My Story

Ben loved playing with cars, trucks, trains, construction equipment, basically anything with wheels. He loved playing with his friends in the neighborhood - riding bikes and meeting up at the park. He loved being with his family - grandparents, aunts, uncles, and especially his cousins! Ben was generally an easy going and patient child. He was amazingly brave while spending so much time at the hospital and doctors. He only cried on a few occassions, despite hundreds of pokes, shots, tape removals and blood pressures.
