Welcome to our CaringBridge site. It has been created to keep friends and family updated about Adam.
Be sure to read the latest in the journal, view the photo gallery, and drop us a line in the guestbook. Also please check out links for more information and articles.
Adam was diagnosed on May 4th, 2007 with High Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, cancer of the blood. Adam's journey has been of the utmost bravery as he has endured countless pokes and procedures, spinal taps, surgery and chemotherapy. We have never been so proud of Adam's courage. This has changed our family forever and we have been so thankful to have so much support from all of our friends and family. Please sign our guestbook as we will have it published for Adam to keep forever.
On May 22nd, 2009 Adam was diagnosed with an isolated CNS (central nervous sytem) relapse. On December 4th, 2009 he received a bone marrow transplant from an unrelated donor.
On December 27th, 2010 Adam relapsed once again in his bone marrow and CNS. We are fighting once again...
On March 11th, 2012 Adam passed away surrounded by his loving family. He is forever a champion and lives in the hearts of many. We miss him more than words could ever describe. Life will never be the same without him here. Our hearts are in ruins.
We will love you always and forever, Adam. You are missed every moment of every day.
The most wonderful and courageous family with the most beautiful, brave and determined daughter will be gathering tomorrow for their final goodbyes.
There are no words good enough to describe the beauty that Tamara possessed. And there are no words awful enough to describe how empty this world will be without her.
I remember meeting this family during our residency at the hospital in 2011. They had just begun their journey, and I was terrified to invite anyone into mine, especially at the stage we were at. I wanted them to continue with some hope in their hearts.
But somehow, their precious little girl touched us all, and we bonded and united in our battles.
They have supported our family in more ways than I can count. They even mounted their bikes last summer in Tour for Kids in honour of their daughter and in honour of Adam.
I wish that these words never had to be written because she should still be here and so should you. It should not be this way. Life is short, precious and a lot less beautiful without the two of you in it. I’ll never in my life understand any of this. It just simply must stop...
Adam, I know you will watch over your friend with kindness.
Please keep this family in your thoughts as they face life without their little girl.
