My Story

Peter celebrated his 10th year anniversary of diagnosis on 7/31/07 as he was diagnosed in 1997 at age 2. He has never been in remission though. As he became a teenager on 8/9/07, our Roman Catholic parish priest got an instant approval from the bishop to give Peter the Confirmation on his 13th birthday. On 9/8/07, the priest came to our house to give him the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. Another blessing for Peter. Back in 1998, Make-A-Wish-Foundation fulfilled his wish by sending my family to the Vatican City to be blessed by the Pope John Paul II. Our Peter passed away very peacefully in his bedroom on 9/11/07 (Tue) at 7:45am while mommy, Jonathan, Catherine and daddy were watching. His message to us on 9/4/07, exactly 7 days before he passed away, was "This is the message from God truly - Keep it up. Stay happy. Don't ever look down," when he had a miraculous bump after platelets transfusion from 2 to 212. Peter had 524 bags of platelets and 172 bag of red blood cells of transfusion lifetime. May God bless you all.
