"Regina, I'm so sorry for your loss. Aliyah and Levi are very close in age.
Levi was in a wheelchair when he went to preschool. By the time he finished kindergarten, he was running down the halls, albeit a wobbly little run. He has tested out…"

Levi was dx 9/2/04 with high risk medulloblastoma. Off treatment 7/23/05. A true miracle... He also had posterior fossa syndrome/cerebellar mutism - had to relearn everything after surgery, including swallowing, speech, walking.... Now a proud first grader, bike rider and handsome boy. Mama's (and dad's, stepdad's and stepmom's) pride and joy, brother of Ethan, Gus and Kayleigh.

Thanks so much for your support. We have a total of 80 applications, so far. We need a total of 350.
For a year now, my husband and I have started a foundation for local children battling childhood cancer. We lost our seven year old daughter on Thanksgiving day, 2006 to Pancreatoblastoma, and we know firsthand the financial and logistical struggles that are encountered by families who are thrust into this unknown and frightening world. Our non-profit foundation uses its money to help ease some of the burdens that are faced by parents with sick children. We are trying to get 350 people to register for a Childhood Cancer license plate. If we can do this, the state of Virginia will approve this plate and the money the foundation receives will be used to help our neighbors, friends, maybe even ourselves. We have developed a web site explaining our cause and we even have DMV on board so that anyone can register right on line. I would value any time or publicity you can give to our mission and hope that you would call me at home at 757-485-1055 or on my cell phone at 757-323-7354 (husband's).
Thanks for taking a look at us, and I hope that you will call.
Finally I have heard from someone with the happy ending I really needed to hear!!! I hear of other medullo "happy" endings but not from someone with disease progression like my son. Thank you soooo much!! Merry Christmas!!
