Usflag Thanks, Big Accomplishment

     

My son started his new job today in the Fire Service. Becoming a Fireman has been his goal since he was a sophomore in high school (2000). This is a big accomplishment for him, and the rest of the family, considering that he was diagnosed with Brain Cancer back in July of 2006. Rayse underwent a successful surgery at MDA in January and 90% of the tumor was removed and he is leading a somewhat normal life of a 22 year old now. I could go on all day. I am so happy that this day has come, honestly there have been many times when I didnít know if this would ever happen. Thanks to all of the ATM family who prayed for and supported us through all of this mess. Sincerely, Triplendo (Reyse Richardson)

Oh man! Thanks for posting up the good news! Most of us take sooooo many things for granted every day.

Reyse,

A very heart felt Congrat's goes out to your son on both major life accomplishments. I can tell your very proud of him. And Congrat's to you for raising a young man with that kind of "Grit and Determination".

Thanks everybody, With all the bad news we get these days I think it's important to point out when good happens. Back in January when we were in the waiting room at MDA for a pre-op visit I logged onto ATM and showed Rayse some of the replies to the thread where I spoke of his situation. It moved him to read the comments. Anyway, bless you all for your support and prayers. This All Things Moto bunch is the best!
