National Brain Tumor Foundation Walk

Last Saturday, I walked with my fellow "Endure to Conquer" team members in honor of our friend Tim, who has been diagnosed with brain cancer. He has had two surgeries so far and the doctors aren't optimistic about how many more years he has to live. He has three amazing kids who pray every night that the cancer in daddy's head goes away.

We were the top fund-raising group for the NBTF Angel Adventure walk, which was a smaller-scale event. We got a chance to talk to other brain tumor survivors, including a mother of a one-year-old. A total of five survivors stood up during the closing ceremony. The air was filled with hope traced with tragedy... it was quite an emotional event.

Here's the youngest member of our group - Mateo, Tim's youngest son. Isn't he absolutely adorable?

What a great thing to do for a very sad reason. Wishing Tim - and all those other survivors -- strength and healing.
