Re: Write this name on your hand

Trooper Joshua D. Miller

Josh was a professional, hard-charging trooper and former Marine. It is with great sadness that I ask you to write his name on your hand: Josh was killed in the line of duty last night. He was a friend and I admired and respected him very much. Although today is a very bad day for our Department, it's much worse for Josh's family. Think of them today.

Re: Write this name on your hand

So sorry to hear about his loss. I watched the news this morning and was saddened by the story. I'll write his name on my hand for tomorrow's WOD.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

I just found out that a good friend of mine, whose name is Shawn, has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma... he's going in for his first chemo treatment this Friday, and they'll decide then whether or not to additionally do radiation therapy.

He's 23, bright, kind, and not a little aggressive (which is probably why we're good friends). He's a fighter and we're all extremely positive about his future, but if anyone else wants to add his name to their next WOD, I'd be grateful.

I have a date with a big tractor tire and sledgehammer this evening, and Shawn, Pamela, Rick, and as many others as I can fit on will be there, too...
Just wanted to post an update:

Shawn is doing really well! He's wiped out by the chemo, of course, but the prognosis was good enough that he's not undergoing any radiotherapy, which rocks. He's only got three months of treatment left.

Also, a friend of mine's father is in a bad way; my buddy is very private about it, so I don't feel comfortable posting details. But, his dad's name is Patrick, and I'm sure he wouldn't mind anyone sending him some good wishes and energy via a barbell, pullup bar, or similar.

I'll be taking Patrick, Shawn, and as many others as I can fit on with me to the box this evening for 5 rounds of 75lbs thrusters and double-unders, 21 reps of each.

Thanks!
Wow!! What a difference a few days makes. Dave was "out" for a very long time. I've heard some of the odd of him making it. Only 10% of the people who have a heart attack make it to the hospital alive. Of those, only 1% actually survive. Dave is a very luck man. He not only made it thru this, but he is already home and recovering.

Thanks to all of you who helped.

Now, Looks like there are still lot's of folks out there hurting. So, let's get them some good vibes going.

Re: Write this name on your hand

Please keep my friend, Rick, in your thoughts. Saturday night he was walking from a restaurant past a grocery store and he was stabbed by a drunk. The drunk apparently mistook him for someone else in the attack. The blade was well over 6" long and sliced through two of his ribs, his stomach, and his liver. He has a very long recovery ahead of him. Yes, they caught the guy, but that won't make Rick heal any more quickly. He is in very rough shape.

Re: Write this name on your hand

Robert,
Thank you for starting this!! What an awesome idea!

I will pass this idea along, especially to one of my closest friends, Camari, who has survived breast cancer twice. She is also a FF, & CF'er. This girl is tough! Even during chemo, she still smoked everyone in CF workouts.

Camari was featured in a book called "Hope Stories", in which a local photographer donated her time in making a collection of local breast cancer survivors.

(scroll down to see Camari's pic...scroll down a bit more to see what the photographer wrote about the book)

I'd also like to add Christy to the list, she is the sister of my supervisor & friend, who is currently battling cancer.

Re: Write this name on your hand

It's been forever since I posted, I know, but I wanted to drop in and ask that y'all write Brian Kercheval's name on your hands. He's the son of a good friend of my b/f, and he's battling cancer, and is not expected to last much longer.

On a happier note, my friend Shawn, who I posted about a bit further up the thread, is doing really well! He's actually gained some weight while on chemotherapy! Keep passing on the good vibes, please!

Cheers,
FD

Re: Write this name on your hand

Just to update those who kept my dad in their thoughts, prayers, and workouts in the past. He passed away on June 2nd.

God bless all who are battling disease, those who are loving and supporting them, and those who are trying to deal with the loss of a loved one.
