How You Can Help

1.
One of the most significant ways you can help is through prayer.
 
"Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall." Psalm 55:22
"Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary. they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31

"Let us approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Hebrews 4:16
"For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11
 
So I stand on the promises of God! God may choose to do a miracle; we know He is more than capable. But God may also choose to bring my Ben home sooner; and I need to trust that His perfect will is better than mine. God is sovereign. I may not understand, but I must obey. He has always been so good to me. I have no reason to doubt Him now.
 
2.
The second way you can help is through the Benefit for Ben we will be having on Sunday, March 9th at our church, The Chapel. Please visit our site http://blue4ben.com to purchase tickets and read more information.
 
Again, thank you. Your support means more to us than you know.

    1. Have you tried the gerson therapy? Food heals our body and high doses of vitamin c been known to shrink tumors.

    2. I found this site through a link a cousin posted which showed up on my main page. I was also going to not only recommend Gerson Therapy, but also provide a list of documentaries that talk about the link between nutrition/health/disease. The Beautiful Truth, Food Matters, Fat, Sick, And Nearly Dead, May I Be Frank, Crazy Sexy Cancer, Forks Over Knives; I highly recommend watching and maybe reaching out to any of the professionals in these docus. I find it more than coincidence that links from another friend posting to FB talked specifically about using Hemp/Cannabis Oil to treat brain cancer so I will post those links as well

  2. I lost my 17 year old healthy son almost five years ago. To ask why is useless as you have learned. What we do know is God is good, He will provide us strength and you will in time understand that blessings come with our tragedies, not the least of which is our love for God and sharing that. He wants those of us suffering to do that. That's our purpose. It's a huge order but you can do it whatever God's will. I am praying for you mom to mom and your entire family. There is no way around the shattered hearts that result from this type of situation, but how you decide to handle it makes all the difference. God love you!

  3. I love my four year old. I can't imagine life without him. I pray that God will move the powers of Heaven in your behalf.

    God doesn't give us anything we aren't capable of bearing. You are a strong daughter of God and He has trusted you with this trial. You can do it. I know you can! Benjamin's story encourages me to hug my little ones a little tighter today. Thank you for being courageous enough to share and document this journey.

  4. I will pray for Ben, and your entire family. I am feeling compelled to tell you about 3 oils that I have been using to help slow and maybe even stop the growth of a brain tumor that I have. The oils are 30 drops of Frankensence, 30 drops of Myrth, and 12 drops of clove bud, which I have combined in 2 tablespoons of fractionated coconut oil. I apply this protocol to my skull at the tumor site, and the back of my neck, and down my spine to my tail bone 3-4 times daily. You can purchase these oils by using the following this link, http://mydoterra.com/ellenrolph. There are no guarantee's, but just maybe they are God's medicine for Ben! Many blessing to you all.

    Like the others above, I feel led to share information about alternative and nutritional therapy. I don't have experience with this, but have heard about Dr. Burzynski in Texas who has had great results with gene therapy. And I've also read about great responses to curcumin. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/05/21/drs-stanislaw-and-gregory-burzynski-on-cancer.aspx
    God bless you all, and thank you for your amazing Christian witness to all of us.

  6. I'm sure there are many, many people giving you references for doctors, but I just want to give you one recommendation that I really hope you seriously think about looking into. Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC has the absolute best doctors in the country and probably the world. Dr. Friedman has helped so many children and adults in NC and around the country with the most difficult brain tumors. Duke has the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center that has changed so many lives. Please at least look into this option before you exhaust all of your options.

