All We Could Think About 5 Years Ago...

was our adorable little E making it one day, one week, one month, one year, FIVE YEARS free from his cancer.  It seemed like eternity.  I remember walking the survivor lap with him at Relay for Life, him swimming in his shirt because he was so little and praying with every bone in my body that he would see 5, and simultaneously my heart breaking for the parents who were losing their children.  To me, the greatest heartache Earth could ever hold.

Yesterday E had his bloodwork done and his tumor marker is super low, the most wonderful news!!!  So much has happened in the past 5 years, but we are so determined to honor E and his amazing spirit by never taking one single moment for granted.  And he is now part of the fight against cancer as he understands more and wants to do more.  
This year we are again part of Relay for Life, and have been for 5 years now.  We continue to share E's story of hope and embrace his journey as a survivor.  We continue to fight this disease because we will never forget what this disease is, what it can do, and much more importantly what it cannot do.  It cannot keep people from coming together to raise funds, honor their loved ones, and keep hope in their hearts.   If you would like to donate to our team, E-Strong, you can do so at this link.  Thank you ever so much.
