As I started my day, I was thankful for being able to wake up, having an incredible wife, children and friend network. I also began to think about the powerful, strong, awesome women in my life. Although my mother (Iris) and sister (Jackie) are no longer physically with us, they were strong women who instilled confidence and love in my soul.
My loving wife (Elisa) who has been incredible though this cancer journey, and even before the prognosis, and Gail, Cara, Wendy and all of my girls with Northside Medical, who gave me strength daily to help me overcome our cancer battle. I started thinking where did all of this strength come from. Why are women so much stronger willed than men? Why are women the back bone of our families? Well, God presented the answer to me via a bible passage;
Judith 13:1-11 and 12-20 (I will just summarize the passages)
A mean, spiteful King named Holofernes (King of the Assyrians) seek to destroy Judith and the Israelites. Judith, by herself, sought out to save her land, precious people and faith. Long story short, Judith returned victorious over the King and his army and lived the rest of her life revered and loved by her family and the Israelites.
Imagine taking on a King and his army by yourself to protect your family....that's what Judith did!!!! This is where the fighting spirit of women come from. Women will do anything to protect their families. I have nothing but admiration and love for women. Thank you for being you!

Love you for reading my blog!
Was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer on July 18, 2018 which may have crushed someone's soul and spirit. However, it did the opposite, as I already knew GOD had claimed my victory over this disease and was using me as an instrument to others who suffer from this deadly disease.
