    Circumstances giving challenge are often horrendous. People can be at their best when called upon to rise to the challenge, or quit. You and Matt have risen with strength and character.

    I will continue to support you where I can, Liz, and pray that the work of your Dr. will make the advances necessary. I have two great nehpews who were born with cystic fibrosis, and we continue to pray for a drug that will help them. So far they have grown into healthy 7 and 9 year olds. But right now their life expectancy is around 35.
    God blesses us in so many ways, even in our tragedies.