  7. I know you are looking at every avenue and have probably had tons of recommendations, but I'll share what recently happened to a friend of mine. See Amy Barclay's page on Facebook. She was diagnosed with a mangioma (sp?) last summer, she went to a neurological surgeon and had part of it removed. She was in a coma for several weeks and had to learn to walk again - she left the hospital two + months after her surgery. Skip forward to Oct./Nov. 2013. It had regrown to the same size as when it was partially removed. She sent her details to both Emory and Duke and in both cases they told Amy that the surgeon didn't remove but only a small portion (and that the near death experience's she went through were mostly because the surgeon was probably inexperienced) the 1st time but that they felt certain that they could remove it completely and little recovery time. Duke was able to get her in for surgery earlier so in early Feb. she headed up to Duke then had the surgery performed the following morning. He removed 100% of the tumor and Amy was out of the hospital and back home talking, walking and alive within 8 days.

    There is Hope and I highly recommend Duke University Hospital to see what they may be able to do for your son. God Bless you all and may healing be complete and soon. Also, if you seek Amy out of Facebook, I'm sure she would be happy to talk with you about her experiences.

  8. Hi Wendy,
    We have never met, but I grew up in Clarence and I currently live in Boston. My heart aches for you and your family. I pray every day that Ben will get well. I shared your blog on my page to encourage support and here is one response from a close friend. I would be happy to connect you would like.

    Hi Deirdre, you might want to recommend that the family look into cbd oils or talk with gw pharma. Cbd has promising results in shrinking brain rumors. Our firm works with some of the leading scientist and doctors in the world using cbd for helping kids with epilepsy and mitochondrial disorders. We can help connect the family to these firms.

  12. Dear Ben and family, I have just stumbled onto your blog from the truth 365. I am so very sad to hear Ben's tumor has progressed. I'm not sure if medical marihuana is legal in your state but I would look Into it for another option. My friends son has ATRT and I have been doing lots and lots of research on avail & experimental protocols for Braintumors. Cannabis oil has lots of promising results in the studies. Look up Brave Mykyla as her parents are great advocates and are helping other parents accessing the oil. Love and light, xxx Nadja https://www.facebook.com/BraveMyKayla

  14. There are many cures for cancer, including brain cancer. Do not give up. You are asking for a miracle. And there is one. Get your hands on YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS... (Not doTerra mentioned above..they are not the quality you are seeking). Young Living is the original and best by far of any oils in the world. I would use nothing else for my children. You want Sacred Frankincense: Scientifically proven to stop the growth of cancer cells. We Believe 100% your little boy can be saved. Diffuse them, put them on. I will find a person in your area to help you or just go to Young Living.com website. Many have been saved by using the Sacred Frankincense.

  16. Hi, have you heard of Gerson Therapy? Basically many terminal cancer patients have found full recovery through juicing, raw food and making their blood more alkaline. Please look into it today. I almost lost my daughter 4 years ago but through juicing and raw food she was 100% healed in a few short weeks. You can contact me and I can give you much more information but God gave us the power of healing, we just have to reach out and take it. I pray God gives him enough time to find full recovery.

  17. You are in our prayers.

    I recently ran across Doterra oils. Frankincense is known to help all types of cancer. It might be an alternative to add. I know it must be hard hearing these things from total strangers, so I apologize for that. Whatever your course of action, I pray that the Lord would provide a miracle for your little boy.

  19. Hi there, I recently came across your story through a mutual friend of ours--Sarah Chang! I will be praying for your son, I also would like to offer some hope possibly! About 3 years ago we met a fellow in our church who had brain cancer and was sent home to die. He went home and did his own research and cured his cancer--he is cancer free and living well! Here's what he did:I kept my body acid level at neutral and took food grade h2o2 three ways.

    http://www.detailshere.com/hydrogenperoxide.html This is not alternative meds, it's about taking your ph level to neutral to kill the cancer. It's about getting your ph up so cancer cannot survive! Hope this helps!!! We too are big followers/believers in Dr Wallach! I know you have your hands full, but please if you can check out the link above!
    Praying for your family!

