In May of 2007, my bride was diagnosed with Primary Amyloidosis and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).
Irene was hospitalized at Dominican Hospital on April 30, 2007, and two weeks later was transferred to UCSF. Following a stem cell transplant, Irene is now recovering at home after being discharged from UCSF on Friday, July 20, 2007. For a 2007 overview of Irene’s journey:
Irene and I are eternally grateful for the outpouring of love and support expressed by people literally around the world.
I am inspired and humbled by Irene’s courage and sense of purpose surrounding this journey. Her life exudes joy despite the tremendous challenge ahead. She blesses every person that she comes in contact with. Her smile continues to be contagious. Simply put, she is amazing!
Our trust and faith in Jesus Christ as the loving infinite and eternal God, increases daily. He deserves all the glory.
Lamentations 3:22-23 — “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
