Arden Nation Joins PAC2

Profile Information

Please list your CarePage/Caring Bridge/blog site, your organization, or your reason for being here?
Optional question where you can tell us more about you, your child, your reasons to be here, or simply introduce yourself.
This was a journal entry, dated Oct. 5th, 2008:

"I promise to post another entry soon, but I have the awful responsibility to report that Jeremy Wilson has joined Arden in heaven's playground today. Please pray for the Wilsons as they now must create their own terrible 'to do' list this week and are the newest members of this club, which no parent wants to join.

I've also just learned that one of our fellow CHOP families, the Kizers, have lost their beloved son Brendan this weekend.

I am starting to feel as if we have been standing on a battle ground, with children falling at our feet. We've felt so frustrated, helpless, unable to save them.

We are not helpless. We can make a difference. We HAVE to. This is just not acceptable!

It's not right that I've just attended Zackary's funeral, only to get this news about Brendan and Jeremy today.

It's not right that among our A.I. duPont and CHOP acquaintances and friends, those we got to know during Arden's treatment, more children have died than have survived (and not because of the hospital, because of the diseases and their toxic treatments.)

We MUST do better. We can. We will.

God bless.
God's peace, Jeremy and Brendan,
-A. "

My daughter, Arden, died on August 30, 2008 after her second stem cell transplant. She had been declared NED from her stage IV, high risk Neuroblastoma in April.

She is why I'm here. I'm here for the children and the families, for while I may not be able to have hope for Arden's survival anymore, I still have hope.

Beautiful Baldness

Posted on March 23, 2011 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

I had the extreme pleasure and honor of attending three incredible St. Baldrick's events in Philadelphia this month.


They.  Were.  AWESOME!


It's difficult to describe the energy, the enthusiasm, the JOY of these events.  Seeing people pass around a hat, filling it with cash (going towards research) amounting to $1000 to see two guys shave off their beards and mustaches in addition to their heads almost made me fall off of my chair.  


We had…


Greater awareness needed... among the Aware

Posted on January 12, 2011 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Attempting to unite the many childhood Cancer foundations with similar, if not the same goals (some dedicated to specific diseases, others focused on quality of life issues or providing comfort rather than research) is a monumental task, and I so appreciate PAC2 for providing an open forum where information can be shared so that our community can become more aware of itself.


Awareness about childhood Cancer awareness?  Yes.  It's desperately needed.  




Reach the Day Meets the Circus (and Congress, too) 2010

Fewer of us.

There seemed to be fewer childhood Cancer advocates this year than last year, that's for sure.

That, however, hopefully will not reflect the impact we had on those with whom we met this week.

CureSearch, that is, CureSearch for Childhood Cancer (new name) has undergone a makeover of sorts over the past several months, from administration changes to the new CEO, John Lehr. There is a new vision; there are…

If it happened all at once...

If the 12,400+ children under the age of 20 who will be affected by childhood Cancer this year were in the same place, at the same time in the U.S., all at once...

If a camera crew was there as each child was poked, prodded, tested, scanned and hooked up to lines, tubes, catheters, bags of blood, platelets, and chemo (labeled "toxic")...

If viewers caught a glimpse of the pain, the agony shared by parents, grandparents, loved ones and friends as…

Hi Amy! I had been meaning to leave a message for you- I saw your bio and pic for the 46 moms.... I think it is amazing thing that you all are doing! It was wonderful to meet you and your family at Reach the Day, and now to "meet" Arden through your caringbridge website. An amazing girl with an amazing family.
Warm Regards,

Hi Amy:
Can you help us to get other geo group members from NY to contact Rep. Nita Lowry about the iniative posted on the front page, funding for the Caroline Pryce Walker Conquer Childhood Cancer Act? Also, Rep. Rosa DeLauro of CT needs calls. Michelle K. has posted about PA and Sen. Arlen Specter. Thank you!

Hi Amy, I've been meaning to write you to tell you that you had wonderful suggestions to Kate for RTD. Did you get a response? Hope to meet you RTD 2010. Take care.

It looks like from your pictures that you stayed at Give Kids the World! We did too, in October of 2007. My daughter Paige, 2 1/2, died the next month from AML, after a year of treatment.
I'm so sorry that your precious Arden died. A strange fellowship, this, of mother's grieving their little children.
Wishing you a day of good things, Kerri

Hey, Amy! I see all the time that you continue to check Ness's carepage ... thank you. I read your update about your trip to D.C. Thank you, for being such an advocate. I was going to email you today to tell you that I joined PAC2 and that I sent an email to Oprah. I had sent one to her last year, shortly after Vanessa finished transplant, but had never heard from her staff. I am sure she gets lots of requests. Hopefully, when her staff sees so many on the same subject, they will suggest a show on childhood cancer to her. Have to run. Take care. Tracy
