Shafer & Mom Receive Inspirational Leadership Award

Saddened to hear the news of Former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson's passing...Shafer and I were honored to share a special memory with him only a few short months ago. We received a prestigious inspirational leadership award from The University of the Cumberlands and met Senator Thompson as he was the keynote speaker for the event. It was an incredible blessing for me to address the attendees for the VIP Banquet held prior to the ceremony.

Shafer's story truly touched Senator Thompson as he tenderly referenced us in his endearing remarks to the audience. He spoke to us after the event and offered much encouragement for our fight ahead. Since he had suffered through the loss of a child and battled cancer himself, his words had power and meaning to my heart. I thank God for allowing our paths to cross in such a timely way...
