A Dream...That Was Real!!!

You were but a child

Young, inquisitive, innocent

Like the very breath of life

The embodiment of all things pure

The beauty between never and forever

An enrichment to all you touched

Then everything tumbled down

Dreams shattered, crumbled

Yet, that was never the…

Only one day...

I'm writing this for anyone who read my last post. The victory of Kendall turning five years old lasted exactly one day. The morning after his birthday we were informed that the painful lump on his shin is indeed a tumor, that it is filled with leukemic cells, and that it is much more aggressive than the one they found in January. Many more tests have to be run, but they are already discussing chemotherapy in addition to the localized radiation. The donor cells were the only thing keeping his… Continue

Birthday Number Five

Today my very special little friend Kendall turned five. What once seemed like a hopeless dream is now reality. Kendall was two when he fought the worst parts of his battle against JMML. We came so close to losing him so many times; our year in the trenches. It seemed like children were dying all around him. It was such a terrifying time. The fear was overwhelming, just as our love for him was overflowing. I remember his third birthday. I broke down and cried for what seemed like an eternity.… Continue

1) If you had to choose between you or your kid having cancer who would you choose:

a) yourself b) your kid

2) If both you and your kid had cancer and there was enough money to find a cure for one of you who would you choose the cure for…

Only one more week until they tally the votes! We need just 300 more votes to make the top 200 orgs and receive $20K that we can use for Seany's pediatric cancer research and clinical trials. Vote today!

is the Fourth of July. Our country's birthday. And, thus, the start of our government. What do you think our Founding Fathers would say about our country's priorities with regard to cancer funding for research? Would they ask why we don't protect children first?

Surely they would want to know why Congress won't fund the annual $30 million…
