This is a letter to our friends –
Thanks, from Brendan’s mom
(Our daughter, Susan)
To everyone who has donated or been praying for Brendan and our family,
Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make a mighty ocean,
And a pleasant land.
The above rhyme is one that my mother taught me, and it has come to mind more and more as I have seen the outpouring of love as our son, Brendan battles cancer.
Hearing a cancer diagnosis for your child literally knocks you flat, as a parent. Knowing that your insurance won’t cover it adds a whole new layer of shock. Our new favorite saying has been, “But God”.
Brendan has cancer – But God is greater.
The bills are more than we can fathom – But God’s accounts are bigger than the hospital’s.
But Brendan was leaving for the Army! – But God has a perfect plan for Brendan, and this is just a part of his preparation for life But what about school? – But God will pave a way
But? But? – BUT GOD!
So, thank you for being a part of God’s work in our lives. Those little drops of water do really add up! Those little grains of sand bring a very pleasant land full of love and a peace that surpasses all understanding.

Thank you again,
