Last week, we got to do a photoshoot for the Schoenbeck family. We first learned about their family from a church because a few years ago, their son Andrew went through a difficult battle with cancer. His story gave inspiration to thousands of people and through his trials, he brought God to a lot of people. Andrew and the family are now doing fantastic!
Below is a photo of Andrew and here are some words from him:
Hi, my name is Andrew Schoenbeck. I am 12 years old. When I was 10, I was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer. I had two concerns. My first concern was dying and my second concern was if I would lose all my hair.
Cancer gave me a power. People would listen to me when they wouldn’t listen to me before. I thought it was an excellent time to spread God’s word. On Good Friday I sat down and wrote a song about God. It got on the radio and everybody listened to it. God threw a curveball at me in life and I swung. So when God gives you an opportunity to spread His word, take a chance and go for it.
