My son Caleb Whan was diagnosed with Hypodiploid ALL on August 10, 2007. Hypodiploid ALL is a very high risk Leukemia which requires a bone marrow transplant. Caleb had his transplant on November 20, 2007 at Duke University. Caleb's transplant was nothing short of textbook. We rerurned home to Florida the first week of March 2008 after 4 months in Durham. 4 days after returning home we were informed that Caleb's Leukemia was back and there was no further protocol for a relapse this close to transplant. Caleb got his wings on March 28, 2008 just 11 short days after his 4th birthday.

I am brought here to this place in time to share my thoughts of the superheros that our children cherish so much. I will start with the odvious. Our children who must endure the beast that childhood cancer is are superheros to us all. They show us strength that we never thougth that they… Continue

Letter and Prayer from Daddy

Posted on March 28, 2009 at 12:00am 2 Comments


Well, today marks a year since you went to heaven. I don't think a "year" is an appropriate word to explain the timespan from then until now. I am sure it has aged me 10 years if it has even one day. We call this day of your death your "angelversary" but, it is also a birthday for all of us. On this day one year ago, we were reborn into a life of grief that few must live. Reborn to relive the time we had with you over and over again...because there are no new memories that… Continue

Happy Birthday my son Caleb. We miss you so damn much. We can't believe that you would have been 5 years-old...unbelievable.

This is a poem that a dear friend wrote for us for Caleb's Birthday. Thank you so much Carla...God Bless

For Caleb...

How does a boy go from:

questioning and curious to wise and bold?

fearless and young to courageous and old?

from one moment to the next while creating a past...

all the while not knowing how long it will… Continue

There was a day not too long ago...We were not Mommy or Daddy but just a young couple...We knew we wanted to be together...But I had no idea where to start.

I finally got enough courage to start our life...I bought a ring and started thinking of what to say...Finally, the time was right and the words just came...“are you f-ing kidding me" she said and our plans began.

We saved every penny, we bought a house...All that was missing was the next part of our life...It was scary for us to… Continue

Letter to Elected Officials

Posted on September 22, 2008 at 6:59pm 0 Comments

Dear Elected Official,

My son, Caleb Whan, lost his life to a horrible monster named Leukemia. Caleb fought a valiant battle for over 7 months; just to have this disease take his future and leave us with only 4 short years of his life. Caleb passed on to heaven on March 28th 2008. I have been thinking a lot lately of how to persuade people to get aboard and make a change for the good in this sick world of Childhood Cancer. The most difficult challenge I face, is to get people to… Continue

So great to hear from you. I am thinking of Caleb today..this special day of great sorrow and great joy. Joy that he is whole and free and happy. And such sorrow that he is missed so deeply. It is the most difficult life event, having your child leave your arms.
My heart aches for you and your family.
You are doing great deeds to honor his life and keep hope alive. I feel Caleb's peace with his mission, you have honored him and changed the lives..and continue to..of so many.

Hi Rob,
Would you like the petition signatures for your state to take with you to DC, maybe part of your leave behind packets as there are many stories there? If so email AJ's Dad. See you soon!

Thanks so much...a million things going on here so you are not second guessing at all. Please let me know what you find out because less is best in this economy. I hope you made it through Caleb's birthday, I know how hard it is and I am thinking of you and your family. I look forward to meeting you and everyone else from the group. God bless and take care.
