The Awesome Power of PRAYER



Thank you for your heartfelt and POWERFUL Prayers today for my brother Stephen!

They worked!!!

  I am so happy, humbled and grateful to be able to tell you that the surgery was a success, thanks to your prayers, the donor and the amazing surgical team at UCSF.

After 28 years, he is no longer a diabetic.

To be cured of a disease is nothing short of a miracle. 

Those of us that held vigil during the 4 hour surgery witnessed that miracle and are awestruck.

You were all a great part of this miracle and my family and I will forever be eternally grateful.

I cannot tell you how much your comments and personal emails sustained us today.

God Bless You All

I love you

Terri I am so happy for you and your family! I hope the donor family will one day be able to reach out to you and know how their unselfish act changed the lives of so many. I have never forgotten our conversation a few years ago about your concerns for his health and I am thrilled there is this happy ending! My thoughts and prayers continue for both families.
