On august 17th, 2005, our beautiful, energetic, four year old son, Jeremy was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma stage IV. It came without many warnings and hit us like a ton of bricks. We were one of those parents who thought this could never happen to us, well it did.
When we thought that was the darkest time of our lives, Jeremy showed us the true meaning of life. He accepted all he had to go through with laughter and a smile. Never once did he let cancer get the best of him. Through his journey we have met incredible people, unconditional love, and acts of human kindness that has brought us to our knees.
I truly believe these special children were put on this earth not to endure so much suffering, but to remind us of what life is really, truly about.
