6 years later, Ben Baltz is one lucky child, now a young man. We as a family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and generosity through this journey; we could not have done it without your support.

For anyone who finds this page because your child has been DX with bone cancer, please seek out Dr. Mark Scarborough at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, FL. He only wants what is best for your child and his expertise in the field of bone tumors is 2d to none.

Our phone continues to ring and ask if Ben doesn't mind coming and speaking with a new amputee, please continue to reach out, because he smiles and says sure whenever asked. He spoke with a strong special young lady from Chipley, FL a few weeks ago; Ben got her to smile when he told her he could hang from his blade upside down in a tree.

Lastly, we met a very nice man in Curaçao the other day, I was sharing a Ben story and he stopped me mid sentence. "I don't want to hear what he has done, I want to know what he is going to do"; I will continue to encourage all my children with this statement.

Now, back to the baseball diamond, Ben made the varsity team of his middle school and also is playing his last year of little league, so it will be a busy few months!

God Bless and Keep the Faith,

JC and Kim Baltz
