CCC Night… Day 672 16SEP10

Tonight was our bi-weekly meeting at the Children's Cancer Center. It is something I always look forward to and am very disconsolate if I can't attend. Being around the small group of people there and hearing and sharing our stories and experiences is as much comforting as it is saddening. But it is vitally important to all of us. Tonight we got to add two more families to our fold and hear that one of our own, a precious little girl, now cannot walk because of the side effects of chemo drugs we all give to our children. We are stronger though because we are not alone in the wilderness of cancer.

On a much happier note: Joshua had a really fun time with Jamie, Christian, and Allie. He did all of the things one should do when spending the night at ones older brother's house and although he only got five and a half hours sleep he came home with a big smile and played vigorously with his buddies tonight. It is definitely great to be a kid.

Jarod took a few pictures of his LED strips in action. He strategically placed them to light up some of his favorite items on his shelves.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

So happy to hear you had such a great time with your Big brother.

I am saddened to hear you have added two more families to your circle - yet I am glad you will all be there to help them through the maze of life with cancer.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,

Joshua we are so happy you enjoyed yourself so much with Christian, Jamie and of course the adorable Allie! It's the best watching your nieces and nephews grow up and be able to play with them.

Jarrod I love the LEDs! They are so cool.

We are truly amazed at your cancer families tragedies and triumphs at the CCC. The comfort you are able to give each other is truly a gift from God - as no one should travel this road alone. My prayers to all of you and the families always.

Love, Laura and Frank
