Write this name on your hand
 
As most of you know, I have recently finished up six months of chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. I was fortunate enough to be able to keep CrossFitting (scaled, with extra rest days) throughout. Even did 2 months of SS. Something which really helped me was knowing that there were CFers out there who wrote my name on their hand, then went out and gave it their all in a workout. We create a lot of fabulous energy when we workout, and I'm positive that these good vibes helped me when times were tough.

So I'd like to give something back.

I envision this thread as a place where anyone here can come and ask for the healing energy that CFers have to give. You can ask for it for yourself, for someone in your family, or for anyone else you wish. You can tell us the reason why this person needs healing energy, or you can simply tell us the person's name.

This is the commitment I will make. When a name is posted here, I will write that person's name on my hand and keep their struggle in mind as I do my next workout. I'll do it as long as I am able. Join me if you wish.

To start things out, please write my friend Diane's name on your hand. Diane recently had a mastectomy.

Robert,
Congrats on finishing up the chemo and champing through to the other side.

I've started to pass this thread on and will make a commitment for the same.

Crossfit for my girlfriends Uncle Mike. He had some type of cancer in his neck that they are afraid has spread into his brain. He goes in tomorrow for some scans to see how badly it has spread. Keep him in your thoughts, hearts, and prayers.

It doesn't work unless you tattoo the name on your hand.

Thanks man, again great idea for a thread!

I'm fresh out of names to write on my hand for tomorrow's workout. Someone out there knows someone who needs some inspiration, needs some healing energy, needs a little CrossFit even if they're not a CFer.

Bring it on!

Robert,

My cousin's wife Shannon could use a few happy thoughts. She just lost her mother last Friday after a long battle with cancer. Five years ago (+/-) Shannon lost her father in a freak car crash- he was travelling next to a logging truck when a chain snapped and the logs fell on his car, killing him instantly. Shannon and my cousin Don are stand-up people.

Thanks, good luck, and stay safe!

Dan

Robert,

This is interesting. I am a bit confused, though. I ask these questions so that I can better understand your situation and for what you are asking.

Do the people (whose names are written on your hand) know that their names are written on your hand? Do they benefit from this? Do you benefit from this, and if so what are the benefits? When your name was written on someone else's hand, did you know about it at the time? Would you like describe how this helped you?
