This post was originally written on November 23, 2008. I never published it. Why? I’m not sure. I think that I was unhappy with it. Interesting to see what has happened in the past 6 months. Right now, he’s in Remission.
I was right about the marathon by the way. He is training for the New York Marathon. He is running with Team LIVESTRONG. Read more about it here. Go get ’em Chad. I love you.
My brother, Chad needs to feel better. He has been diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. Only my brother would name them…
Chad inspires me in lots of ways, and I know that he inspires the many people who read his blog. (Speaking of Tribes, he’s got a huge Tribe of folks who follow him – comment 5/19/09) I am sure that God is going to get a lot of glory in this situation. We don’t know how he works, we only know that God will work all things together for good (Romans 8:28.) He’s sovereign and knows what’s going on.
God’s ultimate goal is for us is Christlikeness. God allows things in our lives so that we can become more like Christ.
I know that this is difficult to see right now. But I also know how strong and determined Chad is. He will probably be running a marathon before the end of 2010 just to spite it all, and will probably become a huge advocate for testicular cancer.
