Dustin Lance Black and his brother Marcus making a journey from Michigan to their mother’s home in Virginia for Christmas.
Marcus is ill with cancer and Lance had asked for prayers for his brother.
Earlier today, the Oscar winning screenwriter posted an update. Here is an excerpt:
More than a few times over the past week, between packing and doctor’s appointments I stopped, opened up my laptop and read my brother some of the kind words folks have written. He can’t always say what he’s feeling, but more times than not tears rolled down his cheeks. Those wishes and prayers have given him renewed resolve to keep fighting this thing. Hell, he even walked into the house this morning on his own two legs — no wheelchair, no walker, no cane — so maybe that Christmas miracle has begun.
Thank you all so much.
