My Son Has Cancer

Thank you again to all who are thinking of little Lincoln at this time and praying for miracles which happen every day. The hardest part is
even believing that one day ago my son was playing at Grandmas and got a tummy ache, and the next day he has cancer.
MY SON HAS CANCER. There is no other way to say it. Our life is at a turning point that has taken us to the edge of our faith, to where we will either run away, or jump headlong into the journey that cancer will take us.
We are falling, there was no hesitation, no denial, just a single jump to help our son fight to the victory. There will be pain and sadness, loss of our life as we knew it and financial difficulties, but we have leaped into an unending canyon that is filled with God's Mercy and Grace.
We have an incredible support system that shares an exponential amount of prayer which has sustained us this far. Now we pray together even to the point that cancer miraculously disappears.
They say things happen for a reason, but sometimes they happen so we will reach out and love each other sacrificially as Jesus did.
We know that John 3:16 says For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
But 1 John 3:16 defines Love as: This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.
We thank you for offering yourselves to us and we will call on you, but don't stop with us when you know you have the capacity to love your neighbor as you love yourself. Lincoln will fight and will win, with your help and in the name of Jesus, the son that gave his life.
