Amy -my sister was in NYC with her friend Paula the day of the marathon. She told me that she was so inspired by you and that you graciously put my name on your number card. WOW! I could tell by my sisters excitement that meeting you was just what she needed. Seeing you healthy and truly living gave her the hope she needed for me. We are only a year apart in age and I think it has been very difficult for to see me going through all of this (Follicular Lymphoma, chemo, radiation etc.) She has been following your blog and keeps telling me how you have written about very similar things to what I am experiencing. Like how excrutiatingly painful your hair feels when it is ready to fall out. It felt so much better when I shaved it off. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. You have touched the lives of people with cancer and those who love them. I have lifted your name to God and asked him to continue blessing you.

In the fight and in His grip,
