“We all have a fear of the unknown what one does with that fear will make all the difference in the world.”

 Dear Jodi,

 I started thinking of today’s date — 07/07 and its significant meaning.   It was seven years ago today, when you met Dr. Lackman.  We all thought the pain in your shoulder and back was caused from an athletic injury — but then these words were spoken, “it could be an osteosarcoma aka bone cancer.”   And you then, passed out.

 I don’t think on that day or days to follow we ever asked “why.”  Instead we prayed for a miracle and began to face our deepest fears – the unknown.  On July 7th, 2003 – our lives were about to be changed forever. 

I believe life presents us with choices including our fears.   But it’s how we choose to respond that makes all the difference.   I only wished you had many more choices.

Love,

Mom

    As I read this this morning I have tears in my eyes. I think about how fear has guided my life too many times and my fears have been so insignificant compared to the fear you and your family experienced 7 years ago. Know Jodi would be very proud of her family today and the ways you all have chosen to deal with all the fears you have experienced.

    Fears are our biggest obstacles. Jodi handled her fears and choices beautifully. We can all learn from her.

      What I know for sure is that Jodi’s greatest strength was her mindset. She was a master of turning the most difficult and fearful into pillars of fortitude. Thanks for acknowledging how she is making a difference in the world.
