2/10/15 – Valvano … Again

Today my WBCs bottomed. I am in my weakest period for the next few days. All of these signs hung in my room were so helpful to keeping my spirits up as were Helene and Craig who were here all day. Many tears. Many, many times when I didn’t want to believe but they and those signs helped me through it.

I also realized the most important lesson of all. Coach Jim Valvano said it so simply.

“Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up”
“Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.”

I won’t. I promise. #bradstrong. Feeling a bit better for a sec.
