I worked with this guy for a month or so before he went back into the hospital. Pretty sad, but its amazing how high his spirits are.

Here is his video at the party. I guess, he was just out of it through out the whole party but all of a sudden he got up out of his wheel chair and spoke.

That was pretty cool... His shout-out to his mom was perfect. Thanks for sharing.

He is still alive hanging on. I know that when he was first diagnosed when he was really young doctors said he wouldnt live past 19.

WOW, What a remarkable young man. When he started to break down while talking about his mom, I couldn't hold back my own tears. Maybe because I'm a mom too. I don't know how his mom was able to keep herself together. I guess we can see where he gets his strength.
I will be keeping this family in my prayers.
