Cancer Patient Uses APX to Witness During Treatments

The headline of this story sums it up, but the man himself says it better:
I have been using Wordplay and Wise Up and Rock to listen to during my proton beam therapy. You see, I get to have prostate cancer.
I really brought them in for the three techs that I usually deal with, one who is a Muslim. I have been waiting to engage them about the songs because the Muslim has been out on vacation since I brought them in.
The two non-Muslims are very aware the songs are parodies and that the songs are Christian based; however, so far, they've popped in and out of the room too much to hear a song from beginning to end. They have stopped, however, trying to sing the original lyrics to the music so they can listen to the new lyrics.
Although they are hearing the songs piece meal, I found out they are playing the CDs for other patients going through therapy for various types of cancers who haven't brought in their own music because they enjoy the music and the lead singer who "has a great singing voice, able to adapt it to sound like many bands."
At any rate, the music will open doors for me to be used by God to reach others. This is why I say I "get to have prostate cancer"; I am using the malady to show I am at peace with my predicament and to share about who is responsible for my peace and my hope--the one true God.
I plan on leaving the disks behind after I finish my treatment 4SEP13 so that they will always have them, and I will buy a few more to round out the collection.
