A Prayer for Andrea – Fighting Fiercely
Although this video may trigger some sadness, I believe that it will inspire you.
When Scott and Andrea got involved in business with my good friend Joce Dionne and I, not only did they quickly become great friends of ours, they also became an important part of the leadership team in Atlantic Canada. We started working closely together and spending a lot of time together and because of this, we have got to know Scott and Andrea very well.
From stopping to visit them each time I drove through their hometown, to 4-wheeling adventures through the woods, to travelling to functions and promotions together, it has been fun spending such quality time getting to know this family. I can remember quite clearly Scott and Andrea’s daughter Kaylee singing at Joce’s retirement party, a performance that brought people to tears!
One day last year, a group of us went 4-wheeling in the woods. We were all laughing because Andrea was so aggressive on her quad, driving through every mud puddle that she could and speeding past all the guys! She was having so much fun – it’s one of my defining memories of her. The very next day we received the message. Andrea had a seizure and that started the journey of her bout with cancer. She was diagnosed with a stage 3 in-operable brain tumor. The news was stunning. How could this happen to them? They are such an amazing couple, great parents and such caring friends.
Andrea and Scott were recently in Florida with us and Orrin Woodward, she was looking great and had a great attitude. I admire this couple so much because they are warriors and they never quit! When Andrea is down, Scott is there for her and when Scott falters, believe it or not, Andrea is there to see the bright side of things. Scott and Andrea are going through a life-changing ordeal but they are handling it like the winners they are. They are such an inspiration and a great example for everyone on how to deal with a challenge. I know that God has a plan for all of us and that his hand is on Andrea and her family as she battles this cancer.
I watched this video a few times and have commented on the website that wrote the article and created this video. I ask for everyone to please keep Andrea, her husband Scott and their daughters Kyra and Kaylee in your prayers. Pray for Andrea to survive and recover from her cancer and pray for her family to be strong and supportive to help Andrea in her battle. Fight fiercely.
Yours in Victory,
