“On November 10, 1990, I was diagnosed with brain cancer and told to get my affairs in order. Twenty-seven years later, with surgery, two years of chemotherapy and 30 rounds of radiation in my rearview mirror, I am feeling better than ever.
Many blessings have been showered upon me since the time doctors told me to prepare for death. I have served the church for 18 years and am the father of two wonderful sons. Everything that has happened over the course of my life has been a preparation in empathy for Cord of 3 Strands.
Sympathy is literally to ‘suffer (along) with’, which all good-hearted people are able to accomplish with those in need.
Empathy, on the other hand, is to experience another person’s pain as though it were your own. This is the gift I have received through this prison of cancer and the treatments that saved my earthly life.”