  20. Please also understand that these things are critical as per the comments above. In getting your pH corrected, it is essential to: completely eliminate ALL commercial foods and synthetic man made foods including all toxic preservatives, colorings, flavorings etc. Absolutely stop using high processed oils like canola, soybean, and corn oil aka "vegetable oils" (which are used in ALL commercial foods) immediately! Use only virgin cold pressed Coconut and Olive oils. Stop eating too much meat for a while, Take up Juicing leafy green vegetables like kale, spinach, collards, etc as well as organic fruits immediately until the cancer is gone. Use the baking soda to quickly and safely supplement the pH, testing it with quality litmus paper daily, of course eliminate virtually all other drinks but water and real juice. The Food grade Hydrogen peroxide properly administered starting with one drop in 8oz of water going up from there will eradicate the Cancer in Jesus name! Cancer cannot survive in a proper pH and the oxygen replenished will kill the existing cancer cells. Lastly, if you are on some sort of city water, please know that sodium flouride is exceedingly poison and does not help ones teeth. You must drink well, spring, or properly distilled water and supplement minerals. God said knowledge will increase in the last days...my experience is this is true. One last thing, vaccinations cause cancer. Study the subject for yourself, the big pharma likes to make people sick because they make trillions. Please pray about this. Much Love to you and yours from Colorado, we will be praying.

  25. Miracles do happen! Never give up hope! My mother was diagnosed 6 yrs ago with stage 4 breast and bone cancer. She is is still going strong. She was at Roswell for a bit but found another doctor in NYC. His name is Dr. Bruckner at Eastchester Center for Cancer in the Bronx. He is absolutely amazing and may have something up his sleeve as he likes to put it.

  26. HI there...I don't know what religion you are but it doesn't matter as long as you have God in your heart and soul...there are 3 VERY POWERFUL prayers we have used throughout our family, and by God's grace and the Blesses Mother, we have experienced miracles beyond belief, and we KNOW it was because of these prayers. Recite the rosary to the Blessed Mother Mary, she has many promises and always fullfills. A 54 day novena is POWERFUL...the there is the St Jude novena (the Saint of all things impossible): "St. Jude, you witnessed the healing power of our Lord Jesus. You saw his compassion for the sick and dying. You yourself touched the sick, shared the sorrows of the mournful, and encouraged the despairing. You received this authority and healing power to work wonders, to cure the incurable, to make people whole. We ask you to intercede with our brother, Jesus, to send his saving grace to heal the sickness and suffering of _________________________________, to uplift his/her despondent spirits, and to instill hope in his/her hearts. Amen." And lastly I will leave you with the prayer to St. Peregrine, The Saint of cancer and other incurable diseases : "St. Peregrine, as a humble Servant of Mary, you experienced human weakness and the pain and suffering of sickness. Knowing that medicine and human knowledge have limits, we pray for all those involved with the medical profession that they will be a true source of healing and comfort to all people. Like you, we also turn to God in our suffering. Just as Jesus reached out and touched you with His healing hand, we pray that the following sick person(s) will be strengthened in body and spirit and cured of his or her illness by Jesus Christ through your intercession.

    (Here mention the name(s) of your sick relative or friend.)

    In gratitude we pray for all people of the world that they will come to know you, St. Peregrine, and the love that God has for each of them. Amen."
    I will continue to pray for your little Ben...fasting and meditation will make the prayers all that much more profound...God Bless...Angelique

  36. Dear Mindy,

    My wife and I read the article in this morning's Buffalo News. My wife's sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer about 2 years ago. She was treated with conventional medicine, which included a double mastectomy. After the treatments were completed we thought she was cancer free. We were wrong. About a year after being treated doctors determined the cancer had spread to her bones. The outlook was grim and she was told last December that that would likely be her last Christmas. She was told she would never walk again due to the deterioration in her bones. Having few alternatives she and her husband turned to alternative measures including Gerson. Very long story short,her doctors performed scans on her just last week (3/6). They reported that her lesions decreased in size and her bones are regenerating. Blood markers are also showing signs of improvement. She is walking with the helpof crutches.

    I don't know enough about all the measures they are taking, and I certainly don't want to give you false hope, but this might be something you would want to learn more about.

