Resistance is futile!

October 28, 2011


“Can we have organic soda?” “If we can find some with no added sugar, we’ll see Morgan” I said. I knew this would be hard on them because when I talked to them and told them why we were making this change, they seemed to zone out.

October 17, 2011


I wonder what it might feel like to have all the vitamins and minerals I’m supposed to have inside my body, there all the time. What if I had a nutritiously sound mind and body?

June 10, 2011


I am happy I found this video. This is what I want for Madison and every child with this disease. Two years is a long time and the journey was not an easy one but, seeing this beautiful young lady now, lets me know every test, probe, chemotherapy, all the time away from school, friends […]
