November 21 – Post from Brandon

I wanted to start by wishing everyone a great Thanksgiving! If there is one thing I have learned this year, it is the importance of friends and family. I am so thankful for all of you and don’t know where I would be without you. This year has been the most challenging year of my life. As I sit here and type this, I am in considerable pain and not able to walk very far without having to sit down. I look at my daughter, and it breaks my heart that I can’t “play” with her as a Dad should be able to. I feel bad for my wife that we don’t get to go on “date” nights or out for a drink like normal couples. I feel bad for my parents that they are continually worried about my health and well being. This is mentally and physically draining. Sometimes doubt creeps in, and I wonder if the surgeries and pain are even worth it. With all that being said, it is. Seeing the support and well wishes I receive from all of you makes me want to kick this cancer’s ass. I can’t and won’t let this cancer beat me. I am going to fight like hell to get better so I can be the dad, husband, and son my family deserves. I am thankful for all of you, and I am thankful to be here today. If you don’t mind, please say an extra prayer for me and my family. I wish you and your families nothing but the best, and if you ever need anything, please let me know. I owe you all so much!

  1. Many prayers, Brandon. I’m so inspired by your positivity throughout all of this. I’m inspired by your commitment to your family throughout all of this. I’m inspired by how you are choosing to handle this diagnosis. I have silently been following all of this since the beginning, and I just want to send you this message to let you know that above this disease, I see YOU. How amazing of a person you have turned out to be and how lucky I am to be a witness to your journey. Many prayers are going up in your name.
