Thank you for sharing your journey. I hope you are able to download or print your posts from the last year for Finn and Liam to see when they are old enough to share this journey with you. 

I'm looking forward to following the new blog to keep up with the adventures of the Dudley family.

Matt, It's been an honor to part of your journey. We are so happy you are where you are. It is amazing, and reading your posts has brought much richness into our world. We will be in Anchorage the first week of April and will hope to see you. It sounds like you are stronger every day. Sending our love and (maybe this isn't the right word?) congratulations.

Hi Matt,

Well, one year later, you are not the same person, but neither are any of us who have traveled this journey with you, Brooke, Jim and Gayle and all the Dudley brothers.  Not only have you changed your own life and outlook, you certainly have changed mine and that of the Weber brothers.  My sense of humility has been greatly enhanced and I cherish every minute I am alive and well. 

I have an eleven year old cousin, Jakob, who has now conquered cancer for the second time in his young life.  I have followed his journey through a special Facebook page and many contacts with his grandparents, my aunt and uncle. 

I am a volunteer ski instructor for our STARS (Steamboat adaptive Recreational Sports) program.  We just finished a week with the Sunshine Kids, 24 children and young adults who are cancer survivors.  I had the privilege of teaching two college-aged young women ( who had probably never seen a ski   before!!) to ski.  It was remarkable and heartwarming to see them  be able to independently ski down a slope..... with courage and confidence.  And, as childhood cancer survivors,  they now see their bright futures defined by those very feelings.

And what I have learned from you, Jokob and the Sunshine Kids will nurture me for a very long time.

You have appreciated and thanked us enough.  I thank you for sharing your life with all of us this past year.  I still think you should heed Holly's suggestion and write that book!! 

You will always be a significant part of Steamboat and we will welcome you home when you, Brooke and the little Dudley brothers can return.

Warmest Wishes,   Linda

Matt,

I’m one of the silent supporters (there are probably more ofus than you suspect) who has followed and supported you every day for the lastyear.  As you said yesterday, you“will never be the same,” and that is good.  You have become a stronger, more caring and compassionateman than you were 365 days ago; that’s the plus side of adversity.  I have thought often of that early postwhere you wrote about the N of 1 and was delighted yesterday when you mentionedthat the N of 1 is still moving forward. I also hope that someday you will be able to connect with “the onesomeone who gave (you) this chance at life again.”  She would probably love to read what you have written overthis last year.  I look forward tofollowing you on wordpress and seeing you, Brooke, and the boys on the CoastalTrail and in the neighborhood.

What a milestone you have achieved!!!  Your family and friends have helped a lot, but it was YOU who had to endure all the pain, extreme fear, loneliness, etc.  YOU, with the help of your medical team, made this happen.  Congratulations!!!  Looking forward to many years ahead for you.  Can't wait for your first trip back to Colorado.  Hopefully that won't be in the too distant future.

Will miss you on CaringBridge, it was so easy to pull up in far away places on my phone.  But, will follow you when we are at home on your Blog.

Much love,

Mary Lou