    If so, please feel free to email me at richard.smith43@gmail.com and I'll put you in touch with my brother-in-law.

    Thank you and may God bless your family and Ben,

    Rich

  38. Hello!

    I am sure you are getting a ton of advice from all sorts of people and it is probably very overwhelming. But I wanted to contact you in the event you are actually reading the messages that come through on this facebook fan page. It might be worth your time to look into "Rick Simpson Oil" for both pain and halting the growth of the tumor. The use of medical marijuana is very controversial, I do understand this; however, this particular formula of oil does not cause the recipient to get "stoned"...instead, it relieves severe pain and has actually been known to reverse tumor growth, regenerate organs, and literally CURE cancer. There are several sources out there...even facebook groups of people who have and are still using it to treat all stages of cancer. I have even read stories of people who have started using the oil as a way to "comfort during the passing process" and who have completely turned around and are now living normal lives.

    If you would like more resources...obviously you can check around online, but please do not hesitate to contact me and I can point you in the right direction of a few good sources I've come across.

    You are all in my thoughts and prayers :)

On aggressive, non-respondant brain tumors to traditional treatments, they've gone to light sedative surgery (to manage periferral damage by tracking patient's responses) and a custom vaccine made, in part from tumor tissue. The bodies own antibodies protect against regeneration & recurrence. I hope this helps.......e are all praying.

  47. God is our refuge and strength,
    A very present help in trouble,
    Therefore we will not fear,
    Even though the earth be removed,
    And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

    Psalms 46:1-2

    When you go through deep waters,
    I will be with you.
    When you go through rivers of difficulty,
    You will no drown.
    When you walk through the fire of oppression,
    You will not be burned up:
    The flames will not consume you.

    Isaiah 43:2

    These 2 promises were a great source of comfort as I and my family went through similar heartache within the last year. My prayers are with your family and with precious Ben.

  50. I want you to know that I have been praying for Ben and that beautiful family of yours. I DO not understand why so many christians are having to endure horrific "fires" right now. I DO know that His timing is ALWAYS right. He will do what is best. Though at times you may feel you hear nothing, He is speaking. Although you see Him do nothing, He is acting. I was just sharing this exact conversation with a friend who is going through a mighty trial herself. I reminded her that with God there are no accidents. Every incident, every "fire", is intended to bring us closer to HIM. Look at every negative as a blessing as it DOES bring us into a deeper relationship with Him. DON'T let any darkness into the beautiful days you are blessed with.....ONLY light!!! We have to ALL, as christians, remember to thank Him and praise Him through all of our stormy days for this is NOT our home and he blesses us EVEN through the fires of life!! I was prompted to get up this morning and write in your blog. I, first of all love God, then my family and then my God-given passion for natural medicine as well as a God-given passion for photography. I am feeling led to share that I recently got into Young Living Essential Oils. I have a beautiful oil.....frankincense, which in the days Jesus walked among men, was more precious than gold. I would love to gift you with some to put on your sweet boys head. I'm NOT telling you it will cure him but it does have properties to heal and break the blood/brain barrier. IF nothing else, you would be anointing this boy with an oil Jesus himself was given as a gift and anointed with. If I could gift this to you, please call me at 652-6724.

  52. Dear Sauer Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of this tragic time for you all. Your story hits home with me, I too have identical twins (girls) and they were born in May 2009 just like Jack and Ben. All children are a miracle of God, and as a stay at home Mom (like yourself) the bond between your children is so absolutely strong...an unbelievable gift!!! They consume your life and all the things around you do not matter....except for them :) I am praying for you, I really truly hope that a miracle comes for Ben! He is just beautiful, he looks so happy, and he deserves more time...he is an angel for sure!
    12 Years ago my nephew past away suddenly at the age of 17 months, he was a twin and his brother Cody is now 13. My only advice to give you is to take each day at a time. Try not to wonder what the future will bring, and live in the moment. I know that is easier said than done, but try. Capture as many pictures as you can, take as many videos as you can, and kiss him as many times as you can. I would do anything to be able to hold and kiss my little nephew one more time. It was so sudden, I never had the chance.
    Let's pray for a miracle....I sure hope you get one!!! He is in my thoughts, and has been since my sister told me your story yesterday. You are a strong individual and I commend you for that-however-don't feel bad for being angry or crying, it just shows you care. God bless you and your family at this time, let's pray for a miracle!!! God Bless Ben :)

