Cancer Is Pissing Me Off

The bright smile, the joy in his eyes.  A true all American boy.  A life lived in faith and trust in God.  You look at him and know he has everything ahead of him.  Graduation, Prom, College, a Career, Family.  For Ian Lockwood these things will never happen because he was a life taken too young.

Most of you know my feelings of hatred toward cancer  and this doesn’t help the matter.  I wonder why cancer is even something that has to exist.  Now while I know there is a reason that God lets things happen there are moments like this I question why do some things have to happen.    This amazing young man I have followed since I moved back to the area.  I was inspired by his strength and the coming together of a community.

Ian Lockwood was diagnosed with brain cancer during the summer of 2009.  After surgeries and treatments he got to spend a portion of 2010 cancer free, then in September it returned.  This horrible horrible disease that stole a life too young.  The outreach of the community to his family is heart touching.  Knowing the loss of a life and the hurt his family is feeling is heart wrenching. I wish I could make the pain go away from them all, because I remember the pain I had when my mom was diagnosed with cancer and I am sure that is nothing compared to what Ian’s family and friends are going through.

So I am posting to ask you, my readers, to join with me in lifting up Ian Lockwood’s family and friends.  Every thought and prayer you could spare, give.  My home will be and so will my youth group I lead.  This young man has witnessed to so many through his trail and I know will continue even after death.  His story is heartbreaking and heart touching all at once.

To Ian’s family, words are not enough but I am so deeply sorry for your loss and will lift you up in prayer that God will give you strength.  LIVESTRONG!
