Visit Rebekah's Page to get updates, read messages and send messages to Rebekah and her family through comments. This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

Another loss and more breaking hearts


Once again, our lives are put into perspective. Josh's mom has talked about a young lady (12 years old) at her church who was diagnosed with cancer this past May with an inoperable brain tumor. I have watched her site periodically and been praying for her. Her name is Labri Dirske.

Today, she lost her battle. She is now in heaven and cancer free, but her family is mourning. Please keep her family in your prayers. And give your kids an extra hug tonight and let them know how much you love them and appreciate them. Check out Labri's page and sign her guestbook to let her family know you are thinking of them and praying for them.


The beautiful white rose that has touched so many of us in so many ways is by and used with permission from Australian photographer Lisa Hocking. Please see her blog and thank her for its use.

Got caught up on your blog a bit today.Seeing others dealing with pain and loss always helps put things in perspective. My Sarah is not doing so well. We finally found a doctor that gave an unconfirmed diagnosis of Hereditary Sensory Neuropathy IV. She is sceduling for a brain MRI and a EMG to help confirm this diagnosis. We are relieved to finally talk to someone who believed Sarah ( a wonderful Neurologist @ Kaiser) and has some answers. It is a strange feeling to be relieved and sad at the same time. I believe God answered our prayers by leading us to this doctor and I believe he will continue to help Sarah and us to help her live with this rare condition if this is indeed what she is living with.

An interesting way how i found this site, I was actually searching for Labri's site (we were friends) and then i found this one. Seeing how other people cared about her really touched my heart. I have now been constantly checking this webisite to see news about Rebekah. May she get better and live a long happy life.

Thank you Paige. We very much welcome you to Rebekah's site. Your last message hit me very strong, especially in light of this being Labri's post. As far has she has come, in many ways we forget that it is possible that Rebekah may not survive. Please don't take this wrong, but THANK YOU for reminding us that it is possible that it might not happen. Even we need to be reminded to cherish every day even more than we are sometimes.

-Scott (Rebekah's Daddy)
