My Story

Wesley was our gentle giant. He was 6' 7" 250#s of Love and Joy. He had several operations, chemo, radiation treatments over the years. He was in remission for 13 years, but the radiation he received at age 4 caused a very agressive tumor to form. He accomplished many things in his short life. Wesley was great at bringing people together, making them laugh, he loved telling jokes. He touched many lives and taught us to appreciate what we have and that time can be short.
