Cancer Sucks

I've said for a while now that there are two things that I pretty much hate the existence of today.
Divorce and cancer.  I've seen friends and family seriously thrashed by both, and I believe they grieve God.

Some of you may have already heard the story about Randy Miller, the drummer for a band called The Myriad.
If not check out this short video:

Randy is close friend of my friend Rich.
It's one thing to hear about some guy in a band with cancer.  It's another to be separated by 2 degrees and to have a friend who is way close to this family sharing with me the things they are going through.  Rich flew up to Redding today to be with Randy's family for a while.

So you are now only separated by 3 degrees.  That's way better than your seven degrees to Kevin Bacon.  Hopefully it's enough to make you care just a little bit more.

This Christmas there are plenty of "causes" to give to, and to care about.  Some that I'll be posting here on this blog.  Consider this one in the mix.  If nothing else, let's be praying for Randy.  He is a father and a husband.  This is something that could happen to any of us.  Kinda sobering.

I'm not really the greatest at setting aside the time I should to pray for others and to pray for issues.  I'm going to commit to remembering to pray for Randy and his family at the start of every day this holiday season.  Even if you can't contribute financially, you can make a huge difference by praying for the guy.

Will you pray for him with me?
