Prayers Requested for AR Member (and my good friend) Clint Miller
I don't have a lot of details to share at this point, but my good friend and fellow ActiveRain member Clint Miller is in an ICU right now fighting for his life against cancer. His wife tweeted about this earlier tonight from his account. Based on information I received today, Clint was diagnosed a few weeks ago with stage 3 testicular cancer and been undergoing treatment. He rallied recently after a brief hospital stay, then went downhill again and ended up in the hospital this afternoon. He is in critical but stable condition.
I have often referred to Clint as the "most transparent" person that I know in social media and blogging, and I mean that. He has always worn that as a badge of pride, and he is never afraid to share even the roughest details of his personal history with his friends online.
This post that Clint composed during this past Thanksgiving should give you a sense of who this man is and what I mean by my label/compliment:
Clint was the first "guest" we had on our BlogTalkRadio show when we started back over two years ago, and he was the first person to step up and bring his company as a sponsor for many months thereafter. He's always been a loyal friend of mine, and a supporter. He and I are almost exactly the same age, so his illness hits especially close to home for me. Having lost one of my best friends to cancer in early 2008, I hope Clint will fight through this.
I don't want to belabor the point here - he needs your prayers desperately. Pray for Clint please.
UPDATE: A site was set up today to allow for direct donations to Clint's family. There is also a mailing address there if you would like to send a card to him: http://clintmillerbenefit.wordpress.com/
