i can't believe what i am hearing...

This is a totally un-firefly related thing but I need a place as an outlet for my grief. This guy that I am friends with has cancer. His name is Stu and he is 23 this year. I met him over a year ago through my church and he is the MOST AMAZING PERSON I have EVER met in my entire life. He is so funny, so eccentric, so smart and imaginative and I know that if I ever meet my future husband I would love for him to be just like Stu. He has been struggling with his cancer since about October I think and I had read in his face book that things were looking better for him in the last month. Today my sister got an e-mail from his sister in law and she came to me with the e-mail printed out and tears in her eyes. Things have taken a turn for the worse for Stuart and the doctors are telling him that he might have 1-2 years if he is lucky. It makes my heart feel hollow when I think of him and what might happen. He is so loved and admired. When he started going through treatment and started loosing his hair his male friend s in support shaved their heads in support for him. His brother even recently got a tattoo of his face on his arm. The e-mail said that the cancer is not responding to treatment... but we all have hope. All of us supporting him are Christians and are constantly praying for him. I can't help but think of shepherd Book and his constant faith. When I start to feel discouraged I think of him and he inspires me, a believer in a god lost to the rest of society. If anything does happen to him I know that he is in God’s hands and I pray that God will let him stay with us a little while longer. If you believe in God and in the power of prayer, even though you don’t know him, PLEASE I BEG YOU PRAY FOR STU. He needs all the support we can give him.

It sounds as if Stu wants to teach as many people about love as he can. He'll be in my prayers.
