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.

Home Make Over

Tonight was Boey's Home Makeover on ABC. Wow. We met Boey's family at the hospital immediately after their return from their trip while thier house was being built. They were under very strict contract about what things they could tell and what things they couldn't. Watching it tonight was even more beautiful than they described. It was neat to see some positive press on kiddo cancer and the smile and strength that so many of the kiddos, like Boey, have. It is that inner strength (and your prayers and support) that has gotten Rebekah this far. Check out Boey and her video at her Blog, and let them know that Rebekah sent you!

We know many of the families that the show showed as we seem them week after week providing meals at the hospital. It was neat to see them on TV. It was also very difficult to see the ones that we have lost since the filming of that show. As many of you know, our hearts are with all the kiddos and their families, especially with the newly diagnosed.

Like always, please take an extra moment to realize that but for the Grace of God today could be the last day with our children for any one of us. Please do not let tomorrow be a day that you would regret if it turned out to be your last chance with your family.

I'm do mad that I missed it! I saw previews, and wanted to watch just because I always watch this show. I forgot to set the timer, and we were at a birthday party that day. Do you know if/when it might be replayed???
