"Our neighbor and friend used his drone to record a bunch of friends and family from our church and others walking and praying around our house very shortly before I found out about my diagnosis and before I went to Markey Cancer Center to meet the doctors for the first time.

They Prayed and Sang and brought joy to my entire family. Such a gift!"
