Bob Update

The phrase "one day at a time" seems cliche until you have to live it. Then it becomes an avenue for survival and then revival to a whole new way of living.

Great News!

I checked in with our friend Bob yesterday, and he shared the following with me:

“Three months ago tomorrow (which is today), the squad took me to the ER, and after being there for 2.5 hours, three doctors walked in to tell me I had blood cancer. That is the day I became a survivor. I am now seventeen months post-transplant and Leukemia free. With each day that passes, I am one day closer to my next milestone in December–my 2nd post-transplant birthday. That’s a significant milestone on the road to survivorship. In addition, my GvHD (Graph vs. Host Disease) symptoms have cleared up–another sign that my body has accepted the transplant.

My current prayer requests are for continued healing of the body and protection against injury as I start to focus on running again. It’s been a long road, but I am ready to start training for that BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal).”

(Bob was training to complete a marathon when his life took a turn down another path back in August 2020.)

Bob concluded, “Thank you and the EagleLaunch Community for all the prayers and support!”

This is such a remarkable story of faith, grit, determination, perseverance and taking it one day at a time.

Keep growing stronger, Bob!

We will all keep praying for you!

Matthew 17:20, “He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
