Deanna,
Thanks for another update. I love to hear how things are going for you and your family. So many good, yet emotional life events for you right now. Thus the tears. Tears are good and healthy. Enjoy them too. I'm sure there will be many more in the coming weeks and months as you attend HS graduation and prepare for college drop off. Best wishes to you and the family.

Michael and I were so pleased to have a chance to visit with you and your daughters at Art in Bloom at the MIA. You are beautiful and a wonder to behold. When you speak of prayer and gratitude we are reminded of their importance. When you speak of tears, we shed them, too. You remain in our thoughts, always with hope.

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,
