In mid-March of this year I wrote the following:
'A great Recovery Story starts this week, on 19th March 2015. Well, the Story is already happening, but a new phase starts on that date. Phil Valentine, Executive Director of Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR) begins his amazing walk of the Appalachian Trail.'
A walk from Georgia to Maine, distance 2,185 miles. By a man who had recovered from an addiction to cocaine and alcohol, and survived Stage 4 oropharyngeal cancer - cancer of the tongue.
Let's now roll on six months...
All glory to God.
I'm tired, think I'll go home now.
Recovery makes all things possible."

What can one say about such an achievement from a truly remarkable man? "Awesome Phil, just awesome. Heartiest congratulations! My love to all the Valentine family."
