    Help a brave young man out

    I am hoping that everyone is willing to help out on this one. I have a nephew, his name is Jonathan. He is 8 years old and is battling liver/lung cancer. He was diagnoised over a year ago and have went through several rounds of chemo and multiple surgeries. The docs have recommended palative care, but he still wants to fight and feels that God is not finished with him yet. He is understand what he is up against and is one of the bravest people I have ever met. I have watched many adults face death with much less courage and determination. What I would like for everyone that reads this is to simple post a few words of encouragement and/or that you are praying for him. Thanks in advance and please pass the word here. (I'll be posting similarly on other forums). We will be going down to visit them in Kennesaw, Georgia in a few weeks and I plan to print off a copy of this so he will know how many folks are supporting him. Thanks again.

    Jonathan this happens to be one of my favorite quotes on the topic of Determination. I hope you enjoy it as it has moved me to dig deep on many an occasion. May God look over you and do keep your head up high. You keep on with the Faith and all will work out in the end.

    Stay Strong Jonathan!

    One day two frogs fell into a deep bowl of cream.
    One frog got SO SCARED STIFF that he could not move and (sadly) he drowned in the cream.
    The OTHER frog kicked and struggled and fought so hard to live that he whipped all that cream into thick butter and then he just walked out.:P

    Never Give Up The Fight Jonathan!
    You will be in my thoughts and my prayers.

    Tell your nephew the \"Soldier Prayer\"

    \"Lord, Thou knowest what I must do this day.\"

    \"If I forget thee.\"

    \"Do not thou forget me.\"

    \"Amen.\"

    Tell him a former wounded soldier has said a prayer for him. God bless.
