This video features Crista Shuman a best friend of Lyndsey Worthen. (Lyndsey is Jim Worthens Wife). I recieved an email about 2 or 3 days ago from Lyndsey stating the following:
I'm sure some of you have probably already gotten this email, but I wanted to pass it on becuase it filled my heart with inspiration. I feel so proud to be able to call myself one of Crista's many friends. I've know Crista since we were 13, and I've always looked up to her for here will power and love for life, and this video gives me all the more reason to consider her as my hero in life. I love her with all my heart and I always will.
If you know Crista, or even if you don't, please be aware that the video is a tear jerker, so make sure you have some kleenex nearby.
I know some of you were not able to access the 9News TV interview with the website we sent you originally so here is another link if you are interested. Go to http://www.newsok.com/video. Then scroll down to view video by date, select 9-6-06 then click on the title "Woman Stays Positive Despite Health." Let us know if you encounter problems.
We learned yesterday that Crista's story is also being featured on 9News's sister station in Tulsa and on the K-LOVE website. How amazing is that!!
As touching as the video was on News 9 Oklahoma I personally thought it was a little confusing to get to for the average viewer. So I decided to upload it to Google Video, to convience Crista's friends and family.

I was honered to escort Crista at Jim and Lyndseys Wedding.
