My Story

Randy was a typical 2 year old boy...happy, funny, loving, inquisitive. At 27 mths old, he was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). He spent the next 6 weeks in the hospital 60 miles from our home. At times during that stay his situation became very critical. He received over 60 units of blood. Randy eventually went into remission (what glorious news!!) He was able to do many of the things other children he age did. Fishing with his grandpa was one of his favorite things to do. He had dogs and puppies, got to visit relatives farms and play with the animals and ride tractors and ponies, went to the circus, helped Grandma & Grandpa garden, went swimming, boating, taking long car rides with his grandpa, played with his cousins and picked flowers for his grandma. He made us laugh and cry. The day we were holding his 5th birthday party at his grandparents home, we discovered he was in a coma. He became an angel 10 minutes before the party was due to start.
