a few weeks ago we went camping with some friends to the delaware river family campground. this was my first camping experience since my brownie days, so i was a little nervous to be sleeping outdoors in a tent! besides having to move our campground because of the torrential rainfall earlier in that week, it was a blast! the weather was beautiful (a little chilly at night!) we had a ton of delicious food...especially the smores! we had a great time!

so inspiring.

i just came across this video of australian x factor contestant karl dimachki. he was diagnosed with tongue cancer about a year and a half ago. doctors had to remove half his tongue and also had cancer spots shaved from his voice box and lymph nodes removed. after six months of chemo and radiation he was told he would never sing the video.

this was an news article posted on today tonight, an australian online news site.

Simply walking onto the stage to perform was a victory for The X Factorcontestant and cancer survivor Karl Dimachki.

Diagnosed with tongue cancer little more than 16 months ago, Karl had half his tongue taken out, cancer spots shaved from his voice box and a number of lymph nodes removed. He was told he would never sing again.

He underwent six months of intense chemo and radiation therapy and at the time it was believed it would take four years for Karl just to talk properly again.

He defied his prognosis and was able to speak immediately after surgery - it reduced his doctors to tears.

The same doctors were in shock again last night as they watched Karl take toThe X Factor stage. This time it was judge Natalie Imbruglia who was crying as she stood in appreciation.

Karl says his faith played a huge role in his survival.

"During my operation i had a very unique dream," Dimachki said. "Michael the arch angel had his hand on my shoulder to let me know I'm going to be fine [sic]."

He also described the pain he endured during his treatment.

"It's like pouring a whole bottle of acid into your insides and radiation is an equivalent to being in a microwave - so cooking the insides of you [sic]."

Karl had wanted to be a singer from the age of five and would rehearse in front of his family for hours. Last night he was able to fulfill a dream and give the audience a self-styled lesson in life.

"I'm just here to prove a point if you have a dream go on and do it 'cause God will always put a hero inside you," he told the audience.

Karl is through to the next round - a boot camp in Sydney with one of the judges where he'll take on their advice before performing again. We wish him all the best.

happy weekend.
