Hi Linda! Thank you for your kind words. I went on your website and read about your daughter. I think the jewelry is beautiful- what a wonderful way of honoring Amy. I've also been the Tomorrow Fund's website before. It's great to know of so many other organizations that are dedicated to the same cause.
Thanks for making a difference! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.
Thanks for your message. Yes, The Tomorrow Fund is a wonderful place. My husband's cousin Julie lost her battle with Leukemia in the 80's. Dr. Forman was her oncologist. Her parents worked with Dr. Forman to help start The Tomorrow Fund. While we were familiar with it before... we are so much more so now. I am so very thankful for the people there.
Perhaps we will meet each other at one of the events someday.
Thanks for the encouraging words. We grab hold to anything positive. The hope continues always! So sorry your beautiful daughter lost her battle. This disease is just awful, especially for kids. Thank You! Chris
Jt was in 10th grade when diagnosed and is still on home bound school, in hopes of going back by the third quarter. Did Amy have trouble with the school and graduating? Our school keeps telling me it won't be an issue, but I've heared terrible stories about straight A students who have fought cancer most of their high school years and then being told they can't walk with their class because they are short one credit. JT is not a stright A student but works hard to complete whatever they give him to do.
We are also Cathloic and JT went through confiramation the year before he was dianosed. I'm so glad for that! It helps ease the thoughts that float around in my head at night when I can't sleep. I like you, am grateful to know how special life is and want to share that secret with every parent I meet.
my sister Amy lived in fayetteville for many years i think she was in sevearal places in nc while in the army . last year they moved to china grove . her husband jason epley was the city planener for fayettevile shae was in the army for 8 years before she had kids. her boys are now 6 and 4 . she spent 2 years in turkey and went all over other places too.
her husbands famliy lives around there and and on some island near there . we visited them a few years ago for a 1/2 day on our way back from vacation to florida before we had Lane.
I didn't want to say before because I thought it sound well you know, but yes I would have choosen JT. He is much stronger than his sisters but this has made him question his faith. He just doesn't understand how God can let this happen to little children. I'm hoping he is just going through the normal teenage questions about faith and I know he'll get through it.
