Lance's Journal: A Celebration for Ian, Nov. 2

Life hasn't always been that easy for young Ian Loewe. He was just 7 years old when doctors found cancerous tumors in his abdomen. After 42 weeks of chemotherapy, the cancer had vanished. But three years later the cancer returned and tumors were found on Ian's liver. Eventually he-was cancer-free but now, for a third time, this brave 15-year-old finds himself battling cancer once again.

Ian treasures the time he gets to hang out with his buddies, "They're like my brothers to me." Ian's time-consuming treatment schedule has forced him out of the classroom at Lincoln Lutheran High School, "I don't think I could ask for better friends."

And Ian's friends have a lot of respect for the way he's handled his challenges. Josh Wendland say, "Ian, if I could describe him in one word it would probably be courageous. Because he's gone over so much in his life and just keeps on going, he doesn't stop."

And just what is it that gives Ian the strength to just keep going? Ian says, "I've got a gigantic faith in God, that's all I've put it on, I've prayed my heart out and I've been through so much."

Coming up this Sunday, there is a major fundraiser scheduled to help out Ian and his family. The fundraiser will take place at Faith Lutheran Church at 87th and Adams in Lincoln. The 3-hour benefit is scheduled to begin at 2pm.

Monetary donations can be made at Great Western Bank. There is a cancer fund set up under Ian Loewe.