  55. I saw your blog link on a friend's page, and have been praying and will continue to pray for Ben's healing, as well as for peace and stamina for all of your family. Your words and life examples have touched and blessed me beyond what I can even communicate to you, and my 'mom heart' feels like it is breaking on your behalf. God has definitely given you an anointing to clearly describe and express things that He wants all of us to see. Praying for Him to hold you tight tonight.

  56. i learned about your sons illness from my daughter's blog especially ben. I was watching the news tonight and there was a segment about a woman who had the same tumor as you son. The doctors at Duke in NC treated her with the polio virus. It apparently attacked the tumor and she is now cancer free. I could not let this go without at least alerting you to this. The link to the doctors is attached. If you need to email me melw66@hotmail.com

  57. Dear Mindy: I have posted before but don't know if you have gotten it. It IS NOT GOD"S WILL for Ben to perish! Psalm 91:16, Psaml 118:17 However it is the devil who comes to kill and steal and destroy. Please check out Andrew Wommack Ministries and along the left hand side is many healihng testimonies to bless you and prove this. especially children! As long as Ben is here we have the authority to curse all disease and rebuke all manner of disease. Andrew has healing teaching on his webiste too. Just enter it into the search and there is all kind of resources for you. Dan Downey Healing website also had all kinds of scriptures and useful info to fight this battle! Also Dodie Osteen"healed of Cancer" book and Norvel Hayes "How to Live and Not Die" book are also good!
    Praying for Ben. Please look into these resources!! A mother friend in Pennsylvania

  58. Mindy and Andy - I lost a sibling when I was 8 years old. I am now 59 and I totally understand the lifelong effects of what you are going through.. I'll keep this short - check out EssentialCare - they are support for families with kids who have life threatening illnesses - not a death sentence - just an illness that is threatening their life.

  62. You don't know me & nor do I know you, but a friend posted this about Ben on Facebook. I just wanted you to know that you are all in my prayers. I pray that the Lord will put his arms around you & comfort you at this very difficult time. And rest in the fact, that he is holding your right hand at all times, and Ben will one day being walking in the beautiful garden with Jesus. I know that does not soften your grief, but I pray it gives you some comfort. From the pictures I have seen of Ben, he is a beautiful & precious boy. Even though you will have him for a short time, what a blessing to have had him in your lives. Sending love & prayers and God's blessings.

  65. Hello,

    I know that while God can make a blessing of ANYTHING, I don't believe at all based on the gospels and actions of none other than Jesus Christ--God's perfect representative in every way (the book of John especially is filled with comments by Jesus emphatically stating that He ONLY does the will of the Father)--that it's God's will for Ben to be anything but healed, and I mean healed now, on this very earth, and to do wonderful things for God's Kingdom.

    How can we have such confidence? Because, as noted, Jesus perfectly represents the Father's goodness. And Jesus healed everyone who came to Him in faith, everyone! There were no exceptions in the Bible, despite the fact that many, many, many people came to Him from all over to be healed!

    He even healed when He was obviously extremely tired and no doubt needed rest. He healed repeatedly on the Sabbath, at a time when the Pharisees (the leaders of the day in the Jewish religion/culture) considered such to be highly punishable. Yet Jesus, rather than wait even another day, would heal time and again on the Sabbath. Why did He break such an important rule? Because He was revealing the true heart of the Father--that man, woman and child should be unbound from the evils that befell them.

