Put your problems in perspective as you learn about this boy who had cancer.

By Dave Clark

We all have challenges, but a child with cancer has to be one of the most heart-wrenching challenges there is. Here, I pay tribute to some dear friends of ours who just went through a grueling ordeal of cancer with their eight-year-old son:

A year ago in May, our good friends (whose names I won't mention) found out their eight-year-old son had cancer in his wrist. They found out through a fluke soccer injury. Coincidence? Probably not. Anyway, for the past year, he has been in and out of the hospital and struggled through chemotherapy. It has been an excruciating ordeal for the entire family. At times the sores in his mouth hurt so bad he didn't want to talk and had a hard time eating. Amazingly, their faith in God remained strong through the challenge. A few weeks ago, they found out he was cancer free. What a relief. We recently saw pictures of their family in Disney world thanks to the Make a Wish Foundation. The story in the video below, although with a less favorable outcome, reminded me of him.
