Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and his brother, Marcus, are thankful for the well-wishes they received as Marcus battles cancer.
The siblings traveled to Virginia to see their mother for the Christmas holiday. Greginhollywood reports that Black posted an update on Marcus:
"More than a few times over the past week, between packing and doctor's appointments I stopped, opened up my laptop and read my brother some of the kind words folks have written. He can't always say what he's feeling, but more times than not tears rolled down his cheeks. Those wishes and prayers have given him renewed resolve to keep fighting this thing. Hell, he even walked into the house this morning on his own two legs -- no wheelchair, no walker, no cane -- so maybe that Christmas miracle has begun. Thank you all so much. Merry Christmas, Lance"
