I have watched this video several times, and it continues to be a powerful example of what love is all about.  Watch it and be inspired!

Lance: talk about inspiring! You got me all riled up with this video. It truly is an inspiring site to have seen father and son go through it all. To push themselves in such a way…it’s simply amazing.
