My Story

My son was a typical 10 year old boy when he was diagnosed with brain cancer in April 2009. He loved baseball, fishing and hunting. He had a carefree, loving personality and was friends with everyone. In July 2009, he had surgery to remove the bulk of the tumor and a second tumor was found. Despite have radiation and chemo, we were told in August he would died from his cancer and was given 3 weeks. He passed in November but he had a ball in those 3 months. He went on 3 donated hunts, killing an elk, boar, ram and axis deer. We traveled to Houston, TX and met Bret Favre, received an autographed football, and watched the game. Jeff Bates came to our house and sang for him and visited with him. He is missed very much by all of us.
