part of my still-new but already-devastating experience.  And, you did and did so well.  Your voice was central to my realizing that I was not alone and, at a time when I knew my case was serious but was not at all sure how serious, you gave me hope that even if I learned that I was stage 4, there was yet grace and hope.  Thank you, Deanna, for making the emotional and physical effort to re-live some excruciating experiences and to share your insights so that those of us who would follow you could benefit, as I have.  Cheers to you and the gift you are!

Deanna,  What a wonderful list of milestones.  Thank you for sharing your heartfelt anniversary reflections.  We join you in being grateful for the gift of these five years, especially for the four that followed your first horrendous year of treatment.  With best wishes for a blessed holiday season,

Deanna,
I sit here with tears welling in my eyes - five years ago feels so real to me. I can only imagine how it feels to you.  This news was so good to read and what you chose to communicate was such a gift for me today.  Thank you.  Wendy (and Emily. . . who is still hoping to visit colleges in MN in the spring and come see you all!), Matt, and Aaron
