All Roads Lead to a Cure

Last year, in the winter some time, Emily (Kate's 12 yr old sister) & Kate (my 6 yr old with leukemia) sat on the backporch painting pictures for each other. The favorite subject for those 2 are either horses or cats! But one day, Emily brought in a piece of art that she had just completed. It instantly made me cry (and still does).. It was lovingly placed on our refrigerator for months where I would proudly show any & all visitors.

Hi everyone,

First I would like to say HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I just can't tell you how grateful I am to have made it through 2008. At times, I had serious doubts how this year was going to end. But, we made it & now have a positive, hopeful 2009 ahead.

Hi Mary,
Thanks for the post. It's always comforting to feel watched over, even from afar. Your photos are beautiful. I hope things continue to go well for Kate. If you want to get to know Kendall, just watch his video. I made it after we got the news to remind me of the good times we had, that whatever comes next, there will be good times as well as bad.

Hi Mary:
I see you are involved with a CureSearch walk in FL. I am trying to drum up some support for a bill in conference for support for the Caroline Pryce Walker Conquer Childhood Act. Could you contact congress people Bill Young and and Allen Boyd? Could you also get others who live in FL to do it, too? You can do it on the Team Unite link posted on the top of the page or the CureSearch link posted today. Thanks for your help!

Hi Mary,
I hope Kate is doing as well as can be expected. I was wondering if you would be interested in sharing her story in our STory Time Forum on an upcoming Monday?
