Pray for Cliff Somers

Cliff Somers, the coach of the very successful Fremont XC program, suffered a stroke today while running and is reportedly recovering. This is from his principal, Scott Sherman: "Today Cliff Somers suffered a stroke while running. He made his way to Gerber Hospital where he was found in the parking lot by a nurse. They immediately began to work on him and alerted his family. He was then transferred to Spectrum Hospital and at some point was given a clot killing drug (the one that is always advertised). 'That drug has worked miracles,' in the words of his wife Trisha. I visited with Cliff and Trisha earlier today and by the time I left, I could see vast improvements in his motor control and speech. Our last update was that Cliff was continuing to improve greatly. The family is asking that people only send cards and avoid visiting until Cliff and his family are settled..."

Our prayers are with the Somers family, as well as the entire community. Cliff is an amazingly energetic and inspirational young man. We wish him a speedy recovery.
