My Story

Edgar was my neighbor. He was my younger brothers best friend. When Edgar was diagonised is was very sad for me and my family. He was constantly in and out of remission. I remember seeing Edgar in the Ronald Mcdonald House commercials. Yes, they used Edgar, and I am so sure it was because of the smile he had. No matter how sick or swollen he was, he always had that smile. He was a special guy.
