Ministry of Alumnus Thrives Despite Loss of Arm to Cancer

Alumnus George Gardner (MDiv, '00) lost his right arm and shoulder in 2004 to cancer; both were amputated to keep the cancer from spreading and killing him. Gardner is an area director for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and he finds that his missing arm provides great opportunities to begin conversations with college students on campus. “Students can’t imagine anything as devastating as losing a limb. But they see that if God can help me handle this, he is big enough to help them with their problems, too,” Gardner says.
