When we took Grant in to his Pediatrician just to find out why he was so pale but otherwise healthy and normal we asked his doctor to please check his blood work and the doctor was surprised to find out Grant had Leukemia.. Since then Grant has had a long battle for 3 years but has remained strong and positive with the help of constant prayers ,his entire family, Doctor's and the St.Jude Hospital he is Cancer Free and looking forward to swimming again and being a normal soon to be 8year old little boy. Grant want's to one day work with his current Doctor and mentor Dr. PUI. He hopes to help other children like himself who are sick. He said he wanted to do so many things to help all of the people who have helped him who didn't even know him. He said he wanted to give back. He also said that he would even like to be the President of the United States after he met President Bush which was his make a wish and long awaited dream since they were both from Texas.
He has taught us so much about courage, hope, love and humanity. He is truly a testament of God's strength and Grace.
We are so grateful for each and everyday, even on a bad day we
say Thank you Lord.
His Cousin's John and Kathy along with his Uncle Henry have been with Grant and our Family from day one. We couldn't have made it this far without their support, love and prayers. They never left us to face this alone and for that we are forever grateful. We have so many family, friends and our School and Church who have supported us all through out these 3 years that we thank.
