How do I tell my son there is no cure?

How do I tell my son there is no cure?

I’m staring at an envelope I received yesterday.

It’s from CCFA.

I haven’t opened it yet, but I will.

On the front, it says:

A loving mother asks, “How do I tell my son there is no cure”?

Our son has had this disease for five years. He’s almost nine.

I don’t really have the energy to go into the story right now.

Maybe tomorrow. Maybe not.

There are worse things in the world. Worse diseases. Worse odds. Worse everything.

In some strange way, it almost makes me feel blessed to only have the challenge we have. Knowing full well, for many, it’s worse.

As I pray for our son, and for my wife, I will also lift up all those who are suffering, which should be everyone.

Anyway, have a nice evening. Peace, Joy and Love, jeff noel 🙂

Internet's only five-a-day blogger, leaving a trail for our son. This is about putting the spirit of Love at the center of your life. It may be God, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Yahweh, etc. For me, it's Jesus.

You have such a good heart! Prayer is the only answer. I believe in miracles and will add you all to my prayer list. You have such clarity and seem to have true peace. Let is so important in all that we do.

Bennie, thank you for your comments. Coming from you and your life’s wisdom, I feel blessed to have you as a fellow prayer warrior. Peace, jeff 🙂

Jeff, your son is so kind-hearted, which is a gift. Like you, he will be a great teacher one day and make the journey a little easier for people who suffer from the same disease. Helping others won’t cure, but it definitely heals.

Sending good wishes!
