Twitter

We try to keep up with the Livestrong Twitters as much as possible- both Doug Ulman's & Lance Armstrong's (Hey Devon- Dan wants to know where yours is!). I think it's pretty cool/amazing/spot on that Lance completes his rides, and then goes straight to advocating and meeting with cancer survivors.

Thanks to the Twitter faithful who let us know that Dan got a shout out on Lance's Twitter tonight. It was getting kinda heavy in here, and it was good to see the message

Go Dan Go!! http://waegerwillwin.blogsp.... You are in our thoughts and prayers! from web

Dan,
You and I may be two of the few who watch the Accenture MP this weekend now that tigger's gone. I hope you start to feel better and get the strength to swing the sticks. Start slow, a little mini golf is a good diversion to a bad day - just ask my 4 year old son! Keep fighting - we're pulling for ya'!

We're behind you!

I've been following your blog and LA on Twitter, very cool to see the two intersect this morning. Love the "Giving Tree," one of our favorite children books. Especially love the Diet Coke covered coins. You're always in our thoughts and prayers.

Dan - between you constantly talking about Twitter and Michael's insistence on following Lance and Doug, I broke down and joined a few weeks ago. But I never remember to Tweet. or Twit. or whatever. At least Barack Obama follows me...

Very cool--I never knew about Twitter.

Dan and Meg -

I loved the Twitter posts from Doug and Lance. As Anne Willis' notes in her post, I am a Twitter fan, but only after reading the WWW blog. BTW, Anne Willis' twitter page is really sad, with only 2 updates from January. She needs to get with the program!

Sending positive thoughts from CT!
Peace,
Michael

Hey Dan & Meg - Sorry I'm late to the conversation (nothing new there!) I spotted golf on TV at the gym today and thought of Dan, which is a nice change because the only thought I used to have when I saw golf on TV is how boring it is.... But like so many others, I have received from Dan the gift of looking at certain things in a new way. ;-) Hope you two are enjoying the weekend with family. Big hugs, Susan

Dan - was sitting in a haircut place and saw your quote in USA Today a little bit back --- totally reminded me of what a strong movement you've started and everything you've (and meg) been doing for the cancer community.

Waeger has won, and Waeger will win - now and forever.

I bet a bunch of years ago when you were starting your non-profit you didn't think you'd be on Lance's twitter and have the impact you have had.... actually - I bet you knew all along because you're such a fighter and dedicated.

Been loving the blog all along(especially the paying in change at the towing place story) and me and everyone at the First Mile Foundation is praying for you and Meg.

I couldn't think of a better slogan ever - Waeger Will Win - and you will in every possible meaning.

Let me (and Ben) know if there's anything we or the foundation could ever do.

We miss you!!! Can't wait for our weekend;)

Katie Kenyon said...

You are truly inspirational! Love the twitter stuff. I was wondering what all the rage was about twitter. I'm a late bloomer and only discovered Facebook a few weeks ago (make your sister Cindy join). I just wanted to say hi and that I was thinking of you.

Erin said...

Thinking of you both again today...and everyday. Wishing you both peace as you face what each day brings...and hoping that you find something to laugh together about today...in the face of it all.

Like so many others who have commented here, I feel the urge to tell you both that, in our minds and hearts, you HAVE ALREADY WON. But I'm pretty sure that you don't need our reminders; the love that you have for each other, and the impact that you've had on so many, speaks for itself.

Know that our hearts -- like those of so many others -- are with you CONSTANTLY, bearing you up.

With much love,
Erin and Brendon

Dan- Jason's biz partner Brian here...I'm thinking about you...That day I saw you at the hospital was one of the cooler experiences of my recovery. If you remember, when I came by, you had your WHOLE family sitting around you looking on lovingly. You're clearly blessed with splendid people in your inner circle. I was there alone that day and seeing you took me back to my intense time and made me remember that I too was surrounded by loving people. When things got better for me, people got on with there lives and I remember thinking "hey, I kinda liked all that attention"!. In Lance's book, a soldier writes to him and says "sometimes I feel like we're the lucky ones".

Well, I feel fortunate that you reminded me of one of the really good things that came out of my experience- the deep, eternal love of a family that cares.

Furthermore- Sharing your experience in the open honest way that you are in this blog is a blessing to all of us who benefit from your courage. Thank you for that.

Sincerely, Brian Doak

You guys are in my thoughts and prayers...and agreeing with what so many others have said here, you have already WON. Danny...THANK YOU for teaching me what strength is. Be strong, my friend.

Love and Peace,
Kris
