In Loving Memory of Our Alex (January 18, 1996 – August 1, 2004)...

Many of you know Alex as a courageous cancer advocate, a hero, the lemonade girl who was an inspiration to millions around the world. To us, she was all of these things but so much more…We would like to share with you the Alex we knew…our beloved little girl.

From the beginning, Alex did things her way – she came into the world in a hurry 13 ½ years ago, arriving more than a month before her due date. The doctor and nurse prepared us for the fact that she would probably be… Continue

I want to remember him, and honor him. He deserves to be talked about. I want to share him with the world. Is it so strange to want to do these things?

Tobin - Another recurrence

On June 22, 2009, an MRI showed new growth. A spine MRI was clear (hallelujah) but an LP showed atypical cells. Tobin had another MRI and then he had surgery on July 9. Our brilliant and talented neurosurgeon got it all. Tobin will have another LP next week and then the planning for re-radiation will begin.
