My wife, Claudia, endured eight grueling months of chemo while continuing to teach her class of second-graders. Undaunted, she faced each day with courage and a smile. The school honored Claudia for her positive attitude and strength by painting her portrait on their wall of Heroes. Upon completion of her treatment, she wrote and published a book about her journey which has inspired me and brought hope and healing into the lives of her readers. Claudia didn't just survive cancer, but recognizes the value of each day and the opportunity to serve others, especially those who face a cancer diagnosis.
