Summary

Fighting the Good Fight is a journey of faith, love, and happiness, all centered around a life-and-death struggle for three members of my family who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Starting in 2007 and ending in 2012, life for our family was to see drastic changes, as everyday life had to take a back seat to the daily struggles for survival. I watched my family pull together and do whatever was needed to provide the necessary care for our cancer patients. In 2007, fate was about to deal us a card that would watch my angel walk with God on one side and death on the other. Ida was up to the task. She was ready to fight the good fight, as she would endure more than three hundred chemotherapy treatments in a five-year period. During the interim, my son-in-law's father, and then my son-in-law, would deal with terminal cancer.

Excerpts

Fighting The Good Fight is a journey of faith, love, and a will to survive all centered around a life and death struggle for three (3) members of my family who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Starting in 2007 and ending in 2012, life for our family was to see drastic changes, as everyday life had to take a back seat to the daily struggles for survival. We lived in a rural area of West Virginia which made getting to medical facilities a challenge in and of itself. I watched my family pull together and do whatever was needed to provide the necessary care for our cancer patients. I had married Ida Maine in 1982, and truly had a marriage made in heaven. We were the typical middle class family, working to get ahead and taking care of our two (2) children, Heather and Curtis. We talked so many times of retirement and living the good life, but in 2007 fate was about to deal us a card that would watch my angel walk with God on one side, and death on the other. Ida was up to the task. She was ready to fight the good fight, as she would endure over 300 chemotherapy treatments in a 5 year period. During the interim my son-in-law's father, and then my son-in-law would be dealing with terminal cancer. I cannot begin to tell you what it was like to watch my son-in-law and my wife in the chemo ward side by side both taking treatments just to simply stay alive. Through it all we understood that God was in control, and our fate was in his hands, as we understood that no one has the promise of tomorrow. Our souls had been saved, we had been cleansed in the blood of Christ, and without God in our lives we could not have mustered the strength to fight the good fight. Faith is not about getting the answer that you want from God, it is simply believing that God has an answer. We realized that FAITH IS A VIRTUE, and without faith you have nothing.
