#DONTCOMPLAIN (a Message of Inspiration from a kid w Cancer)

Every now and then, God speaks and it happens. We were sitting at breakfast discussing future plans for my son’s life. We (Angelo, Tim Mcneil, and myself) were talking about the awesome opportunity and platform that Angelo has, to give God glory through his battle with Cancer. The doctor shared with us that Angelo is probably one of two people with this condition. Instead of viewing it as a problem, we see it as a privilege to be chosen.

In a radio interview, Angelo was asked to offer a message to listeners tuning in. He said, “Don’t complain, there is somebody that has it worse than you.” As I reflected on how that message brought tears to my eyes, this campaign began. How can a kid with cancer say to the world, DON’T COMPLAIN? We added the visual of the finger over the mouth, a hashtag, removed an apostrophe, prayed for the success of the message over social media, and pressed SEND. What happened after that is bananas!!! People from all over joined ranks with us in sharing it!!
#DONTCOMPLAIN

I would like to offer a few reasons why you shouldn’t COMPLAIN!!

Complaining Offers……
No Help
No Hope
No Healing

Complaining…
Harbors…the pain
Hinders…the process
Harms……the person

Complaining is…
Unbecoming
Useless
Unproductive

Complaining…
DENIES… you any of chance for deliverance
DEADENS… An already lifeless situation
DARKENS….. An already doomed doorway of deliverance

Complaining…
SEALS………..your fate
SEVERS……….your lifeline to the Savior
SETTLES……….your case before HELP can hear it

I’m riding with Angelo on this one, #DONTCOMPLAIN

  3. I concur! I admire the peace that surrounds Angelo, it is so admirable. He’s not angry, bitter, nor a seeker of pity. We can learn a lot from him and this journey that we somewhat share with him. This message that has been received among
    many will provide the blueprint for endurance; the very substance in which is needed to run this race called….life. #Dontcomplain

  15. This young man Angelo has taught me a lot thru his courage and willing less to embrace his condition. Instead of complaining about it and asking God why me, he’s using the opportunity to Praise God and give him the Honor he’s deserves in the mist of our storm. When you praise God no matter the circumstances he will always get the Glory! Sometimes our praising is not for us but it’s for someone else! Angelo in his unselfishness identifies that! When I don’t feel like it he never end complains he moves on the power within to push thru, that gives me strength & encouragement! May God bless you, heal you, and Continue to use you…..Love you
