Oh Shanda, I am so happy for you. When I read the news that your darling husband put up I had to sit down and have a good cry. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. I have been so blessed to have been some small part in this miracle as I have fasted and prayed for you and your family. May the Lord continue to bless you.

Dear Shanda-I TOLD you there was a great chance for a cure since this was so early. Look how far you have come in the last year! What blessings we have! It is especially poignant since today is Randy's 6 year anniversary of his diagnosis and 6-12 week prognosis!

I am so happy for you and your family. Reed went golfing with your Dad to celebrate and told me of some of the things he said about you and how happy he seemed. I could only imagine what Ben, you and the rest of your family is feeling right now. Again, I am so happy for you all. I hope the rest of your recovery is quick.

I am just so thrilled for you and your family at the latest news. I hope that this means that all the energy that has gone into getting rid of the cancer can now go into getting you better and back on your feet! I think you need a big old cancer-free Birthday party to celebrate! When one of my friends came out of surgery (she was a little loopy from anesthesia) and was asked how she was doing she said, "I'm cancer-free and living large!" I think about that often and it makes me smile. I am SO happy that now you can say that you are cancer free and I think that soon it's time to live large! Congratulations, keep the great news coming!

You are amazing and my testimony has grown so much through this whole experience and I thank you for allowing us all to be a part of the prayers and fasting! It has blessed us all more than you will ever know! We love you!
