Relationships are the greatest capital a person has. I know this because there has been significant and lengthy suffering in the life of my family. I can attest to this fact: your money doesn't visit you at the hospital. People do. In fact, your money flees when you are in the hospital! It drains away like a sink opened by Drano.
Our book Fighting Disease Not Death: Finding a Way Through Lifelong Struggle is being widely read. Lorie has been speaking at a number of churches (about once monthly is what she feels she can manage), and will speak next at First Baptist Beloit, Wisconsin on Sunday 19, February. Thank you to everyone who has supported this effort!
Just when you think you've witnessed all the craziness in the fundraising world, another goofy incident pops up. If I did not spend so much time writing and speaking on the subject I would probably just roll my eyes, but because I am able to see just how much one act of silliness can harm future opportunity I can't pass up the occasion to keep teaching.