    It didn't matter who it was, the circumstances, etc. Jesus consistently, relentlessly, in fact, healed ALL who came to Him. (just read Matthew 4:23-24 as but one of many examples).

    Jesus, as Matthew 8:17 states, bore our pains, carried our illnesses, and by His stripes, we are healed.

    Blessings, faith, power and, of ultimate importance, love that knows no limit, in Jesus' name

  66. PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO. It used to be on Netflix, but has since been removed. This was the only working link I could find. It details one of the largest cover ups in cancer treatment by the FDA. In the opening scenes you hear from a little girl's father, who went through a situation very similar to your own. His daughter was a twin, who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor when she was four. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  67. I just took a moment to read your story as I saw it on a friend's Facebook page and I am now sitting in my office in tears because I can not imagine the pain you are feeling...I am so sorry. I too have a 4 year old son that was born on our second wedding anniversary and we have two other children, a son that is 2 and a daughter that is 7 months. While not the exact same family structure, certainly similar. I can not express enough how much my heart goes out to you all, no one can ever be ready to live through what you must live through now. Please know I am praying for you all and will continue to lift you all up.

  70. Dear Sauer Family,
    Ben's gorgeous smile has been on my computer all morning and I have been praying for your family. I am praying for healing, I am praying for peace, I am praying that the presence of The Lord is palpable as He holds you in His arms during this difficult time. I am praying that if Ben is to be healed in Heaven rather than here on Earth that you witness as he sees the face of Jesus and know that Ben's heavenly Father who knit him and knows every hair on his head will hold him until you are together again. I lift up prayers of praise for your faith and for the hope that comes from His promises to us in His word, especially the promise of eternal life through His Son Jesus. I pray, I pray, I pray...God bless you all especially your sweet perfect Benjamin.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I have no advice to give, but I can tell you that I am praying for your son:
    Spirit of cancer, I command you to leave Ben's body right now, in the name of Jesus- you leave him and go straight to the feet of Jesus, and do not ever return to Ben again. I command every cancer cell in Ben's body to die right now, in the name of Jesus. I command all tumors to shrink and disappear right now, in the name of Jesus. I speak life and strength and peace into Ben's body. I release You, Holy Spirit, to do your will in Ben's body, to bring healing and life and strength to his body, to fix all that has been broken and to give him strength and life. I speak life into Ben in the name of Jesus- he will live and not die. He will live to proclaim the goodness and love of The Lord, thanks be to God. Amen, this is so.

    I encourage you to pray this prayer of command out loud over your precious son (see Mark 11:23-25). You are a child of the King of Kings, and you have been given the authority in the name of Jesus, and the power in the Holy Spirit to speak to this mountain, and command it to be removed.

    I want to tell you that God loves you so very much, and He loves your sweet Ben so very much. Your pain is His pain. He loves you.

  72. Hello,

    I do not know your family, I came across your page on face book and I wanted to share an article with you. I have dealt with many losses in my life but never the loss of a child. I am so sorry that you and your family are going through such a difficult and trying time. I will be praying for you and your family but mostly your sweet little boy. Please pass this on to your family and friends. You never know who it might help.

    "Alright, here goes. I'm old. What that means is that I've survived (so far) and a lot of people I've known and loved did not. I've lost friends, best friends, acquaintances, co-workers, grandparents, mom, relatives, teachers, mentors, students, neighbors, and a host of other folks. I have no children, and I can't imagine the pain it must be to lose a child. But here's my two cents.

    I wish I could say you get used to people dying. I never did. I don't want to. It tears a hole through me whenever somebody I love dies, no matter the circumstances. But I don't want it to "not matter". I don't want it to be something that just passes. My scars are a testament to the love and the relationship that I had for and with that person. And if the scar is deep, so was the love. So be it. Scars are a testament to life. Scars are a testament that I can love deeply and live deeply and be cut, or even gorged, and that I can heal and continue to live and continue to love. And the scar tissue is stronger than the original flesh ever was. Scars are a testament to life. Scars are only ugly to people who can't see.

