Keeping the Faith

When Andrew was diagnosed with Glioblastoma in September of 2017 the first thing he said to his mother was “I will not die from this”. Everyday since his craniotomy that removed a large tumor from his frontal lobe he has woken up with a smile on his face even when he was feeling his worst. He’s changed his diet, exercises daily, and has changed his outlook on life. He says he has never felt healthier than he does now. Not a day goes by that my husband doesn’t make me laugh and make me forget about all the darkness we have faced together in just a short year. He has been the light through all of this, inspiring myself, his family, co-workers, and friends to be better versions of themselves. Now more than ever he is the happiest and most excited for the arrival of his Twins in early 2019. Being around my husband is my favorite thing in the entire world. He lifts me up when I’m down, he’s helped me build courage and strength I didn’t think I had, and I laugh my hardest when I’m with him. He tells me that he wouldn’t have gotten through the past year without me, when for me, it is quite the opposite.
