Man the ways you challenge me... I've been struggling with this all week!
I knew from the beginning that I was going to give, however I never thought
about the amount. It took me a while to wrestle with how much. It seems
like you've already surpassed your so called "easy" goal of 500, but hey why
not shoot for the stars? possible 5,000 in the works?! lol
Hey man, I know it's been an amazingly hard ordeal for your family,
especially your mother. There have been incredible ups and downs, but
man I've seen that youve also grown tremendously. The way that you
speak about family has dramatically changed. You always challenge me
to look at my surroundings, view everything in a positive light, and
to fight for what we truly believe in through action. Thanks for being
As a friend in med school, I've personally have encountered families
enduring the fight with cancer. HECK my dad just had surgery this summer to remove
a freakin tumor we never even knew existed. Cancer is one of the leading
causes of death in this world, and man I pray to God that the strongholds
and grip of cancer that brings death to so many families may be released.
That takes a whole lot of prayer, a whole lot of marathon running, and
whole crap ton of funding for research that's going on too.
Five hundred... even five thousand bucks can seem small in the massive
battle against cancer. But hey let me tell you that it goes a long way. Doing
some translational research in medicine this summer has definitely taught
me that researching in new and innovative fields is truly tough. But the support
you receive from the community and funds go a long way to boost the
confidence of physicians, scientists, and friends like me who are in that
field trying to come up with these things.
I mean think of the many docs and researchers in cancer who see these
live strong races, breast cancer komen campaigns, relay for life walks...etc.
Think about how EMPOWERING it is to know that people like YOU
are running to fight for a cause as great as curing cancer. It is incredibly
empowering, and it gives us more strength knowing that we are NOTjust
mundanely entering a lab to produce some sort of cure for something
I personally know that cancer is truly a BATTLE of emotion, of physical craziness
and so much more. Your mom has just fought that battle. Today she
has totally overcome that battle with her last round of chemo.
Today I make this small gift in remembrance of not only your mother's fight;
but also in remembrance of all the patients I have already come across
in the wards of the hospital who struggle and battle with cancer each
and every day. It's not just about the new development of chemotherapies,
the new oral medications, the new surgical techniques and machines that
your running for. It's about real people who will ultimately have a new
chance at life; a new hope to live for something so much greater than
Thanks for challenging me to really think about what it means to be
not only a cancer patient or a family member with cancer, but a future
doc and a researcher. You, your mom, and so many other people like ya'll
inspire me and greatly motivate me every single day. People like you
guys are exactly the reason why I actually think its worth spending 10+
hours a day studying...
Love you bro.
You encourage me. :)
This amount, is a portion of what had been set aside, from my last paycheck
and I was stopped in my heart, from using it for something else. Me and God
give this to you in support of what you're doing.
Haha, please let me know the 'after' of the marathon!
Talk to ya soon~
U know I got you
Hey hyung sorry I can't give you more, but I support you.
In 2001 my uncle at 38 passed away from cancer not breast but still cancer
he left two son and a loving wife.
James, I'm encouraged and challenged by the way you love and live your
life. I'm sorry that your family is going through this, but I pray and
believe that this season of going through the fire will refine you guys all the
more. Your mom is the luckiest gal to have two great sons, as much as you
guys are lucky to have her as a mom. I can't think of two better people to
love on her and show her the love of Christ. Hwa-ee-ting, my brother =)
Just wanted to make it $300 dollars

Ahh Good Luckk!!!
It's been a while, but I hope you've been doing well! I usually don't get on
facebook very often, but for some reason this morning I just woke up and
decided to get on, and the first thing I saw was your post on the marathon
and I really felt such conviction to support you financially. It's not a whole
lot, but I just want you to remember that you have a supporter up here in
the east coast! I think it's really beautiful what you're doing, and I'll be
praying for you and your mom :)
Good luck and let me know how it goes!
You, Chris, and your mom have been a great blessing and inspiration in my life. I know it isn't much but I'd like to show my appreciation whenever and however I can. Good luck buddy, I'll be praying for you, your cause, your mom, and your knees as you go through those 13 miles haha:]
Go get um son!