    As for grief, you'll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, you're drowning, with wreckage all around you. Everything floating around you reminds you of the beauty and the magnificence of the ship that was, and is no more. And all you can do is float. You find some piece of the wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe it's some physical thing. Maybe it's a happy memory or a photograph. Maybe it's a person who is also floating. For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive.

    In the beginning, the waves are 100 feet tall and crash over you without mercy. They come 10 seconds apart and don't even give you time to catch your breath. All you can do is hang on and float. After a while, maybe weeks, maybe months, you'll find the waves are still 100 feet tall, but they come further apart. When they come, they still crash all over you and wipe you out. But in between, you can breathe, you can function. You never know what's going to trigger the grief. It might be a song, a picture, a street intersection, the smell of a cup of coffee. It can be just about anything...and the wave comes crashing. But in between waves, there is life.

    Somewhere down the line, and it's different for everybody, you find that the waves are only 80 feet tall. Or 50 feet tall. And while they still come, they come further apart. You can see them coming. An anniversary, a birthday, or Christmas, or landing at O'Hare. You can see it coming, for the most part, and prepare yourself. And when it washes over you, you know that somehow you will, again, come out the other side. Soaking wet, sputtering, still hanging on to some tiny piece of the wreckage, but you'll come out.

    Take it from an old guy. The waves never stop coming, and somehow you don't really want them to. But you learn that you'll survive them. And other waves will come. And you'll survive them too. If you're lucky, you'll have lots of scars from lots of loves. And lots of shipwrecks."

  75. I went to sleep last night worrying and praying for you and Ben. Yesterday's blog was so fragile to read. I woke this morning and the first thing on my mind to pray about was Ben. Your struggle and little Ben's pain racked days have me keeping you in constant thought an prayer. I know for your most recent post that the days are numbered, yet I pray and beseech God for a huge miracle. The kind of miracle that fictional movies are made of. I know our God is that big. I don't understand why you are in this place. I continue to pray and wish there was a way to help.

  76. I have been sitting here ever since I stumbled upon your blog a few hours ago. I have just read each and every word of all of your blog entries... through tears....and sometimes sobs. I am praying for the comfort for your family that only Jesus can give. My favorite song kept playing in my mind as I read through your journey…..

    "I was sure by now, God, you would have reached down
    And wiped our tears away
    Stepped in and saved the day
    But once again, I say "Amen", and it's still raining

    As the thunder rolls
    I barely hear You whisper through the rain
    "I'm with you"
    And as Your mercy falls
    I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
    And takes away

    And I'll praise You in this storm
    And I will lift my hands
    For You are who You are
    No matter where I am
    And every tear I've cried
    You hold in Your hand
    You never left my side
    And though my heart is torn
    I will praise You in this storm.”
    (Casting Crowns)

    My heart truly crumbles for you and your family. It is clear that you know that God has a plan…..may that be your comfort as He continues to guide you down this path. I will undoubtedly be praying for you and your family.

    2. I agree, as I noted in my earlier post. Jesus used the power of the Holy Spirit to overwhelm illness. He doesn't change, and He wants Ben well too. That's something our culture doesn't teach, but the gospels repeatedly tell the story of Jesus' heart

The other night we had a tough time putting our daughter to sleep. She is almost 4. I was really frustrated the next morning and tired as I went to work. I stumbled across your blog and read about Ben's story. I find myself praying, crying, praying, and asking why. God has a plan for you and your family. It may not reveal itself right away but I can truly state I looked at my "rough night" a lot differently after reading this blog. I hope I continue to count my blessings in the next day, weeks, years, etc. I also pray for peace for you and your family - God bless

I felt its necessary i let others who are suffering from this acute disease that once you have a good hemp oil it can really give one a sound second chance of living. if you happen to be in need of this hemp oil you can contact the foundation who supplied my brother in law with this email: rickcancercure02@gmail.com Wagner
