Our son, Christopher, was diagnosed with cc on May 21, 2006. He was an EMT, just completing his paramedic studies, he was an on-call firefighter and everybody's hero. He was 25 years old. He fought valiantly, never giving in, and lived life to the fullest, yet lost his battle on June 27, 2008. We miss him terribly...
Some of what I've learned:
-- cherish every moment -- do not think only of the future, we do not have a crystal ball -- live in the present!
-- learn as much as you can about cc. Don't bury your head in the sand, as I did. I had a difficult time even reading the info on this site! I think it was my way of coping.
-- above all, never lose hope -- believe in the power of prayer -- believe that miracles can, and do happen!!
Never, Never, Never Give Up ...
