Default Snakelover's (David Harkins) Battle

I'm really surprised to see that there is not a thread here about David Harkins and his battle with brain cancer. Actually, I'm a little embarrassed. For those of us with Facebook and that are connected to him there, we know about what he is going through. It's just a monumental battle for him. He's fighting valiantly but could use all the thoughts and prayers we can muster.

Please keep one of our longest standing, most highly regarded members in your prayers as he Kicks Cancer's ***. His influence on this forum can never be over stated.

God bless you, Snakelover. Keep fighting brother.

I hadn't heard anything about this either. David has been a long respected member, for sure.

David and Mindy are both just awesome. I've had the good fortune to get to hang out with them a few times. I really hate that he is going through this. Been praying for him/them daily. Send up some more for one of the good guys.

I’ve been thinking of and praying for him. As I follow his post on FB, I simply didn’t know his “handle” on the green screen… not much of an excuse but it is what it is.

Actually friends with quite a few on FB and have no idea who they are here
