"I finally got to have a beer."

After his 150th painful surgery, a surgery the Chivers paid for, David's life is getting better. There's always a chance of relapse but for now, he's breathing easy.

It occurred to me while I was talking to David how surreal this Chive Charities effort has become. Zoe Lush was told she would never walk and a month ago she took her first steps. Tamara was told her odds of beating Hodgkin's for the second time were not good - she's currently in remission. And David no longer has a trace of a disease thought to be incurable.

It's these stories of hope that are inspiring a wave of small generosities across America right now. Behind every David, Zoe, Tamara, and Melissa are hundreds of thousands of total strangers who participated in helping them. Each participant finds a little more good inside themselves and carries the spark with them out into the day. I don't quite understand everything that's going on or why, but all of this is so cool. Thanks so much for being a part of it.

And congrats to you, David. You're a great person and I look forward to that fishing trip soon.
