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.

Goodbye Gage

6 years ago today there were two little carefree kiddos playing the games that 3 year olds play and learning the things that 3 year olds learn. The world was so new to them and they were just beginning to take it all in.

Within a matter of a few months both of them were attacked with the exact same horrid nasty disease we call cancer; ewings sarcoma to be exact. From that point on both of their families have been through hell on earth. Radiation, chemo, lives shattered, brought back together and then shattered again. Many people told their families that it just wasn't right for kiddos to have to suffer through all of this - and those people were correct.

Yesterday one of those little ones, Rebekah, was declared to be cured and cancer free. Today, the family and friends of the other join together in his memorial service. We don't know why. But what we do know is that IT JUST ISN'T RIGHT.
