The very first news I have to share is great, great news!
My buddy Braden Hofen received test results today… NED!!!!! No evidence of disease!!!!!
Go ahead and do a happy dance, sing off-key at the top of your lungs, and if you live in a big city, stick your head out of the window and take a deep breath. Ready? (This is for Braden, now…)
Yell, “Take THAT cancer!”
This is 6 year-old Braden’s attitude, and I admit I love joining him in this sentiment. You GO Braden, you Go! For everyone who has been praying for him, thank you, thank you!
While we are on the subject of dances, I want to tell you about a 25 year-old woman named Jolene who has been fighting cancer since she was 17. On the tip-top of her “Bucket List” is to meet Ellen and dance with her on the show. Well, some wonderful friends/angels came through with VIP tickets to the show on May 25th! Now, her friends and supporters are posting a video on the Ellen Show Facebook wall showing her how much Jolene would love to dance with Ellen! They are asking people to please post and share this video:
I hope you get to dance with Ellen, Jolene!
I don’t enjoy going from joy-filled news to disturbing, but I feel the need to pass this on. I heard this story today about a woman who may have her children taken from her because she has cancer.

Just wondering. Do you still have colored hands for Brodie?
Sometimes miracles take a lot of prayer and a lot of work, but my goodness…
Braden… NED… Braden!
