A powerful and emotive story, and a reminder of what is important in life.

I have to say that I gagged on the line about Becky being amputated from the waist down. PLEASE forgive me if this is a true story. I just couldn't imagine any situation for which this would be the treatment, and I felt it was too shocking. Something I am having to learn is that often "Less is more". If you have something strong or painful to say, it is often more effective to say it gently. Feel free to PM me if you want to discuss this further.

Becky's courage was amazing and an inspiration to all who read this story.

I'm surprised this hasn't had more comments. Yes, it has a gruesome side, but it's packed full of faith and hope. Your last line may be a little cliched but it nevertheless sums up your story powerfully. Thanks, I enjoyed this.
